I am 10 weeks preg. and this is not my first pregnancy, but this saliva build up is driving me nuts. i see that no one really has a safe/sure cure for it so i pray that it ends by my 3rd or 4th month. good luck to everyone on this irritating symptom.

I've been spitting too since i turned 4 5weeks and at the moment i am 12weeks gone, someone just told me today to swirl bitter-kola in my mouth instead of mints, sweets, etc. i'm just doing that annd trust me, it is working. it keeps the saliva back and i am so grateful to her. i'm from nigeria and don't know if bitter-kola is available everywhere. try it, it's working.

Hello! i am 6 weeks pregnant and have been suffering with this excessive spit since i turned 6 weeks. i am pregnant with my second child and yes i did go through this with the first. it is in deed the excessive spit that causes the nausea. i have an appt. coming up in the 24th and will speak with my docotr about getting some meds to help me with this. i deal with people and are directly in contact with them. i have to keep a spit cup under my desk while i am at work. someone please give me hope that there is indeed a cure for this madness.
