Yup - Me too.
Sounds like it's driving you nuts like it's driving me nuts. I've been producing excessive saliva since week 6, and now in week 10, it's still going on. There seems to be no rhyme or reason as to when the saliva is more active - sometimes in the middle of the day, sometimes at night. I have to carry around tissues and napkins as well, or else you're swallowing your saliva the whole time, which causes you to intake excessive air and burp. (Which I seem to be doing more often anyway...)

My doctor reported that it is absolutely normal as well - all related to hormones of course, and there really isn't anything you *can* do about it.

For my part, I'm just REALLY hoping that this whole part of the physical symptoms will go away after a few more weeks. *crosses fingers*

Spitting during pregnancy
I have the same symptoms I drink more water taking small sips throughout the day and try little pieces of lime when you need through the day other women even try sunflower seeds. My spitting episode started at7 weeks and im at 10 and it is still going on. Some women are lucky enough to have it stop in the second trimester while others have it through the whole pregnancy or even 2-3 weeks after they have given birth

saliva
I am four months and i have noticed over the last 2 months excess saliva but it gets stuck in the back of my throat and if I don't hawk to get it out I start to choking really badly. I noticed that it's worse at night. I jump up out of my sleep in choking spells. Someone suggested warm/hot water with lemon or lime. I just know that I cannot wait for it to stop. I was also told that a b vitamin helps to reduce the production... have not tried this yet, I am still researching this.

I started spitting at week 6 and it is continuously until now which is week 8. I wish I could find something to end it. I work a full time job and no one knows I am with child. I do not what to share until the second trimesters. I just read fresh coffee in the mouth works. I plan on trying it. Anyone help

TOO MUCH SALIVA
I started spitting at three weeks of my pregnancy and this is driving me nuts. Now am two months and the spitting is even increasing. All they tell Me is that i have to carry on with it since its normal. Most of it i have low appetite for eating any thing. Once i eat food, i vomit after ten minutes. Am so tired even before the pregnancy becomes heavy. Am just calling on God to intervene.
