Did anyone else have sore gums/teeth early in pregnancy? I have never had a problem with either but in the last week my gums are swollen and my teeth/gums are just very tender! I know they say circulation etc. increases in pregnancy and I wasn't sure if this could have anything to do with it.

I didn't have issues with that but I do know it is normal.

Thanks--I don't remember it being a problem with my first but that was nearly 3 years ago now (hard to believe) and I know every pregnancy is different.

yea...there are so many changes that can occur even eye sight. I had to have mine checked with this pregnancy (number 3) and it did change...not drastically but to the point I had to change my prescription. it is crazy how pregnancy can change all sorts of things.

Yes. Omg mine hurt alot more & they will bleed randomly or when I brush my teeth now, Before I got pregnant they never bled or hurt this bad. I cant eat nothing cold hardly now and it kills me cause all I want is ice cream. Lol hopefully when I have the baby it will go away. (I am 6 months the 29th!)

Yes! Mine are still tender and I'm 24 weeks. My dentist said its normal. Just to be very gentle while brushing and flossing but to make sure you are twice a day.

Totally normal! I went to the dentist because i was worried my teeth/gums are always sore and bleeding when i brush and floss and they said its just all the horomonal changes.

So glad it's normal...I had almost no pregnancy issues with my DD but geesh I'm barely pregnant this time around and I'm getting my butt kicked by a fetus.
