I suffer from them even when not pregnant so I don't know if it's normal or not. Do you use Listerine? The reason I ask is that I have found that this helps prevent me from getting mouth ulcers and also seems to help them heal more quickly when I do get one. And avoiding acidic foods (tomatoes, OJ, etc.) should help as well
I've asked OH to pop to the chemist on his way home and get me something. I haven't used anything for them yet, medicines always confuse me when pregnant because there are so many you can't have whilst pregnant! But I cave now lol!
I used to get them all the time, only had one so far while pregnant (knock on wood)! I had a chat with my dentist about it and she said people get them when they're stressed!
Some people are more prone to getting them than others.
to all pregnant women who get them. As if we don't have enough pain and discomfort already!
I get them all the time, have 2 right now. Just watch for any swelling under your jaw or fever or chills, then you will have to go on antibiotics to get rid of it. I have had to 4 times in the last 5 years.
