It is normal to have bleeding gums during pregnancy. Keep your teeth clean by brushing and flossing and go to the dentist at least one time during your pregnancy for a check up and a cleaning.

I was always told it was normal. Pregnancy increases blood flow. Brushing too hard can make your gums bleed. If you are concerned, see a dentist.

Pregnant women can be prone to bleeding gums and gingivitis so it is important to have proper oral hygiene. It is very important to brush and floss daily and visit your dentist for regular cleanings.

Teeth issues are very common when pregnant. Make sure you make an appointment to see a dentist at least once during your pregnancy. Its common for your gums to bleed even on their own from all the extra blood your body is pumping. And my dentist told me your bottom front teeth are usually the first to be effected. I had problems with my bottom front teeth also. And back problems also come with being pregnant. If they get worse or you are really concerned call your doctor. They will let you know what is and isn't normal and if they suggest you get checked out.

Bleeding gums can be a normal symptom of pregnancy. Just be sure you are brushing and flossing, but you might want to make an appointment to see the dentist just in case.
