But about three weeks ago, this just got awful.
There is a spot on the lower left side of my mouth where my tooth and gums hurt SO bad.
I can't chew on that side, I can't sleep, I am living on tylenol. I am up at 3:00 a.m. posting about it because it's keeping me awake.
I went to the dentist a few days ago. I am due early in Nov, and he said it is just pregnancy gingivitis. He doesn't want to take an x-ray or really do anything until after I have the baby, but he admitted the tooth might need a root canal soon.
I cannot live like this for another month or so, then go for six weeks (because I can't have a major dental thing with a newborn, while bleeding from birth, etc!), just to see what is wrong... when all the while it gets worse!
He did give me a few days worth of a special mouthwash that is not helping at all.
What do you think? Has anyone else had really bad "pregnancy gingivitis" that was severely painful and kept them from sleeping and eating?
