Tooth Pain Worries

I'm hesitating to blog too much until I start feeling like a normal human again :) I haven't got too much to say and am not thinking much beyond eating and sleeping, haha. I'm pretty inwardly/self-focused right now, which doesn't make for great blogging. Doubtful my experiences right now help anyone!

I had a really great weekend - the weather is getting nicer every day and I got to see my family on Saturday and friends on Sunday. I have been feeling a LITTLE more energetic, so I got more done this weekend than the last few. Overall really good stuff.

I'm worrying now because I had to make an appointment to get my recent root canal x-rayed. My OBGYN really doesn't want me to get x-rayed, but I have been having pain, so it was deemed necessary. What scares me more than the x-ray is what they are going to find on it. I know dental work and pregnancy doesn't really mesh. But the dentist said they will work with my OBGYN and come up with a recommendation, whatever they find. The appointment is late next week, so I get to stew about this for over a week, haha. And I am constantly reminded about it by the slight pain in my jaw.

So not much else to do right now other than practice calm and mindfulness. I just have to make it through this month with the dental issues, hear my baby's heartbeat in May, and maybe then I will stop feeling like such a freaking pessimist :)

Namaste, friends <3


  1. You'll be okay. The proper use of lead aprons, the experience of the medical personnel. They will guide you through the unknowns. After working in a large trauma hospital for about 7 years, I've seen preggo women go through almost everything and come out okay afterwards. Major, minor trauma, surgery, etc.

    Most risks are known and can be discussed ahead of time. No other way out rather than through. Keep going. It will all work out.

  2. I'm sure you will be ok. Sending positive thoughts, and as you say please do your best to "practice calm and mindfulness."

    Take Care

    All the best Jan
