10 weeks pregnant mother

Question: I'm 10 wks pregnant and my mouth is always filling up with saliva. Is this normal? What can I do?

2 Answers
Answer: Its normal to experience excessive salivation as a result of changing hormone levels. Excessive saliva may happen sporadically during periods of rapid hormonal fluctuation like during the first and third trimesters. It can be relieved by over the counter antacids, or by drinking milk. Brushing teeth multiple times each day helps relieve salivation symptoms, or at the very least makes the problem seem less annoying. Drinking more water can improve rather than worsen the condition,as the body may produce more saliva in response to dehydration. You could also try chewing gum or sucking breath mints to take your mind off the problem. Excessive saliva production during pregnancy won't realistically harm you or your baby, no matter how annoying it may be!
