It's not the "metallic" taste that I've heard a lot of people get, it's just a BAD taste. Like morning breath ALL THE TIME, gross! I have been brushing my teeth and using mouthwash all through the day but it doesn't help. I don't know if I just have especially sensitive taste buds or what. Food all tastes normal as of now though.

??? Anyone else?

It's probably acid reflux. You don't have to have heartburn to have some excess acid, and excess acid is pretty typical for pregnancy. I have this every time I take antibiotics, it drives me nuts. Tums and zantac are both safe in pregnancy. Tums has a bonus in that it gives you some extra calcium.

Don't know why I didn't think of acid reflux as the culprit. I've got it, normally take meds to control it but stopped when I found out I was pregnant. Duh!

I've been taking prenatals for about 3 years, so nothing's changed there.

Thanks!

Talk with your doctor, but Zantac is safe during pregnancy. I took it to begin with, but a lot of the moms in my DDC ended up taking it in the third trimester when the hellish reflux shows up.

I'm still taking my Rx antacid. Doctor told me to keep taking it during my last pregnancy and actually doubled the dose when things got bad third trimester.

I have been taking Zantac but only on a very as-needed basis. My doc prescribed Nexium in my 3rd tri last time, I'd like to make it that far again but we'll see.

Ugh, I have had the same nasty taste. Didn't think about it being reflux :-( I hate my acid reflux.
