I know late during my pregnancy with Hailie my teeh started to bother me. The day before I was to be induced I cracked a tooth eating a pizza roll. Now Hailie is 19 months old, my teeth are giving me so many problems, which I never had before.. Thanks gitls..

  • i cracked a tooth on pizza in the hospital the day i was discharged with my son.. i had perfect teeth .. then after my 1st pregnancy i had to have a root canal, the chipped tooth filled and 3 more fillings! it was insane, i do think babies will suck the calcium outta your body (bones and teeth) i am pregs now for the second time and eating mad amounts of milk, yogert, icecream, oj with calcium, flossing, rinsing, brushing like mad... i will let you know if that helps but i hav eheard it from other moms that teeth issues after babies are more common.

  • Thanks AmaliaD. I was surely thinking it was just my imagination that my teeth were bad. I mean I have nice teeth and then lol I got pregnant. I appreciate what you said because I was just worried that no one else would be open enough to talk about such a touchy subject.. Thank you again...
