But I feel like every time I want to brush my teeth I am going to puke so I don't get as good of a job done. And the extra spit makes me gag too, I cannot count how many times I have drooled on myself while brushing my teeth!
Excuse me if my typing is bad There's probably a baby in my arms.
I think this first trimester is probably doing a number on them with the puking, the acid, the struggle to eat. I'm hoping to get in once I feel better - trying to wait til safely in the second trimester - and address any ASAP/ prevention stuff. I'm going to have to go regardless because the puking has loosened a filling towards the front.
I'm trying to get extra calcium whenever possible -Tums, milkshakes, whatever. I'm also using mouthwash all the time because I also don't feel like I'm able to brush as thoroughly due to gagging.

Yep! Not to worry you, but my last pregnancy ruined my teeth. I was excruciatingly ill until about half way though. I could not hold down food at all. The acid from the stomach can ruin the enamel on your teeth. I also have liver issues where it is difficult for me to store and make certain vitamins, couldn't keep down food, or prenatals, so baby was taking EVERYTHING as far as nutrition goes, from me. I still have some dental work that needs to be finished. I wouldn't be too worried about it since my situation was a little different. BUT, I would say to make sure you're put on Zofran or another medication for morning sickness if you cant hold down your food or brush your teeth! A lack of nutrition will affect your teeth!
