Yes!  Apparently it's called dysgeusia and is a pregnancy symptom.   It is driving me nuts!  If you can stomach it, I've been finding sour or tart things helpful like lemonade,green apples, or sour candies.  I know I shouldn't but somehow it seems like mountain dew slurpees help and it lingers in your mouth longer than a runnier drink!  Hope it improves, I know how annoying it can be.
