Excess Saliva

Feb 05, 2011 No Comments by

It may not be cool to drool (especially in public), but for many women in first trimester, it’s an icky fact of life. Overproduction of saliva is a common—and unpleasant—symptom of pregnancy, especially among morning sickness sufferers. And though all that extra saliva pooling in your mouth may add to your queasiness—and lead to a gaggy feeling when you eat—it’s completely harmless, and thankfully short lived, usually disappearing after the first few months.

Spitting mad about all that spit? Brushing your teeth frequently with a minty toothpaste, rinsing with a minty mouthwash, or chewing sugarless gum can help dry things up a bit.
