Pregnancy is a magical, beautiful journey filled with joy and … oh heck, I can’t finish that sentence with a straight face!! I love being pregnant and I am thrilled to pieces just about every moment… but what the HECK is up with the drooling?! I am managing the morning sickness and I survived 2 weeks of insomnia, and don’t get me started on the painful boob thing – but all of these I have had before in my previous pregnancies, I knew they were coming and wasn’t surprised when they arrived right on “schedule”. But I will tell you, waking up in the middle of the night in a puddle of my own drool is something I did not expect and frankly had never heard of before! Imagine my surprise when I found out that it is perfectly normal! Yippee! I’m normal! Normal and soggy…

So far it seems to be mostly at night, so it doesn’t interfere during the day, but I’ve read a few stories of some poor women that have needed to carry around a “spittoon” everywhere they go because the have to spit so much! Ack!

The good news is this symptom is supposed to pass, usually around the second trimester. We’ll see….
