  • Yes I have gotten a tooth pulled while I was pregnant. I would wait. I was 30 weeks pregnant and had high blood pressure. I was on medication for blood pressure. I am deathly scared of the dentist in the first place. I felt like I was going to have a heart attack. No lie!! I was so scared and I could feel everything. They couldn't numb it very much and it hurt. My baby started kicking and my blood pressure went up high again and I was on medication. I was so glad that it was over! My dentist said I can't believe you can't take this when you are fixing to have a baby. I had already had one baby and I said that I would rather give birth 10 times than get a tooth pulled.
