I know its normal for your gums to bleed some during pregnancy...but dang!!!!

I just brushed my teeth again a minute ago and it was TONS of bleeding...my toothpaste and toothbrush were both VERY VERY pink.

Is that weird or what?

  • I didn't realize this was a symptom/side effect of pregnancy...I'm curious as to when this is supposed to start (if it does...I know not all women have every symptom)???
