Choking on your own saliva???? Amy McClellan Due November 13 (boy); Ontario 8 posts

This is strange and I actually found some postings on other sites of this happening. This is my first pregnancy, I am 33 weeks. I have never had this happen till my pregnancy.
In the middle of the night, I wake up choking on my own saliva! If goes down the wrong tube and I get in such a coughing fit surely it wakes up my poor baby too lol. I was just wondering if this is a problem for anyone else? I hope it goes away after the baby is born! ::?

Are you sure it isn't acid reflux? SO wakes up drowning in it.

You've never done that? It sucks. LOL. You were probably just salivating a lot at the time and inhaled suddenly.

No I don't believe so as it only happens when I am sleeping and it's not like I eat much or drink much before bed. I literally can feel my own spit slide down into my lungs.

I know when you are pregnant you produce more saliva. I have never choked on mine but I notice when I talk I can sometimes see myself have spit spray out and it is so embarrassing and I also drool when I am laying on my side. It should go away after pregnancy or I sure hope it does....lol

Sometimes my DH wakes up like that. He went to a Dr. for it and wanted to do a sleep study on him for sleep apnea.
