I’d like to use my blog today to highlight a pregnancy condition that most people have never heard of, is rarely spoken about and that the medical community in the most part are totally uninformed.

Just a quick post about my latest vlog entry, my 8 week braces update.
I'm super happy to report that for the first time in my adult life my two front upper teeth are uncrossed, and sat next to each other... Yay!
These stubborn teeth have rested moving until my dentist installed an elastic chain on my last visit, and that seemed to get them moving. I woke up two days ago and suddenly they wasn't an overlap...cue big cheesy grin! There is still some straightening up to do but I'm very happy so far.
Now I'm not sure if this is connected, but the following day, the pesky back bracket came off again. This is the same metal bracket that came off a couple of weeks ago...and I accidentally swallowed it!
To be fair to the poor bracket, it sits next to the 3 tooth bridge which isn't suitable for brackets, so I feel like it's taking a lot of strain without any neighbouring brackets to help out. It's currently dangling about in my mouth, still attached to the elastic chain, eeek.
But this is just a temporary set back and I'm sure my lovely dentist will install a new one, and off I go again. So, with that in mind I'd better go ring the dental clinic...see you next time lovelies!
