Sore mouth (teeth & gums)

OUCH! Yesterday & today I have been dealing with an awfully sore mouth! It even woke me up last night! Did anyone else deal with this? I have read that it is pretty common in pregnancy. I hate it.  


Any remedies that you did that helped? I am >>this close<< to being on a liquid diet :(

I didnt have any pain in my teeth or gums, but my gums would bleed a lot easier when I flossed and brushed.  It sucks you have to deal with the pain!

I had certain areas on my gums get sensitive and swell pretty bad at times - I was convinced I had cavities!  I started flossing and using mouth wash twice a day which helped the sensitivity, and then it just went away!  Another temporary pregnancy mystery.

Ouch, I'm sorry :-( I have bled almost every day when brushing for the last several weeks, but not really any pain. Occasionally I have a day where my gums will be tender, but mostly just the bleeding. I like Murph's milkshake idea, though :-D

Oh what a bummer you have to deal with that! I haven't really had that problem, there's only been a few times when I've bled a little when brushing but that's it. Not sure what will relieve the pain but I hope it passes soon!

Seems like it was just a bad couple of days... I am feeling better, but not 100% ready to eat ribs or anything. I did have myself a milkshake though & it was AMAZING. I am going to take @haleigh's advice & double up on the mouth wash & floss. It is strange, because I have always had healthy gum & teeth, so I literally feel like I am a pre-teen with braces (that is how sore they were/are)!
