Anyone else ever lost a tooth due to pregnancy?

Or is it an old wives tale? I know it sounds stupid but I'm gonna have to get my back tooth pulled after my baby comes out...

  • Yes, my teeth got really bad after I had my first. I had to have two cavities filled and had to have one pulled. After my second I had to have another one pulled. :(

  • Nope, but I got my 1st cavity when I was pregnant with my 3rd child at 41 due to having constant heartburn.

  • If you dont get enough calcium supplements anything can happen. Pregnancy will literally suck the calcium right out of your teeth. Losing a tooth like a kid is redic but losing it to decay or lack of vitamins is always possible

  • I had one pulled during my first pregnancy, but I'd had problems with it for years prior to getting pregnant.
