Quoting Preggo Bear Claw:" ... Okay, so my midwife actually referred me to the dentist and they continuously said they wouldn't ... [snip!] ... snip the nerve to get you out of pain until you can get into the dentist ... This is only in extreme cases of pain though ..."
I went to the ER after calling my OB, she literally took a 10 second look at my tooth, and said I needed antibiotics, and with this really sympathetic face said I CAN give you pain meds. They will cross the placenta but they will not harm the baby... I asked Are you sure they wont? And she laughed at me, reassuring me she were a doctor and wouldn't say other wise, but was glad to see me concerned. So I got penicillin and Vicodine. I already feel better.
I'm glad I followed the advice and called my OB and went in. I couldn't handle another night like last. It was awful!
