Brush your teeth and notice blood when you spat out? Bleeding gums can become a regular occurence during pregnancy and you may feel concerned.
Don’t panic because symptoms with your gums and teeth should only last during pregnancy and return to normal postpartum.
Do make sure you take good care of your mouth hygiene and dental health during pregnancy.
Some women experience dry mouth symptoms due to less saliva being produced (see more information around this under Thirst).
Did you ever hear the old wive’s tale that you loose a tooth with each child? This may well have been true in the past, before we learned more about the importance of good oral hygiene.
