Yes, brushing my teeth often makes me nauseas and makes me gag, ESPECIALLY in the morning. I've yet to actually puke though (knock on wood)

I'm okay on the teeth front. Not so much if I brush my tongue. I do find that it's easier if there isn't any toothpaste on the brush when I brush my tongue, at least.

I have it on and off, it was a lot worse earlier in the pregnancy but it has not gone away completely. I make sure i lean over the sink and have the water running, wash my brush and spit a bunch so there is not much build up in my mouth.

yes! It was bad, then better, no worse again. It makes me gaggy and I have to take breaks often. Argh!

I'm right there with you. I'm still gagging and feeling sick every time I brush my teeth, and I have thrown up while brushing more than I'd like to remember. I hope it passes, too! I haven't dealt with this through past pregnancies, so I have nothing to compare it to for if/when it will let up.

Yes same hear espeically in the mornings. I must breakfast first but it still makes me gag! I went to dentist for cleaning and asked them and they said to at least try to brush w/toothbrush and just water. They also gave me kids toothpaste that is bubble gum and I have tried that and it seesm to be much much better than the mint toothpaste. Maybe try those to help you out.

Thanks for making me feel better ladies! Knowing I am not alone in the teeth brushing dept. is nice haha even though I dont wish that on any of you! I closed my eyes today while brushing and tried singing a song in my head to take my mind off of it Glad DH was already at work and my 2 year old DD wont laugh too hard at me. lol.
