Metal taste

There's a link to a google search on causes.

It is actually normal for some pregnant women to have a metallic taste in their mouths. So no, it isn't in your head. I would suggest keeping mints around you at all times to at least mask the taste. Good luck!

It may be a vitamin deficiency
