Early pregnancy sign?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

So this is my first month trying and we did O+12 trying for a girl. I am 2 days past ovulation now and I have a really strong metallic taste in my mouth today. I woke up with it, so it's nothing I ate and I'm not on any meds. I know that this is a symptom of pregnancy, but I'm trying really hard not to get my hopes up too high. I think I'm failing. LOL! I didn't have the taste with my boys, so I'm making myself crazy thinking that if I AM pregnant, that maybe it means girl.

 

Sigh. This is going to be a long 10 days till I can test, and if positive, a really long 20 weeks before I can find out if I finally will have a daughter that I want so badly that it hurts. lol

 

Anyone else have the metallic taste in early pregnancy? When did you get it? What sex did you end up having?

I can't remember the exact details of everything that happened to me early in pregnancy, but I pretty much got every symptom possible (except vomiting) plus above and beyond what most experience (I felt implantation very strongly, had severe mood swings before I even had a positive test, etc). I'm pretty sure I had a metallic taste in my mouth, or just a weird taste like something was different... Everything tasted differently to me very quickly. My sense of smell followed suit too. I remember complaining to my husband about it. I don't have an exact time frame of when it happened to share with you, though. Sorry! But lo-and-behold, I am pregnant with a girl!

 

Good luck! winky.gif

What do you mean, 0+12? I thought the shettles method you BD like 3 or 4 days before O and then stop... what's the 12?

 

Anyways. With DS I did have a moment of metalic taste but it didn't last. And IDidn't have it with my other 3 pgs....

I hope you get your positive test!

 

I didn't have the metallic taste in my mouth as an early sign; however, I had the metallic taste (well, honestly, I don't know that I would say it's metallic, but it's disgusting, lingering, and made me really queasy) throughout the first trimester.  I don't know the gender of this baby and won't find out until birth.  I didn't sway.  I can say, I didn't have that taste with my baby boy.  shrug.gif

I think the 0+12 is a method for conceiving a girl that came out of a New Zealand study suggesting you should have sex 12 hours after you ovulate.  Perhaps the OP could elaborate and/or correct that, though.  I believe I read about it on another messageboard, in-gender.com.

Yes, that is what it is. You figure out when you ovulated, then BD 8-20 hours after. I tried Shettles with my second BOY, so I thought I'd try this this time! lol I did the opposite of everything I did to get my 2 boys this time. lol
