Tongue Feels Weird - May Be Pregnant
My DH and I have been going through fertility treatments to get pregnant. We may have acheived our goal, but we are not sure as of yet. I was wondering if any other woman had experienced what feels like a slick tongue and a film in the mouth while pregnant. I am bloated, my breasts are swollen, and I have been having nausea. Today, my mouth started having these weird feelings.
I don't want to get my hopes up too high as of yet, but I wanted to know if anyone had experienced this.
Thank you for your advice in advance!

With both pregnancies (first w/help, second without), everything tasted funny to me. It was almost a metal taste in my mouth. Things I loved to eat or drink suddenly tasted awful to me (this symptom was before my missed period with my second who had much higher hcg level).
Good luck to you, I know how difficult it is to go through fertility treatments. It is all worth it in the end. I'll keep you in my prayers that you will be pregnant soon.

My first clue to my only pregnancy was that my breasts were HUGE and extremely tender. If your symptoms persist for a few days, I'd take a pregnancy test. I didn't take one for over 2 weeks because I just KNEW I just couldn't be pregnant!! Heee...
Anyway, I hope you've achieved your goal!

Are you late or about to have your period?
The nausea is not a pms symptom. I would see about
getting a pregnancy test, and if it is negative, then
your fertility method is having a side affect that is
not pleasant. *nausea*.

Did you use Lupron in your fertility treatment? In my last round of treatments, I used Lupron and that was the one that worked. I had similar symptoms as you as far as the mouth thing was concerned. I also had a week or so where everything had a very metallic taste. Good luck!
