It's one thing to go off something, which I have experienced plenty during pregnancy, but has your sense of taste changed?
I've haven't experienced any crazy cravings, but all of a sudden pretty much as soon as I discovered I was expecting, I just couldn't stomach garlic.
As a once classically trained French chef, omitting garlic from my recipes during pregnancy has felt like a sin!! But needs must, garlic suddenly stays with me for days, leaves an awful metallic taste in my mouth that won't go, and lingers so long, I swear it gives me headaches.
It's all thanks to one of the lesser-known and slightly weirder pregnancy complaints called Dysgeusia.
Dysgeusia, or a change in your sense of taste, during pregnancy, according to research, is most likely caused by pregnancy hormones.
Hate the foods you normally love? Love the foods you usually hate, that's Dysgeusia, and it's also responsible for a sour or metallic taste in your mouth, even when you're not eating!
There isn't a cure. It's just one of those things we need to endure.
I've tried a few things which help, but sadly doesn't banish it
For some women, it disappears when your hormones start to settle, and for some women, it lasts the whole way through.
I'm 6-months and still avoiding garlic like the plague, it's in everything!
Have you experienced Dysgeusia?
