bleeding gums...

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
anyone have increased gum bleeding later in pregnancy? i had it early on but it diminished to almost nothing for months. i know they say it's related to high hormone levels (is it the progesterone or estrogen? or both?). these last few days, though, it's started back up with a vengeance! i don't remember this with my previous pregnancies.....

Just the other day this started up again. I think it's estrogen. I didnt' have a re-surge in my last pregnancy, but this one for sure. They are also a little tender.

yeah, me too, and I also had some EWCM so it's all related to hormone surges.

as i was brushing my teeth last night & spitting blood tinged toothpaste i kept thinking that this was a sign that labor was imminent! everything is a potential sign these days!
