    @ohhbitty:  No idea. Maybe, maybe not….I figure you have a 50/50 shot of being pregnant. 🙂 Only way to know is test, so I voted for test in the AM!

    I get a metal taste in my mouth once every few months…no idea why. I am positive I am not pregnant though.

    I say wait until you are actually late. otherwise you’re possibly psyching yourself up over one random symptom

    @ohhbitty:  this happens to me every month 

    wait until you’re late but if you are super worked up then I say you should take a test to ease your mind. don’t get too excited/stressed because that could push back your period or make you get another “symptom”

    I’ve had that taste without being pregnant. I’d wait.

    I have the metallic taste now and I’m 14.5 weeks along– I didn’t get it until I was about 8 weeks along, but it’s definitely one of the early signs of pregnancy. Testing early may shatter your dreams, just a warning! There is a high risk of false negatives and false positives when you test early. I tested 6 days before my missed period and got a negative, then tested the day my period was due and got an immediate, super dark, super positive!

    @ohhbitty:  I got that metal taste in my mouth this month along with a couple of other symptoms. Turned out to be an early chemical pregnancy. Hazard of testing early is finding out about these. Do you know when you Od? I’d wait until at least 11 days past o so you can be more sure. Do you have other symptoms?

    @ohhbitty:  Wait until you’re late to test! BUT the nasty metallic taste in my mouth was the first symtom I had 🙂
