Hello All!!! Im 23 wks pregnant with 2nd child. I had a dental procedure done last week and my gums were swollen from them making a feeling to long.. So pain pain pain... They were going to give tylenol 3 but im sticking with store bought to be safe. For a week straight Ive took 2 extra strength tylenols every 6 hrs and for 3 days been taking penicillin every six hours to get rid of infection. Im so scared that this can do something to the baby, how does this work with pregnancy. Does these medicines go through the baby as well. Im getting scared, the pain isnt letting up or Id quit. I dont want to do anything to hurt my baby. Thanks for any reply.

You need to read the piece of paper that came in the box (for both tablets). It will say if it is safe to take or not when pregnant. Some pills you cannot take, some you can, and some only during certain times of pregnancy, e.g. some only in the first tri, or second or third etc. Or some just say do not take if pregnant, and then they contradict them-selves by saying, but you can if you consult your doctor first. . . .If you told your dentist you were pregnant, then I am sure he/she would only prescribe the tablets if they were safe. I think it best for you to telephone your dentist (or your doctor) just to put your mind at rest, but being worried is not going to be good, and once you've spoken to the them, you'll soon stop worrying. . . . . (I'm 22 wks pregnant, and have taken 5 diff types of anti-biotics over the last 8 - 10 weeks or so. . . sometimes if the doctors say it is best to take them, we just have to choose ourselves if we wish to take the pills or not. It is up to us to decide, infection, pain, or vice-versa, no pills, but then a worse infection / pain etc). It is a personal choice.

You are fine...dentists, if they know you are pregnant know what they are doing for the most part. I had a tooth infection/root ca___l and was prescribed tylenol with codeine and amoxicillin. All is fine....

Yes of course the dentist knows that I am pregnant. It just worried me to be taking the tylenol for so long and was seeing if anyone else had a simular experience. I thought the infection and pain would subside by now. I still feel the lil fella rolling around in there so thats a good sign :) Thanks for everyones input, its very much appriciated.
