Embarassing Pregnancy Dr. Questions

So I have a couple that I will ask my doctor on Monday, one that DH thinks is silly but I want to get the official answer is, "is it okay to use mouth wash while pregnant?" It does has some alcohol in it, and I don't want to take any chances. Besides that I've a lot muscle cramping belly button down, but no bleeding. So that's another question to ask my doctor. This is a completely different pregnancy than my first one (in my first pregnancy, I felt nothing, absolutely nothing).

 

Anyone else have embarrassing questions for their DR.?

    My doctor told me in the first visit that there is very little he hasn't heard in his time practicing. Those don't seem too embarrassing at all. I would rather ask and know than question it for months.

    This.

    And cramps are totally normal! I've had TONS of cramps... as long as you're not cramping and spotting/bleeding, it's fine!

    and if you're afraid you might swallow a little, try alcohol free. I already used that pre-pregnancy, listerine has one, also bactine, there are a few.

    no question is embarassing for your doctor if it gives you peace of mind.

    Also, mouth wash is fine. As a pp mentioned, good oral health is important for the health of your baby.

    Lower abdominal cramping is also completely normal. It's your uterus stretching.
