I just...

broke a tooth. First time ever. I was flossing and a chunk popped out. I haven't even eaten anything really hard recently.

I've actually had trouble with this tooth for the past couple of years, but it's not like I thought it would break. I got a cavity filled when I lived in Oregon and ever since then I get things caught between that tooth and the one next to it. Never did before. It doesn't hurt thankfully, but I need to make an appointment soon.

Happily, Medicaid covers dental for pregnant women.

I had to suddenly have a tooth pulled while I was pregnant. Bizarre. Anyway, ever since, I keep hearing stories from pregnant women and their teeth... there's an old wives tale about losing a tooth for every child because they're using the calcium as building blocks... maybe there's something to it?

(I originally wrote "building blogs" instead of blocks. Yes, your baby is a computer genius already, feverishly typing up his observations of your uterus.)

heh, that made me laugh, Laurie. I can imagine that baby taking notes. So glad he/she won't remember this!

I haven't heard about losing teeth, but the whole calcium thing is why medicaid covers dental. I'm okay with that though because I would never have dental work otherwise.

Yes, it is a fact that the baby is leeching calcium from you....so take more of it dangit!!! I am glad the broken tooth isn't painful and glad that you have the coverage to get it fixed!
I have a cracked tooth, and I have coverage...but I haven't gone in to get it fixed, cuz' it doesn't hurt...geesh...I'm one to talk, aren't I?

I have heard your teeth are defintely weaker during your pregnancies and that you are more cavity prone as well.
