I am in pain my friends, just flat out pain. It started Saturday night while I was asleep. I woke up with a pain in my lower left teeth. It continued on Sunday but wasn't that bad, just an annoying light pain. On Monday it got worse as the day went. I called and made a dentist appointment for today at 1 pm. Then last night it just got worse and worse. I could no longer chew, it hurt if my tongue touched it, it hurt no matter what. A Whole Bunch!!! I barely slept at all and was in pure misery when I got to work this morning. So I called and the dentist said come on over and they would get me in. A few painful hours later I find out I have an abcess (sp?) tooth and have to have an emergency root canal! Ugh! So now I am sitting in a specialists office waiting for them to try to fit me in. I so hope they are able to end this pain soon. I have literally been in tears all day! It hurts that bad. Ugh!!!! And don't worry, they have spoken with my OB and all is well on that front. Apparantly the 2nd trimester is the one time you can have this stuff done with no problems during pregnancy. Thank you gracious Lord, because if they couldn't do anything for me I am not sure me and baby would make out all that well. Well they are calling me back, so wish me luck!
