  • My gums get realy unhealthy toward the middle of pregnancy. I dont' know about bleeding gums as an early sign, but I definately experience it later.

  • It can also be a sign of gingivitis. I would rely on a HPT before bleeding gums.

  • Mine didn't start bleeding until well into the third trimester. They aren't a sign of early pregnancy typically, but a later symptom. LOL@jademom...I agree...get a test.

  • My gums have went really sensitive since i got pregnant.
    I brush regularly, but i find myself having to use a soft brush because they bleed.
