    And literaly in the last 5 minutes a huge blister looking thing has popped up on the roof of my mouth!

    i've taken a case of bleeding gums since the start of my pregnancy - it's common for gums etc to change. If they are really sore though (which it sounds like you are!!) don't wait til your next 6month check up to visit the dentist, go now and remember - all your treatment will be free!

    Just over two weeks ago my gums became sore over 2 of my molars. When I looked in the mirror they were quite red and didn't seem to fit my nicely around my teeth. I put up with it for a few days hoping it would pass but then decided I should go to the dentist. The dentist said I needed a root canal immediately because bacteria had infected the root of one of the molars and completely killed the other! :( (I officially have a dead tooth! :( ) I asked her how it could have happened and she said although my teeth and mouth were obviously kept clean, it's just one of those things that some pregnant women are more prone to. Great!

    Maybe I'm just incredibly unlucky but I'd agree with the previous post that suggested you go to the dentist to have it looked at - especially if it's free :)

    i've heard bleeding gums are more prevalent (if that's the right word :p ) but not the blister. I'd go to the dentist...

    I've just recently been diagnosed with gum disease since becoming pregnant :( It's terrible..it's not to bad quiet yet but I noticed my gum was peeling away from one of my teeth so I have to be very careful when brushing and flossing not to irritate it anymore. Here in Canada the procedure to get that fixed is VERY expensive!! We don't have free dental here when pregnant so it's just an annoying thing now! Hopefully by taking a cacium pill everyday plus my prenatals will help a bit!!

    I just found out that my painful gums is from an infection. I am so angry because I brush my teeth and floss and I can not stand dirty mouth but now I feel disgusting....pregnancy is hell on some people. My dentist days pregnancy can cause all sorts of problems, If I were you I would make an appointment just to be safe.

    Ah yet another lovely pregnancy symptom - problems with your gums/ teeth. If your lucky enough to have free dental care over there, then get to the dentist! Good luck!
