Ugh, I want to cry.

I had been planning on some fairly major dental work for a year before this unplanned (but exciting) pregnancy was discovered. Some of the work is time sensitive and I can't put it off any longer, so tomorrow morning I go in at 11AM for the first of two titanium metal implants I need. I will be 14 weeks and they are just going to give me a local anesthetic at the site, but the work requires drilling into my jaw bone and I am scared! I can't take anything afterwards for pain and I know I'm going to be hurting.

Did I mention that visits to the dentist office used to send me into panic attacks when I was younger so this would be a big deal even if I wasn't pregnant. I could use some positive thoughts...

AND all along I have been looking forward to learning the results of my MaterniT21 test that was taken two Wednesdays ago, but I still haven't heard anything from my Dr office. I called Friday (my birthday, just to try my luck) and they hadn't gotten the results yet. At least if I had some new info about baby's health, gender, whatever, I could use that as my happy place in the dental chair.

Not looking forward to tomorrow. Sniff...

I need to have a tooth taken out too - I have had sharp severe pains on a broken molar since week 6 of this pregnancy... I was so worried I wasn't going to make it into the 2nd trimester without needing it removed and that I would hurt the baby... I totally understand some of the fears you have. I hope everything goes well and the pain is minimal.

I had my 2 wisdom teeth taken out a couple years ago and I only used Novocaine. I was too scared to "go under". They made me watch this video about the major risks and also, my husband was deployed so I had to drive myself home afterward. I know my story is totally different, just hoping it'll give you a little peace and comfort. But anyway, had one tooth wiggled out, the other they had to cut up in there and find it. (They let me keep them!) But after, I had to drive across town, onto post and wait at the busy Army pharmacy. Didn't get my pain meds until about 2 hours after surgery. I was given Oxycodone. And was told it would give me relief and would make me so tired and out of it. Took some when I got home, put on sweats, got ready for a drug induced nap.....nope. No pain relief and a major energy spurt. I mowed the lawn and after, popped some ibuprofen for some relief. Ice packs helped more than anything and good trashy t.v. I know we can take tylenol while being pregnant. Just saying, it might be enough to take the edge off and leave ou feeling pretty comfortable. It might not be as bad as you think it will be.
