  • Its perfectly safe, you can take Tylenol but nothing else since you are preggers. Other than that you can still take your prenatal every day, drink non red juices, milk, water and eat soft foods like mashed potaotes, yougurt, smoothies and steamed veggies.

    Besides, if you were that worried, why did you have it pulled?

    The problem with teeth is people don't realize just how dangerous they can be and I promise your baby would of been in more harm with it still in, if the infection would of entered your blood stream it could of gone up into your brain or down to the baby. How is that safe?
