can irritated gums be a sign of pregnancy?

i know that women who are pregnant often have irritated and swelling gums, however does this occur well into the pregnancy or can it be a sign of pregnancy? meaning ...if one were to have swelling and bleeding gums can it be taken for a sign of pregnancy?

Re: can irritated gums be a sign of pregnancy?

The only real sign of pregnancy is a positive pregnancy test. Even then, the only sure sign is to see the fetus on an ultrasound with its heart beating. We can read into every little thing as a sign (I know from personal experience).
Good luck to you if you're trying to get pregnant!
