    Does anyone know if I can have a general anesthetic while I'm pregnant?

    I was told by the dentist that I need to have all of my wisdom teeth out :cry: and that because I'm not too keen on the idea he will arrange for the hospital to take them all out at once under a general anesthetic. The problem is I'm guessing I will have quite a wait before it's done and I want to start TTC in July but obviously don't want to do anything that could harm any baby I could be carrying at the time.

    From what I know (I have queried about going under GA whilst pregnant) most UK doctors won't do it I'm afraid. Anything that could be even remotely antagonistic to a pregnancy isn't worth the risk (and that includes diving for me!).

    Thanks, I thought that was probably the case. I'll try and hurry up my appointment I think coz I'm not putting off TTC after July, I can barely wait until then as it is!!!

    I also want to try and loose half a stone before July, judging from the bump pictures people have already posted in the other forums I could pass for 10 weeks pregnant at the moment!!!:rofl:

    No you can't, but I had mine out when I was pg with just the Novocain shots and laughing gas and I promise that I didn't feel a thing! The laughing gas is actually kinda fun.
