Oh that taste - by far my least fav symptom.
The nausea was less annoying.
So nothing I tried got rid but chewing gum helped A LOT.
Food and washing teeth only lasted minutes, but at least the chewing gum would last a while (also Listerine Zero did dull it for a while- kept some in my desk drawer)
Also drinks like peppermint/flavoured tea/ flavoured water/ soda and lime/ squash help while ur drinking and get the fluids into you ( I found plain water very unappetising when I had the taste thing even though its what I normally drink and u need to keep ur fluids up)

unfortunately the taste thing does last a while (well it did for me till about 18-20 wks) but it does reduce and then go
Good luck

(ps hitting someone who suggests ginger with a big stick helps with the irritability wink and if u are feeling rubbish have what u fancy, even if it is chip shop chips - those 1st tri days don't last long and it DOES get better)

I feel so sick and tired. Went out for lunch today and feel bloated and stuffed and sick. I think I'd rather be sick than feel it constantly.
I've not been this tired in pregnancy before, might be something to do with my 2 non sleeping dc and uni work though.
