I take my kids every year even with my busy schedule but for some reason when it comes to me taking time for me, I don't usually go for checkups dental visits, eye exams, vaccinations.. I'm pretty bad about taking time for myself in general.. so this time my doc made it easy.
separate from flu shot, I'm wondering if I should also make a trek to the dentist, whom I haven't seen in years. I would love to know if anyone is doing this as well.....
When I lost my full-time job (with benefits - meep!) at a university this past February, my husband and I cancelled our dentist appointments and haven't been back since. We were really good about going twice a year - DH is a dentist's son, after all! - but when we lost the insurance and BOTH found ourselves out of full-time work, we found other more pressing things to spend our money on. Now that his new job is providing benefits, I'm nervous about going to the dentist. I feel like more than one source I've read says that pregnant women shouldn't go to the dentist during the pregnancy, but I can't remember why. : } Has anyone else heard this, or know why it might not be wise for an expectant mama to get her teeth cleaned? If there's no concern, I will most likely go in. My teeth are healthy and I brush twice daily, but I also have a receeding gumline (had corrective surgery 4 years ago, and it's back down now to where it was) that causes me concern.
