Motivational Letter: Not sure exactly what you are referring to, but your teeth are not breaking due to your pregnancy. Your teeth may be broken down to a point where they need more than fillings to be restored properly. Express your concerns with your dentist.

Points : 1) Having children does not cause tooth damage and loss. The baby does not take calcium from your teeth. Neglect does that. 2) Toothache often means infection which can make you feel out of sorts. 3) not having examined you we can't prescribe anything. 4) This site is for general health care questions. It's not a referral site. 5) Please see a local Dentist immediately.
