So, lately my gums have been crazy sensitive. Normally, I am insane with keeping my teeth clean, brushing/flossing/mouthwash, the whole nine.

Well the last 3 weeks or so, my gums have been so stinking sore and bleeding at the drop of a hat. I have now been only able to floss every other day because they are so sore.

I called the dentist and I had an appointment this morning. I explained all of the things that have been happening and they started to do just a regular cleaning. The hygienist, who has been seeing me for about 4 years now, said that she could not believe how inflamed and prone to bleeding they were in comparison to my last visit.

The dentist came to have a look and said that I definitely have hormonal gingivitis. He suggested that I go by a water pick to replace flossing because of how poor my gums looked.

Anyone else having weird dental issues?

My gums have always bled during my pregnancies, along with my nose. My hygienist and dentist were never concerned about it. They called it pregnancy induced gingivitis which they assured me is completely different that gingivitis in a non-pregnant person, as well as completely normal and very common. Any sensitivity and bleeding I had went away after giving birth, and my dentist has always confirmed no lasting effects from it after pregnancy. It's just one of the many joys of pregnancy. As much as it sucks, it'll go away in a few months...just be as gentle as you can and continue to take care of your teeth. If you;re having sensitivity, my dentist has recommended using Sensodyne while pregnant and it really did help a lot.
