bleeding gums

Has anyone during their pregnancy had problems with bleeding and swelling gums? I have always had great teeth and gums, but here lately it has been rough. I have swapped to a soft brush and toothpaste with gum protection. My gums are so sore. Any advice?

I would make an appointment with the dentist. Mine told me if I had any issues with my teeth or gums during this pregnancy to give them a call so they can monitor and keep everything healthy.

That's normal for pregnancy. Just make sure you are taking extra care of your teeth. Maybe book a cleaning at the dentist if it's been about a year since your last. Also make sure that you are getting lots of calcium to help your teeth stay strong

Swollen and bleeding gums is normal during pregnancy due to the extra/stronger blood flow in your body.
Let your doctor know and just keep an eye on it incase of any infections :)
