    Thanks, that's useful to know. I was blaming myself for being a stressbasket. I'm glad I escaped the Valium, deep breathing was a whole lot better!

    Haven't read the other posts but going through the same thing. I nursed her before the procedure and throughout, w/antibiotics because I have to premedicate. No affect at all and I quadruple checked with the dentist.

    I did not take the codeine, just a couple of extra strength tylenol and even then I just sucked it up after the first day.

    Thanks Tiffony, I just took a couple of motrin and that did the trick -- feels fine now. I did pump and dump after the procedure to be on the safe side, since the dentist said the anesthesia was level 2, but the lactation consultant said it wasn't really necessary, and I could have kept on nursing. Glad that's over! (although I still have some more normal fillings to do).
