I would this late in your pregnancy wait and have fillings done after you deliver your baby.

The question is, how deep are the cavities? Really simple, or possible need for root canal therapy? Do you have to have them restored right now, or can it wait a few months? Are you in pain? The answers to these questions would help in the advice... Why don't you discuss them with your dentist... S/he knows your condition the best..

Typically we will do elective treatment in the second trimester. Since you are past that we usually wait until delivery unless there is an emergency.
