The cloves work to numb the area, but they do make it already mixed, its called gumomile, i got mine at whole foods but also i would use cold packs, i put uncooked rice in a tube sock and tied it up like i had mumps. It got me through until i had them removed and helped with recovery too. Rice is cheap and doesn't sweat like ice does, so make several to rotate. Make sure you put them in a freezer bag when in the freezer though. If need be you can heat these too in the microwave 1-2min. It smells like bread cooking but you can use them for years freezing and heating.
Its hard taking time for yourself when your prego, specially when you're taking care of other young children, best of luck to you--
remember rest while you can!
