Metalic ? Nasty taste with everything I eat

Ok so NOTHING tastes like its supposed to ... I was so excited about some candy corn bought it opened it and it tastes like pennies ... UGHHH yuck ... anything sweet seems to taste that way.. Had a piece of gum yesterday and tasted like I was chewing a penny lol ... No marked Nausea .. Keeping fingers crossed with my son I was not sick at all felt completely normal most of pregnancy. I have a terrible stuffy nose which I also had with my son and lower back pain (I dont remember having that but its a dull ache in my back) Any other PG ladies have a back ache ?

Hmmm I have never had a metallic taste, but I think every woman has their own unique symptoms. I also didn't have any sickness with either of my previous two, so I am crossing my fingers that I am going to be that lucky this time too!

We have same due date Smile Im due June 2nd too ... I had a c-section with DS so not sure I may end up with a c-section around 38 weeks so may end up in May.

Was the candy corn stored in a metal container? I find the heightened sense of smell/taste effects a lot! We bought DD a wagon on Saturday and the smell coming off the thing is killing me. DH says it's the tires off-gassing.

I was never really sick with DD. I hope I don't get sick with this one. I don't like that idea...but at least I work from home this time so I'll only annoy DH with my puking.

I haven't had back pain but I do get the occasional cramps/tightness in my abdomen. I think that's implantation but who knows.

That is cool! I will likely by in May too, I had both of mine two weeks early. But you never can tell with babies!

My DD was due in early Feb but we had a c-section so she was in January. Being on the cusp like that kind of sucks. I'm hoping for a Vbac this time but if not I'll likely still be in June if my c-section is 10 days early like last time.

YAY for Spring babies! I can't wait for warm weather birthday parties!!!! I'm a Dec baby and DD is January.

**lurking from May 2013** I have a nasty taste in my mouth too but it's not metallic I guess.. it's just nasty lol Things taste bitter sometimes so I can't eat things I usually love, like balsamic vinaigrette on my salad. It sucks!!

My DS was due right in the middle of June, he missed being born in June by just a few hours. I was part of the June BB and I just stayed there.

Ya, I stayed on the Feb 2010 board even though DD was born in January. That's where my main friends were/are!

I've heard a lot of people have that. I never have personally. Sounds annoying!
