I have to have a root canal tomorrow and I'm pretty worried about it and the effects on baby. I do know it will just be local anesthetic and my ob has given a note saying what they can and cannot use but I'm still really worried, because of the recurrent pregnancy losses I think that makes my anxiety worse.. I wouldn't even be doing this if I didn't have to! Ugh.. Any experience or words of encouragement is greatly appreciated!!!

Pink I had to have a lot of dental work done with DD2 at all stages of pregnancy My OB said it was fine as long as they didn't have to put me under. I did ask them to use as low doses as possible (not very possible, I have super sensitive mouth that takes FOREVER to be numb) just because it made me feel better. it's always nerve wracking when you've experienced losses

Good luck today, Pink. Root canals are definitely not fun. I'm glad your OB is sending a note. That is extra reassurance.

As for our son, "Baby T" we lost him last year when I went into labor at 16 weeks. I started spotting at 8 weeks. By 13 weeks I was passing clots every week. The OB finally found a large subchorionic hemorrhage on my uterus and told me to take it easy. Usually they go away on their own by 20 weeks. But, mine just kept getting bigger. At 16 weeks there was just too much blood irritating my uterus and I went into labor. It was really hard because the baby was fine. It was just the SCH that caused the labor. I try not to scare people because SCH's are so common but large ones are not. When someone says "it's just an SCH" to other moms I have to bite my tongue and not tell my story so I don't' scare them.

Ashaford!! I had an sch with one of my losses that got quite big, my Dr did say it was a possible cause. So I'm always weary of sch. I know they can be common and almost always resolve without issue. It's just scary to think of all the what ifs, and to realize all the things that "could" go wrong and know what a miracle life is!! My current worry is cord issues and prolapse cord or uterine rupture... it's always something isn't it?!

Thank you all for the well wishes for my root canal.. it's in 2 hours and I'm really anxious. I know I need to just suck it up and get on with it but I'm just worried!!

I hate dental work pink, I hope it goes quickly for you.

Ashaford Im so sorry that happened to you. SCHs are scary since they really can go either way

I had my anatomy u/s and everything went well but I got a call to redo it as the radiologist couldn't be sure that my placenta was at least 2 cm away from the cervical opening due to a contraction. The contraction part was unnerving by upon speaking to my Dr, she assured me that Braxton Hicks is normal at this point.

med I've been getting Braxton hicks since 10 weeks with this one! I hope they can get the measurement they need and it's all good. Glad they are wanting to be extra sure that it's correct!
