Swollen gum at the back

I’m having swollen gum at the back of my left side of teeth, it’s painful that I can’t open my mouth fully at all, I can’t eat well due to that. Any advice please .. I don’t wanna go see dentist . I scared they will ask me to pluck my tooth I’m currently at 19weeks

i have had to visit dentist twice alr since i got pregnant, swollen/bleeding/sensitive gums are a common pregnancy symptom due to hormones. MUST go dentist to make sure you dont accumulate bad bacteria that could harm the baby - thats what my gynae advised
