  • hey everyone,

    i'm going to be 9wks (hopefully, if i don't have a miscarriage) on monday. i've been having a really dry mouth and my mouth always tastes funny/weird. also, it seems like all the foods taste bland to me, i've been adding salt to almost all my foods. i'm constantly thirsty, which has its downsides because i'm always going to the bathroom, too. anyone else having these symptoms?

    i know everyone is different, but when did you notice your belly growing? all my pants are tight on me on the waist and i feel like it's already huge. it's also bigger at night than it is during the morning or day.

  • Even though I didn't have it, a funny/weird taste in your mouth is a common symptom of pregnancy. Sometimes a metallic taste.

    It also sounds like you're referring to the bloat of early pregnancy. Very common and it is definitely bigger/worse at night.

    It sounds like you have some very common signs of pregnancy and it sounds as if everything is going well.

    Congrats now enjoy!

  • I had that awful taste until about 12 weeks, I just chewed on mints when it got unbearable.

    My belly popped quite early, but with my first two I didn't show until 16-20 weeks. Soon you'll have a beautiful big round belly all the time!
