Dental Deferrment

It's been 742 days since I had a dentist appointment. Bad, I know. My last appointment was about 3 weeks before I found out I was pregnant with KT. I know that I should have gone when I was pregnant, especially with the horrendous amount of times I threw up because of the stupid HG. But when you're that sick the last thing you want to deal with is having people put their hands and other things in your mouth.

And after KT was born I just put it off. Last spring/summer I discovered that the enamel on my teeth is cracked. I can guarantee it's from being so sick. Instead of dealing with it and making an appointment I just stick my head in the sand and go about my business.

A couple of weeks ago I finally found a dentist with extended hours and called for an appointment. I was supposed to be there at 7am this morning. Key phrase in that sentence: supposed to be. I'm sick again, similar to what was wrong a few weeks ago. There was no way I was dragging my sorry butt out of bed at 5:45 to make a 7am appointment. So I called and canceled it.

Wonder how many days it will take to actually reschedule it?

Sorry you are so sick! Hope you get better soon.

If it makes you feel better, I haven't been to the dentist in umm... 10 years? YIKES! I guess I need to get on that don't I?

Hope you feel better soon! I hate going to the dentist. I usually go every 6 months to get my teeth cleaned...I just cancelled my appt that is supposed to be tomorrow. We'll see how long it will take me to reschedule that one. I don't feel like going until after I have Chase. Oh...and I have 3 cavities that need to be filled...BAD ME!!! I just hate it! (I swear, my teeth went soft after having Eli...never having cavities before that!)
