  • Yes your gums will bleed a lot more during pregnancy and you can also get tooth pain, you have to floss a lot more to keep the bacterial out of your bloodstream so it won't hurt the baby.

  • My gums sometimes bleed when I brush my teeth, but you are saying "gums pouring blood". Are you exaggerating or serious? If you are serious I would talk to my doctor if I were you.

  • You are carrying extra fluids to support the baby so yes it is normal.
