grinding teeth?

Hey ladies. Here recently, I guess I have been grinding my teeth pretty bad in my sleep. I know that after I have my baby, I will have to get at least one tooth pulled from breaking.
What have you ladies done to stop the grinding? I keep waking up because my mouth hurts so bad from the grinding. :( I'm 31 weeks, and don't know how I'm going to deal with 9 more weeks of this pain.

You can get a sports mouth guard and boil it and mold it to fit your teeth and then wear it to bed. The dentist told me to do that for my Fiance instead of getting them made specially for him.

You can try a mouth guard while sleeping...I think they still sell them in stores!
