Hi Tasha,

I also had the most awful taste in my mouth and it was embarrassing. My dentist recommended Corsodyl mouthwash and it really worked. I had no energy but this improved at 13 weeks. I don''t think you should worry about your sex drive, you are busy growing a baby and should not be under any extra pressure, plus it is uncomfortable, so give it up for now.

I was not ill, my husband was! So I can''t help you with the ill feelings, but I have heard it does improve in the 2nd trimester and is a sign of a healthy baby.

Hope you will be okay.
