The dentist is probably the worst place in the world for me. I detest it.

They have trouble freezing me, the anesthesia doesn't work like it should. Part of it is the fact that I'm red-headed, red heads require up to 30% more anesthesia to get the same effect. At my old dentist I had to use nitrous oxide gas during my fillings. They don't have it at this office, however. Plus I probably wouldn't use it when pregnant.

SO not excited.

Sandra, I'm sorry... that does majorly suck if you can still feel it!! I had no idea about the red head thing. It's crazy how genetics work sometimes. And they absolutely have to do the root canal now - they can't wait until after the pregnancy???
