  • it will be fine. i had 2 fillings done when i was pregnant with my third child. did you call the dentist and tell them that you're pregnant? sometimes they require a note from your ob. they will be careful and give you lots of aprons in case you need an x-ray. don't worry....stress is not good for the baby, so try to just go with the flow. gl....you'll be fine.

  • I feel you I just had two teeth pulled today and I was scared... but I think it is better than hurting or infection...
