i went to dentist when i was just newly pregnant and dentist said i needed a little gum scraping which would require novacaine. I found out i was pregnant so i cancelled appt and figured i'd find out if i could get this done from ob/gyn. Well finally today i got a dental clearance stating what i can have done etc. Well it says i can only be given lidocaine without epinephrine.

I've had dental work while pregnant, and I think they numbed it.

I only have clearance for lidocaine without epinepherine which i think is what causes the numbing..so i can't get novacaine :( i may just wait the 6 mths but i don't know..maybe i'll get it over with. i guess i have to talk to my dentist.
