I'm not really sure how/if you can stop it... but I do think it can be normal because sometimes when you're pregnant one of the symptoms is excess saliva. I've heard of other women complaining of spitting when they talk and even drooling. :sheepish: So... I think it's normal... or can be. But I suppose you could as your doc... maybe there is way to help cut down on it all.

I only have this problem at night I will wake up with my mouth full of saliva and I'm sure as hell not going to swallow it, I have a trash can right next to my bed and I just spit in it.... Atleast twice a night, or I will get up and wash my mouth out with mouthwash... UGH I seem to always have a nasty taste in my mouth, sorry if TMI!! :sheepish:

chewing gum might help. It helped me with my first son. GL

Wow! i could have written this post. nothing and i mean NOTHING works! i have constant saliva and have to carry a paper cup with me in the car and at my desk at work and i sleep with a trash can right next to my bed too. i've tried gum which gets rid of the taste but only makes the saliva worse....i tried sucking on a lemon and sunflower seeds and even sour candy but it's a lost cause. i just pray to God it ends soon. Also, i'm expecting twins and this is my 3rd pregnancy. I had this saliva symptom with my son, but not this bad! :pbpt:

I feel I have consistently brush my teeth because of the all the extra saliva. I also feel that the saliva makes me more nauseated after eating. URG!!!! :angry:
