Anyone else get suddenly swollen gums in the third trimester?

I'm 35 weeks and for the past two days have notice that my gums are swollen. Not tender or anything, just swollen.

  • It's because there is so much more blood being pumped through your body. I haven't noticed extra swollen gums, but DEFINITELY extra swollen feet and even legs if I'm up too much.

  • I've been dreading brushing my teeth lately. LOL I think (hope) it's one of those pregnancy things that goes away!
