Bleeding Gums and Cavities

I'm usually very particular about dental hygiene, but now my gums have started to bleed

During pregnancy, gums get inflamed, swollen and tend to bleed easily, because of the overactive hormones. Just as it happens to the mucous membranes of the nose, causing stuffiness and nose bleeds.

I seem to have developed cavities out of nowhere!

Many women seem to get cavities during pregnancy because of insufficient calcium in their body. In earlier days, women used to say that "you lose a tooth for every child you have".  If you do have a cavity, attend to it immediately.  If the cavity gets infected, it would be more of a risk to the foetus, than having a cavity filled. Of course, special precautions must always be taken. Local anesthesia is known to be safe, but avoid x-rays of any kind at all costs.
