  • Its normal. Some women get it and some dont. If you want to be super safe about it just ask your doctor to test your iron levels in your blood.

  • Its called Dysgeusia. Its normal during pregnancy from what I hear. You can ask your doctor if you are concerned though

  • That will go away later in pregnancy. For me that metal taste lasted until about week 17.

    Chewing gum helps a lot. The flavor that helped me the most was cinnamon.
