Wisdom Teeth

The reason why I don't have a real post for today is because I got my wisdom teeth out yesterday. I didn't think getting them out would be as bad as it was, so I thought I would be able to write today's post when I got home yesterday, but that's not how it turned out. So my apologies for not having a real post today!

I totally underestimated how bad it would be to get my wisdom teeth out. The whole process wasn't bad, but everything that happened after was. I've never had an IV before until yesterday, and they really freak me out, so I asked to be given laughing gas while getting the IV that contained the anesthesia. I don't remember anything after the IV. The next thing I knew, I woke up in a different room than I was in before, and I was asleep in a chair with blanket on me. I remember asking my mom how I got in that room, and she said I walked there, but I don't remember that at all.

After we left the hospital, my mom got me a Frosty from Wendy's. My boyfriend came over yesterday afternoon to make me feel better, and he brought me Safe Haven and Ben & Jerry's Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream! I can't eat the ice cream yet because the peanut butter cups are too hard to eat, but I can't wait to eat it. The bad part is, I got sick about eight times yesterday from all of the blood that was coming out. I ended up going to sleep at 6:30 last night and woke up at 9:30 this morning! I feel a lot better.

My cheeks are puffy, but the bleeding pretty much stopped. I'm SO happy my gums stopped bleeding because it got so annoying having to change the gauze every half hour, and it was even more annoying having to get up in the middle of the night to change it! My mom scheduled my wisdom teeth appointment for yesterday because I didn't have school due to prom being Thursday night, so it made this weekend a four day weekend.

Sorry for all of the rambling, but I thought I would just share with you guys why there is no real post! Everything will be back to normal tomorrow!


  1. Thank you so much for sharing this post - my wisdom teeth started coming through last week and were so painful that I thought I'd have to have them taken out - I was so worried, but reading this has really put my mind at ease - if I do have to have them out, it wont be that bad! :)

    1. Aw, you're welcome! Let me know if you need any advice for your wisdom teeth :)

  2. Wisdom teeth removal is literally one of my biggest fears - so glad you made it okay!

  3. I'm getting mine out tomorrow, but the whole, should I say, experience (including pain meds and all the other mess) should only take 5 days. Mine haven't caused any problems yet, except that I have all 4 and not enough room! Fingers crossed!
