I am just curious, I have been getting bleeding gums recently when I brush my teeth, does anyone know what I am lacking in my diet???

poor girl, preggo are you? not lacking anything in your diet, just an overabundance of hormones. my gums bled so badly that i thought i would bleed to death. brush, brush, brush, and rinse with non-alcoholic mouthwash or salt water. might mention it to your doc too.

I appreciate the info, and will try that......

I just went to the dentist yesterday and he warned me that this may happen. It's referred to as "pregnancy gingivitis." He said it's important to brush the sensitive areas, even though it will hurt a little, because any infections that occur can be pa__sed to the placenta. It's nothing uncommon, but as 'yuck' suggested, you may want to mention it to the doc just as a precaution.

ask your dentist about glyoxide. i had the worst gums and he gave it to me to help with infections
