Sweets...

I am craving them like crazy!! Only problem is after I eat anything with sugar..even sauces (think teriyaki sauce tonight) my mouth feels metallic and so gross I can't stand it! Anyone else having this issue or is it just me? It's probably ok for me to just not eat the sweets, but dang I am craving them so bad these last few weeks!

Yep--I used to LOVE swedish fish, and I haven't been able to eat them because of the nasty taste it leaves in my mouth! The only thing that helps is chewing gum or brushing my teeth and tongue right afterwards.

I had the metallic taste in my mouth in the early weeks. Ice cold water or citrus of some sort seemed to help. As for sweets, strangely this time I don't really want them. My daughter had her 10th birthday and party last week and we still have leftover ice cream cake and cupcakes and I want nothing to do with them. I did have a small bowl of ice cream the other night and that was the first time this entire pregnancy. My craving is spicy food, especially salsa. I can't get enough.

I get the metallic taste, but it's generally about 30 minutes after I eat anything. I usually follow meals with a big glass of water and that typically helps with it.

i have a big ole bag of Nibs in my drawer at work, so I hear you about craving sweets. But to only have 2 or 3 a day, been replacing it with fruit as much as I can.

Isn't the old wives tale, craving sweets your having a girl???

Glad to know I'm not the only one with the horrible aftertaste. Definitely makes me think before eating candy though so I guess that's a good thing!

Jbaum2- I was just thinking about the gender aspect. Except for me it was the opposite. With DS I craved junk food all the time...ended up making me gain 40+ lbs I didn't need to gain! With DD I craved veggies. This time I am so mixed up because I am having both cravings like crazy. We will find out next Friday which it is for me!
