And I definitely dont want to go the rest of my 12 weeks with out brushing my teeth :/

  • Not heartburn but I would end up being really sick so if I was having one of those days I'd use mouthwash until later in the day then brush my teeth.....better than nothing hey!

  • When brushing my teeth during the 1st and 2nd trimester it would make me gag bad. I tried switching toothpaste too and it didn't work. I tried putting a small drop of toothpaste and that seemed to help me some.

  • Are you brushing your tongue in the back? I know I would brush my tongue and it would make me gag every time.
