Wow what a time we've had...
So a couple weeks ago, my gums were hurting really bad, it came and went throughout the week but it kept getting progressively worse. So I finally broke down and went to the dentist because it was becoming slowly unbearable. He told me that it was gingivitis that was just made worse by pregnancy hormones, and that it probably would keep up until after I was done nursing (let me tell you that made me oh so happy). So he prescribed me some mouthwash-who knew dentists could prescribe stuff? Not I!- and so I went and got this mouthwash, and started using it. Then on Saturday the pain had moved to the row of teeth, I was in soooo much pain!! I finally went to instacare because I couldn't get a hold of my dentist, and because of how much pain I was in, I was just praying that they would be able to do something for me. Unfortunately, because I was 33 weeks pregnant-as the physicians assistant was so happy to remind me of- he didn't want to do anything for me, but that didn't stop him from telling me all the things he could do for me-if I wasn't 33 weeks pregnant. It was a total waste of time, and I totally started crying as soon as we were out of the building. My pain was building up and the only thing I was allowed to have was Tylenol, which does nothing for pain, I was in so much pain I couldn't chew or even touch my teeth with my tongue. I ended up making a rice bag out of one of Jon's socks because I had nothing else, and then it became my comforter for the next week. Then Sunday, it had localized to one tooth which hurt like no other, but I couldn't not go to church because I was playing a piano duet for mothers day. After playing Jon and I just left and he took me home. Then Monday I went back to the dentist and he told me that I needed a root canal, he then prescribed me an antibiotic and then said that he would give me Lortab for the pain if my OB ok-ed it. So I filled my antibiotic and then called my OB's office, and lo and behold some lady had decided to have her freaking baby that day. So I couldn't talk to him to get the ok for my pain medication. Finally his nurse got a hold of him and she called me back and told me that he'd said it was ok. So Jon rushed to the pharmacy after I called my dentists to call in my prescription and while he was gone I was in so much pain that I am pretty sure I passed out because of how much pain I was in. Jon finally got home with my medication, and then I don't remember the rest of the night. According to Jon I was very funny and said some very funny things, including calling Pantomime the "meow".
So Tuesday I had a partial root canal but he couldn't get all of it out, so I had to go to a specialist the next day (Wednesday) and he got to finish the job. Then that night we went to dinner for my dad's birthday. And for the first time since Saturday I managed to eat semi solid foods. The next day was Thursday, and truth be told, I didn't realize that it was Thursday. As much as the root canal sucked, I'm glad it's over and now I'm not in pain.
During all of this, sometime... Jon and I got maternity photo's taken!! They turned out really awesome! Our photographer was Jen Hampton and she was really awesome. We totally loved her! Jon was really funny because we got pictures taken in fields and what not and Jon finally piped up and said, "for a girl who hates nature we sure get pictures taken in nature a lot..." and I realized that that was true. So here are a couple of our maternity photo's!
