Any reason not to? I was before pregnancy & saw some results with my skin & teeth. Now that I'm not nauseous anymore I'd like to resume. Anyone know about oil pulling while pregnant? It's detoxing, but you'd think if it goes out through the mouth, it doesn't get a chance to get to the baby.

I've never heard of this...I think I'll sub to see if I can find out exactly what it is.

From reading what you wrote, I'd wonder two things - can anything be inhaled & can anything that sits in your mouth, even just a little bit, be absorbed into your bloodstream.

Baby the babies while they're babies so they don't need babying for a lifetime.

I've never heard of oil pulling until your post! Sounds interesting! No idea about the safety during pg though!

Subbing.

I know what it is but I have no idea about doing it in pregnancy. I would definitely assume it's better than other kinds of cleansing in terms of fetal safety, but it's an assumption.

It made my skin clearer, and skin issues seem to be part of this pregnancy. I'd love to swish them away!

I looked it up online and can't really think of a reason why it would be bad during pregnancy. Of course, I just found out what it is...

There's a certain person I'll point to this thread, to get her insight. She's pulled for some time, I believe. I had just started when I found out I was pregnant too and had to stop because of nausea/vomiting and was considering starting again myself, so I'd like to know too.
