My gums had been starting to look puffy and bled often so I made a call. From reading different books I was terrified that problems with your teeth could lead to preterm labor. In general, I have been pretty stress-free about our pregnancy, but this issue worried me since I had noticed some changes with my gums.
The cleaning wasn't too bad, but there was so much blood. Nothing was uncomfortable, but my gums were very irritated. The general consensus was that I need to floss more. Pregnancy hormones along with my complete lack of flossing has made my gums super sensitive! My new routine: brush teeth, floss, and brush teeth again.
Since cutting caffeine out of my routine again, my teeth look great. I've even started using baking soda and they appear whiter. I guess they'll look even better if I keep flossing. =/
Sorry this was a random and boring post about my teeth. But to all of my pregnant readers: Remember to Floss! And this goes to all of the IF Ladies too; taking all of the added hormones.
