I tend to get REALLY tense and worn out while getting fillings (I've had lots of them, but I still get nervous). And I really just don't want to deal with it while pregnant. I worry about the chemicals involved. But I also like to get my teeth taken care of right away and I wonder if I'll really feel like doing this any time soon after birth. I'm afraid I'll completely forget/not care in the postpartum whirlwind and end up with a double root canal!
Anyone had fillings while pregnant? Any thoughts?

Are they silver fillings? If so, you should definitely, definitely NOT have them replaced while pregnant or breastfeeding.
Can you see a dentist schooled in the safe removal of amalgams if they simply must be replaced?
DS, 10/07. Allergies: peanut, egg, wheat. We've added dairy back in. And taken it back out again. It causes sandpaper skin with itchy patches and thrashing during sleep. Due w/ #2 late April, 2012.
