So I discovered the joy that is pregnancy gingivitis this week. It came on very suddenly after a nap on Wednesday and has been making its way across my gum line now.
I must say, I have been having flashbacks to a couple of months ago when my TTT included something about how the Rockies hate oral hygiene because toothpaste and mouthwash would reliably make me vomit. That has only recently subsided, but yeah....
Thankfully I have a relatively mild case. The dentist isn't super concerned and has recommended salt rinses plus some antiseptic mouthwash a couple times a day. If it gets worse he will prescribe a stronger one. Luckily I had a cleaning about 8 months ago so I am not super overdue for one....
All that said, this is so annoying! And painful! If anything scares me into flossing the rest of my life this will be it! I had no idea how irritating this relatively common pregnancy side-effect could be. Prevent it if you can!
