Anyone else having trouble brushing their teeth?

That's what set off my m/s this morning, and made me actually throw up for the first time - just brushing my teeth. And the really crappy part is that once I threw up, I knew I had to brush my teeth again to get them clean again. Yuck. I think it doesn't help that I use an electric toothbrush. I can't really explain it, but the vibrations only add to the over all sick feeling.

Sorry I can't say it's hard here. I do gag now which is weird but that's only once or twice when I'm cleaning my tongue...fun visual, huh?!

I hope you can hurry and get past this. Would a manual brush help?

We had this discussion on the December board. Some of the girls swear by cinnamon toothpaste- said it helped a lot! Luckily my "morning" sickness is in the late afternoon/evening so it only interferes with some teethbrushing and not all.

Brushing my teeth has made me gag with each pregnancy. I hate it! It just started a few days ago, and I know it will only get worse.

Not this pregnancy yet but last pregnancy it was BAD. I could not brush my back teeth without setting off my gag reflex. So I would brush the front then listerine the rest... I just could not do it.

ME!! I *almost* threw up this morning while brushing my teeth. I think it doesn't help that my dh thought he'd like to try out the "citrus" toothpaste. *BARF!* I don't recommend it. I never really get too sick with m/s though but have been very nauseous and gag a lot lately.

This is me. Cinnamon toothpaste helps me a LITTLE, but I still gag most of the time.
