Were you flat on your back? Next time get the dentist to put the couch in a more sitting up position with your head tilted back.

I gag much more easily and can quickly feel sick now I'm pregnany. Things that wouldn't bother me at all normally have me gipping now. It's v. annoying.

Depending on how many weeks preg you are and how big the baby is, it can press on the large blood vessels in your abdomen and make you feel sick and dizzy.

After my last appt (when I was < 3 months) I was ok, but the dental receptionist made my next appt for the week before I am due!! I told her this and she just laughed and put it in the computer anyway. I insisted I really was pg but still waiting for my prescription card thingy and she stood up, peered over the counter at my stomach, and gave me a look like hmm. Why would I lie?!

Anyway it could be interesting...
