It's very important to have that checked out. The infection from the tooth can travel into your blood steam and into your heart. Never take toothaches lightly, especially if you can't move your neck/head. Pregnant women are more prone to gum disease and infections. Make sure to also have one dental cleaning during your pregnancy. I paid for mine out of pocket, only cost $30 without xrays etc.
