The dentist

Well I had to break down and go to the dentist today. My tooth had been hurting for a couple weeks and wasn't getting any better. I had a regular checkup scheduled for tomorrow, but when they called to remind me of my appointment I told them I had one bothering me and they told me to come in this afternoon.

I am such a baby when it comes to going to the dentist. Thank goodness Thane was off today so he could take me. I think I would rather go through labor again instead of going to the dentist. As soon as I get into the office I start to tense up. When I hit the dental chair- that's it I am a big 34 year old bawl baby! Seriously!! I bawl - silly I know but hey just trying to keep it real here.

Anyways after they strung me out on the laughing gas (no it does not make me laugh - just the opposite) and 3 shots later with lots of crying and drilling and tears the deed was finally done.

I'm sorry you hate it so bad! It's kinda hard to believe you would rather go through labor again.

I don't like the dentist either, but if my teeth are hurting, I would go too!

Hope you're feeling better!

I am a terrible terrible baby when it comes to the dentist. I put off having my top wisdom teeth extracted for YEARS and they had to knock me out completely! ;)

Glad you's better to get it taken care of before it's even worse (my hubby had experience with this this year.)
