Pregnancy gingivitis

I saw the dentist a few months ago and told her my gums had started bleeding- which they have with every pregnancy - and she sent me away with lots of warnings about gum disease. I brush loads, use mouth wash and floss but still have one area that bleeds.
Has anyone else suffered with ths?

How many weeks are you?

I had this early on in my pregnancy but it seemed to clear itself up around 20ish weeks

I thought this was pretty normal in pregnancy. If it carries on after your baby arrives, then maybe ask the dentist again.

Pregnant is bonkers!

It's very normal in pregnancy. If you're flossing etc then there's not much more you can do. I had this and mine has also cleared up a lot after about week 18.

I am 36 weeks! Saw dentist again today. She said X-ray after birth.
