I have noticed my skin is SO dry. I took a shower today and my scalp is so dry that I have dandruff

I also have a wonderful metallic taste in my mouth. I feel like I'm sucking on a bolt.

Anyone else with strange symptoms?

That is no good! I'm sorry!

You could switch from regular lotions to using EVOO as your moisturizer. I have ridiculously dry skin and even when I'm not pregnant I alternate between EVOO after showers and occasionally throughout the day and Cocoa Butter. Sometimes I can't stand the smell of the EVOO, especially the last few days, so I've gotten some essential oils to create smell good moisturizer!
Dry scalp - Try a tea tree shampoo... Paul Mitchell or you can get the generic from Sally's that is just as good!

I had the metallic taste thing when I first found out. It tasted like I was sucking on a penny and it made me so nauseaus lol.

I have had dry skin and stuff too so I take a bath at night and put a little baby oil in with the water to moisturize!

I have a ton of symptoms that are "normal" but uncommon--headaches, feeling SUPER hot all the time, night sweats, weird and incredibly vivid dreams, itchiness.. it sucks. Can't wait for this trimester to be over!!
