Wow!! this is the first forum i have seen on ptyalism after looking all throughout both my pregnancys for answers to this horrible pregnancy symptom. i had excess saliva for the whole 9 months of my first pregnancy. disappeared as soon as i gave birth. i've just had my second and although a little lesser, i am waiting for the saliva to disappear now 5 days after delivery. i've had 2 girls and suffered equally with this in each pregnancy. and as i have read on here, nobody understands unless they have lived with this. absolutely debilitating to social and work life. i have a twin sister and we both suffered through pregnancy with this. i think i wont have a 3rd, i suffered so bad with this. amazing just to have stumbled upon this thread and hang in there to all you tough mummys to be coping with this!

Hi .. everyone. well welcome to the land of spits , yes i spit with all 3 of my children and hated it , i was depressed all the time and couldn't enjoy being pregnant because of it. my spits lasted the whole 9 months.when it does it stop you ask ? well i have learned its different with each pregnancy. after my first it last 2 weeks weeks and stopped .. after baby 2 it last 3 weeks stopped n came back occasionally til my baby was 5 months old .. now i just had my last one and he's almost 3 months and im still spitting and have never stopped .. wish me luck i dont know what to do. and the sex of the baby doesnt matter i have 2 boys and 1 girl and spit with all of them .

I had the spitting in my first pregnancy and i thought i was going to die. it eased up around six months. i tried the chinese plum sweet it tasted bad but it dried up things a bit. i am now in my 2nd pregnancy and spitting again so i tried eating the orange pulp by keeping it in my mouth for even an hour it helps. still hate the spitting.

Hi i am pregnant with my second baby and the spitting is back! with my 1st pregnancy i spit the whole term. i stop spitting two days after birth, once i left the hospital the spitting was gone. i'm 18 weeks now and i still spit. i have to carry a cup. its grose but its of way of pregnancy. my baby was worth the misery for 38 weeks and i'm looking forward to this new baby. good luck to all! and you're not alone.

not so sure Nov 24, 2010 04:49:24 AM ET

Im having this problem, it sucks so bad i have to spit some times because its so bad.. drinking fluids doesnt make it go away and at night time its the worst.. im not suree if im pregnant . i have been having soo many symptoms, i dont want to be pregnant, but if it happens i would be excited. lets just say i havent been tryin to concieve.. so im not having pregnancy brain and making myself feel like im having symptoms alot of things have been changing about me that im just noticing. boobs bigger, nausea , hiccups more often, constantly hungry but sometimes feeling too nauseous to want to look for something to eat, heartburn, excessive saliva and swallowing it makes me wanna puke,sometimes could sleep all day and other times insomnia , been more bitchy lately, constantly thirsty.. extremely thirsty lol and idk is this a strange enough symmptom to say on top of all the other symptoms im pregnant? i cant get a pt till next month and im probably right at 9 weeks if i am . i just need someone to talk to about this, any comments would help.

I have had pytalism since 11 weeks i am now 26 weeks and it still isn't going away it is so terrible no matter what i do it doesn't go away.the only time i don't spit is when i eat. my doctor told me it might last a month after giving birth. and i wanted to see if there is anyone tht has had it passed childbirth!

I too am suffering from this nasty condition along with having hg, and the mucusy stuff in my throat all the time that makes me gag and puke. i can't bring myself to carry around spit containers- the thought makes me want to puke more-so i use full size towels; i wash a full load of towels every other day. i'm taking sublingual zofran but it only minimizes my nausea, makes me drowsy, and sometimes gives me a headache. i even tried the "premabella" wrist band and it didn't do anything. i go back to work in 3 wks: teaching, how am i going to spit and teach? and how come i never heard of this before becoming pregnate-it's nowhere in any of those pregnancy books!
