Well I'm at 14 weeks 2 days, and I still feel gross in the evening, I get a pastey mouth and just feel all round gross. I keep thinking I'm dehydrated so I try to drink lots of water but that doesn't help much. Just temporarily.

Anyone else having this? It sure isn't making pregnancy too fun. Hopefully it will pass soon!!!

<raises hand> Me me me!! I thought it was me, and I keep thinking it's dehydration too, but no matter how much I drink it doesn't seem to change it! I definitely don't remember this from last time.

I"ve got that too. AND when I'm pregnant, my body almost treats it like an allergy. SO I get sinus mucus really, really badly. So I'm constantly blowing my nose, and I have dry mouth. Sometimes if the mucus drops suddenly into the back of my throat, I'm puking!

Sorry, maybe too much info, but i'm having a nauseaus night and feeling really crappy. So finding this thread made me feel less alone.

Oh, yes. Plus I have a sour milk taste in my mouth constantly. Add that to the all-day nausea and I'd rather hibernate for the next few weeks (fingers crossed that it goes away soon.) Sucking on hard candy helps temporarily, as does drinking ice water.

Yuck yuck yuck.

I don't necessarily have a yucky taste in my mouth, but I hear you on evenings being the worst. I hardly ever eat dinner with the family anymore, I am lightheaded and tired, and end up resting on the couch. I get a dry mouth alot too.

Hey,

A friend of mine recommended lemonaide because it helped with her nausea during pregnancy. I swear it helps! I can't take a lot of sugar/honey because it gives me dry mouth, so the lemonaide is tart.

I'm about to make some tonight from scratch. But I've bought some for Chik-fil-A, and the Horizon brand premade lemonaide.

definitely getting the pasty/dry-mouth thing and dehydration overnight, no matter how much water i drink before bed or during the night. yuck! it wasn't like this last time for me either, i'm not sure if it's our bedroom setup (supplemental heater pointing towards me maybe making it extra dry?) or what, but even having a vaporizer running in there seems to not be making a dent in my dehydration. i've woken up with more headaches the past several weeks than ever before. aaagh!

Ditto on the headaches and night time dehydration. I keep a nalgene in the bed with me and I swear the water is nearly gone by morning!

Ok so the update is it's gotten better I'm almost at 15 weeks. I don't know if it's because of that or that I've totally cut out decaf coffee, that seems to make it worse, or any tea with caffeine like green tea or black tea.

I was getting wicked headaches too the last 2 weeks, so I started wearing my nightguard on my teeth at night and that helped a lot, I guess I was clenching my teeth at night.

Kind of off topic, but I used to love green tea, and stopped drinking it when I found out that I was pregnant because of something that I read in "What to Expect..." (which I've stopped reading by the way because I found it pretty patronizing and a bit too mainstream) I think it said something like the effects of green tea (and a lot of herbs for that matter) have not been proven, but it would be best to stay away from it.

That seems kind of weird to me because it's the only book I've ever seen that in???

My mw told me not to read that book because it talks about all the horrible things that can happen, and also because it's written by a lady who's had 3 kids. There's no research or anything behind the book and alot of false facts.

Rooibos tea is very good to drink in pregnancy.

Though I have read to stay away from many herbs, like Oregano oil, essential oils etc...

Two fo my friends sent me 'what to expect.." when I got pregnant with DS. I found myself so overwhelmed with all the "dangers" of pregnancy since my first pregnancy ended in miscarriage.

My labor doula gave me a book called, "Birthing from Within" which I love!! It was so empowering and informative and really the only book that I read that talked to the dad as a partner instead of "what you should be doing for your wife...do laundry, etc." KWIM?

Anyway, this time I"m working with a homebirth midwife and she's really the only birthing information that I'm relying on. She also has tons of informaitn for me.

Herbs: I'm working up to taking 6 capsules/day of alfalfa. It gives me more energy and it's supposed to help reduce the amount of blood loss during delivery (by mom).

I'm trying to like the pregnancy tea, but it's soo gross. I can't add sugar/honey because it makes my dry mouth worse. So for now, I made the tea into ice cubes and put them into my water so that I'm getting at least some of the good herbs for pregnancy.

How is everyone feeling? During the day I definitely feel more energy (13w4d), but at night, I still sometimes puke.

Hi...I realize this is an old post but it popped up on my desperate online search. What did you do to overcome your night time dehydration????

It feels just awful and also....it feels like I am going to die if I don't overcome this. I keep having to get up all night, it is increasingly exhausting me and the cycle is just vicious....I get SO DEHYDRATED that I take a sip or two but pee gallons....leading to worse dehydration. Doctor is at a loss so I am checking online and found yours.

Thanks for any help, if this even reaches you.

SKB

Hi and
I bet no one is reading this board anymore, because it's such an old DDC (due date club). Try posting on the "I'm Pregnant" board instead. You will probably get some input there. Good luck!
