    Totally normal, apparently something to do with fluctuating levels of oestrogen. Some people think some prenatal vitamins can make it worse too.
    I've found sucking mints or fruity sweets helps it.x

    I had this the whole way through my first pregnancy and it drove me nuts. I found the only thing that really took it away was sucking ice cubes! I went through hundreds of he things,lol!
