it's really weird. i'm only 7 weeks preg. it's no big deal but i get into a rubbish vicious circle of drinking water to sooth the dry mouth, then needing the loo, then going back to sleep, then waking up with an unbelievably dry mouth again, drinking more water, and needing toilet again! has anyone else experienced this?

It's been driving me mad since I had a + test. I'm 12 weeks now and it still hasn't gone.

I have this - it is because I am mouth breathing much more than normal. A sip of water usually sorts it out though. And Breatheright strips when I start snoring at extreme volume later in pregnancy!

I can relate myself... it just another one of those pregnancy symptom. I just try to stay hydrated, and chewing gum also helps. Keep yourself hydrated enough… Drink water throughout the day. Also keep away from caffeinated drinks as they would dehydrate you which would make your problem worse. There is also some kind of dry mouth products in the form on lozenges which may help. Also, your nose is probably stuffed up from the pregnancy hormones and all, so you may be sleeping with your mouth open and not realizing it either.
