OK so I'm 9 weeks and 4 days pregnant. Feeling truly awful, nausea all day long and since week 7 I've had this constant ghastly metallic taste in my mouth?? Has anyone else ever had this? I never had anything like this in my first pregnancy and it's really upsetting me because I'm freaked out it won't go away. Food tastes so yucky. Any words of reassurance would be much appreciated
The metallic taste is completely normal, I always carried around some polo mints and found that having some cream crackers around mid morning stopped me from feeling yukky! If you are really struggling with nausea get some travel sickness bands, you can get them from the chemist! I didn’t suffer too badly with the sickness but wore these bands and I managed to carry on as normal! It will go away though, good luck!
I had that. It was awful. The only thing that helped with the metallic taste were See's Candies Dark Chocolate Lollypops (something you can only get on the West Coast of the USA - though shipping to UK might be possible). I think any dark chocolate, semi-sweet hard candy would probably do. These just last a long time, so I'm partial to them.
The taste has gone for me now and I’m 19 weeks but that’s not to say it won’t come back (hopefully it doesn’t!!) but it’s so normal so don’t worry. Let me know how you get on wearing those bands, I see a lot of ladies wearing them when I go for my hospital appointments so I think it’s quite a popular trick these days!!
Oysterbabe you have my sympathy. How on earth have you coped? I've already lost 6lbs, my diet now consists of toast with butter, jacket potato with butter and pasta with butter. I feel so anxious about it all
