My jaw cracks more then usual when chewing but I think its the weather changing not due to being pregnant. My gums are super sore and sensitive which I know is from being pregnant

It is definitely pregnancy related lol teeth and gums get more sensitive and also a hormone called relaxin is released causing pain in most joints (jaw) talk to your dr about it

I've had this problem too and I've heard that it could also be related to stress. You tend to get more stressed when pregnant because of all the changes and I clench my jaw at night and the more stress you have the more you clench. You can get a mouth guard at Walmart for a few bucks and you just wear it when you go to bed and it really helps!
