Pregnant and Braces

I am in my 30's and had adult braces for a while. I went to the dentist today and he said that they are still misaligned and I could put them back on for 3-6 months if I want to make them perfect. He said that it wouldn't harm the pregancy. Do you think a pregnant woman looks wierd with adult braces? I'm really self consious!

  • I don't think anyone looks weird with braces, especially a pregnant woman. Pregnant women are beautiful and braces can't take that beauty away.

  • Well, I was pregnant with braces. But I wasnt an adult I was a teen.
    I think that people are so preoccupied with your belly that they dont even notice and I am so proud of my teeth now that I let the orthodotist make them perfect. I would keep the braces. Do other things to make yourself feel pretty!
    Get a manicure/pedicure.
    Get your hair done.
    But pretty manternity clothes to flaunt your belly.
    If you dont notice the braces no one else will either.

  • Who realy cares what they think,just think in a few months they will be gone! As I was growing up this is what I heard if someone made front of you for something, like I can take my braces off but you can't take ugly off LOL
