Oh nothing worse! You can take paracetamol. Just plain paracetamol. Nothing with an anti-inflamatory in it.

Have you tried paracetamol? I'd start with this, fine to take in pregnancy - I'd my appendix out at 18 weeks and lived on panadol! Maybe gargle disprin to numb the gums? but don't swallow :innocent: :o0

[quote="lovemybaby":1hsugck4]Yeh it's the blue pack, can't take the green one that's fast acting![/quote:1hsugck4] Really? I had a constant tooth ache from week 9 until I finally got the tooth removed at week 24 of my last pregnancy and I lived on the green pack... DS2 came out perfectly fine.... Why can't you take the green pack?

As far as I can remember it's a higher dosage?
