bowerpowerblog Yall have been so encouraging while I go through this root canal ordeal. I just wanted to say thanks. Also my nightstand is a hot mess of root canal aftermath. Chocolate milk with ice has been a saving grace. Also my silver lining is that I've lost seven pounds. So that's pretty good considering It will help me not exceed my pregnancy goal by too much! All that to say...tomorrow is the big "dental" day and my fingers are crossed that everything gets sorted out! #thanksagain #youaremybae 12h

bowerpowerblog I know this is weird but at this point I am sort of desperate...my root canal seems to have some complications. For the last three days, I am having a steady pain on that side with stabbing spasms of extreme pain from my ear down to the front teeth. I've had a root canal before so I know it's not normal. Also they gave me a Rx for Tylenol with codeine but it doesn't seem to help at all. I think it's nerve damage of some sort. I'm supposed to go back to get the other root canal finished and get a crown but I'm not sure I can handle the pain of it all. If you are a dentist, could you advise me? I'm thinking the best course of action would be to see a endodontist and postpone the other root canal till they can put me under...but any recommendations would be appreciated. 2d
  •   hila_cool I hope you're feeling some relief today!! 1d
  •   stefanie_falcone Oh no! I had the same thing happen (pre-kids so I could at least take a strong pain killer). Worst pain of my life, my face was swollen, throbbed in unbearable pain. Had a serious infection after the root canal. It had to be drained, swelled more and took 9 days to clear up from the Strongest antibiotic they could give (which also made me sick). I wish that pain on no one. Worst experience of my life. 1d
  •   asmccaslin Feel better, girl. <3 1d
  •   katiemregister Maybe go to your doctor and get other nerve problems ruled out... Just to be safe. There are some other things that can cause that pain. 22h
  •   rloy5 Thinking of you, Katie! Hope you were able to get some relief! 22h
  •   pmartins55 I'm sorry Katie. Wondering what ur dentist who did the root canal is saying. This is not at all normal. A root cal pain goes away within 24 hrs. I've had many so speaking from experience. 17h
  •   thentherewerefive Yes, agree I too learned the hard way.. Only do root canal's with an endotontist!. Pregnancy has a way of bringing up dental problems, such bad timing, I know. Hope you find relief soon. 12h
  •   lilyloams My dh had this happen! Yes go to Endodontist and get antibiotics! 4h

bowerpowerblog Perfect weather today. Warm enough for sprinklers and baby pools...cool enough that my pregnant ankles didn't swell. Like I said...perfect!

bowerpowerblog So they couldn't get me numb enough to finish the second root canal. I just feel too much. And my entire jaw on that side hurts like the dickens now. I was there for five hours. Not trying to complain but seriously, I would rather give birth than have dental work done. It's my kryptonite. Also look at these azaleas in my back yard. #distractdistractdistract #ouch 5d
  •   eehavey You need to try dental sedation if it's that bad for you. My dad does it... so come to Chicago :) 4d
  •   areeddds @brookehasenfelt I was thinking the same thing! I hear "i hate the dentist" nearly every day, but I think I'm pretty likable:) just trying to save the world, one tooth at a time 4d
  •   brookehasenfelt @trinamoon root canals are not supposed to hurt. please don't be afraid! I've had one myself and it was painless! you head bad things about them bc people with bad experiences are way more likely to talk about them than those who had a good experience. see a reputable endodontist who can get you appropriately numb and you literally should be able to fall asleep during it...many of my patients have! it's when your tooth is really infected and when you've waited too long to get it done that it makes it difficult to get patients numb (tissues are more acidic when there's infection, so anesthetic gets broken down much quicker and isn't as effective). if the dentist is working on your root canal and you truly aren't numb, ask for an antibiotic and to reschedule for another week or two out to let infection subside! 4d
  •   brookehasenfelt @areeddds we can only do what we can do! 4d
  •   angcastagno People have been "hating the dentist" for decades now. Pretty sure you knew that when you decided to go to dental school. You should be able to not take it personally. Nobody likes something that interrupts their day, requires shots and drilling in their mouth, often leaves them a little sore, and costs a freakin fortune. And sometimes even people who practice great dental habits dont have great teeth. Your flowers look beautiful Katie. So sorry you had to spend your day in the chair! 4d
  •   areeddds I know what you mean, we just joke because we hear it all the time:) totally agree that it sucks to be in a dental chair.... ask me how I know:) and yes, totally aware of the "i hate the dentist" thing when I went to dental school:) actually my favorite patients are the ones I can convert from white knuckling it to somewhat tolerating it 4d
  •   coolliz4 Oh man that sucks so bad. 4d
  •   audralhawkins Sounds horrible Katie. My hubby wasn't properly numbed during a root canal and passed out from pain. All 220 lbs of him slid out of the chair and pinned the attendant that tried to "catch him." Awful and funny. Your shrubs are gorgeous! 3d

bowerpowerblog I came in at 11am for a filling that fell out and some discomfort. I'm now in the chair getting two root canals. I'm pretty much like the luckiest girl ever. 5d

bowerpowerblog I have to admit...sewing...not my strongest skill. But I do get to do it alone (Weston is napping, Will is playing outside, Jer took LJ to mow the lawn) so I am blissfully enjoying the peace and humming of the machine. Maybe I should do this everyday! #bigboyswroom 6d

bowerpowerblog It's hard to describe how hard these two fight and how sweetly they love and how perfectly paired they are. They are polar opposites and yet compliment each other's strengths and weaknesses. My heart can hardly handle it all sometimes...this roller coaster of raising men. #proudmama 1w
  •   mamaplumb I could have written that very same paragraph! 1w
  •   lvoity My boys are 18 months apart and the fighting just. won't. stop! Yet I cry every time I catch a sweet moment shared between them. Boys, they're the best 1w
  •   jimenezboys3 Oh my soul, yes! 3 boys 10, 8 & 4 here and it doesn't stop. Frustrating, awesome, tiring and amazing! 1w
  •   jenn_amano Do you follow @gracelaced ? She has 6 boys! You would probably love her feed! 1w
  •   redheadmama2three I'm so glad you wrote this @bowerpowerblog. I thought it was just my daily struggle. The way they fight is mind boggling. My brother and I fought but these boys are SO competitive over even the dumbest things like "my feet can touch the floor in the car". 1w
  •   bowerpowerblog @jenn_amano yup. I think it's hard not to fall in love with that lady and her heart! Plus those boys are way too cute!!! 1w
  •   wendy_stewart This also perfectly describes my two boys. 1w

  •   freshhibiscus Three in diapers? Yeah, I can see how that wouldn't be much fun! Do you still do cloth? 1w
  •   jenniebartosik You're brave! I'm honestly too lazy to potty train my 2 year old yet! 1w
  •   bowerpowerblog @freshhibiscus not with Weston but I will use them during potty training season when that happens 1w
  •   bowerpowerblog @jenniebartosik I'm not doing it yet either! He isn't ready and honestly we waited with Will and it was the best thing 1w
  •   jae_arrrr Ok so my LO, Nolan, will be 2.5 years old in 3 weeks.. When baby #2 is due. Eek. He doesn't seem ready and I figure it'd be better to wait A) a bit after baby is born and also B) when it's summer up and warm up here so we can hopefully keep some of the mess outside! (#canadaproblems) Did you have a technique with Will that worked best? I'm so nervous!! 1w
  •   jenniebartosik @bowerpowerblog That's good to hear! We started over a year ago with our oldest and it was a struggle. She's still in diapers at night! We'll probably wait until our 2 year old actually wants to do it! Which means I now have 3 in diapers, but I hate potty training so that's fine with me! 1w

  •   aimeeoakes @bowerpowerblog is it awkward not being able to have your legs under the table when dining? Or would you recommend this table more as part of a conversation set? 1w

bowerpowerblog My mom came over and we had a couch date. It was so fun! We had cold drinks thanks to Dasani and I scarfed down this avocado as soon as we were done (aka when we got interrupted by the little people). Remind me to take this break next week with her. #makesmefeelhuman #ad #linkinprofile 2w
