oh my gosh! my mouth just filled up with blood! anyone else?


holy mackerel!
i was sitting on my bed, just sitting there, and my mouth filled up with blood.
i mean filled up!
i spit it it out and it kept coming.
i saw it was coming from my gum area.
i have bleeding gums when i floss and brush since becoming pregnant, my doctor and dentist both said this is normal.
but this was not provoked by brushing or anything, and the blood was just pouring out.
is that normal?
anyone else experience this?
i'm freaking out a bit.

My gums have been a lot more prone to bleeding since being pregnant. I have seen my dentist and he has given me Chlorhexadine mouthwash which has helped a lot.

yeah, i would speak to someone - i am sure it is nothing to worry about but they say you should contact a dentist if you have *any* dental issues during pregnancy

Dont know if you're in the UK but if you are all dental work is free with your exemption card so definitely get it checked out!

no, i'm in canada and don't have dental coverage.
man, that was freaky.
it was so random and as if i'd been punched in the face.
lately, i often wake up to the taste of blood in my mouth and now i wonder if this has been happeneing regularly while i sleep?
i was just sitting there and could feel it filling up.
it was disturbing!

i was just saying to my boyfriend that it would have been kind of interesting had it happened later tonight when i was answering the door to trick or treaters.

No need to panic hun, it is completely normal. I have had it since week 4, and I had blood tests just to check my coagulation just in case. Aparently, its the increasing hormones that can cause gums to feel more tender and bleed. They just say to take extra care with your dental work. i.e flossing, brushing more carefully but its a side effect of pregnancy im afraid. xx

is it normal for it to be so random and profusely bleeding though?
i can understand when i'm flossing or brushing but i wasn't doing anything to my teeth or gums, i was just sitting on my bed.

No I didnt have to actually do anything to my teeth for them to bleed, sometimes they would just on there own but I really think 1) you should tell your midwife so she can get a coagulation count on you ( i.e blood clotting factors ) and then 2) Take a trip to the dentist and check you DONT have gingivitis as that can become harmful to the baby if left.
