Am I the only one experiencing a gross taste of metal? Sometimes it's just a bad taste and other times it's like I've been sucking on pennies! Nothing I eat or drink takes it away! Anyone know of any remedies?

that is actually a common symptom in early pregnancy. I'm really not sure what causes it - maybe something to do with iron in the blood? I should google it. Anyway - I have no idea what you can do re: the taste. it must be miserable though! hugs!

found this:

Thanks, Liza! That link helped a lot! Interesting that it says to eat foods that are acidic to get rid of the taste. It lists tomatoes as an example. I've been craving tomatoes and I wonder if my body is naturally trying to tell me something! hmmm...

I don't really know how to help you.. but I wanted to tell you that I've been having that bad taste too! It's not bad somedays, but others I swear it's like I ate.. I don't even know. I'm WAY past sucking on pennies though!
It was kinda funny the other day, I had that taste in my mouth REALLY bad and I told my DH about it, hes like "Is THAT where my screw driver went???" haha!

All I've been doing for it is chewing a LOT of mints and mint gum! I think I've gone through about 20 packs of Tic Tacs in the past few days! It doesn't help much but at least covers up the bad taste for a little while xD

you should try Altoids, Amber. They help with morning sickness, and I've found them fairly useful in getting rid of the metallic taste. In addition you don't have to down twenty packs
