  • it is normal. i had them when i was pregnant, and like you, i never had them before. it is because your blood supply increases dramatically during pregnancy. you may also experience bleeding gums, that's normal too. about the sex part, not sure why you'd get them then??? maybe because your blood pressure increases during sex??

  • It's normal, honey. The membranes in your nose thin out when your preg, for some reason. That's why you get stuffy noses, more boogers, and nosebleeds. All that good stuff, lol. I started getting nose bleeds about once a week at least when I entered my 3rd trimester, but my nose was basically messed up the whole time I was preg. lol!

  • My nose bleeds everyday with the mixture of pregnancy and dry air. Usually a warm shower brings on the most blood. Disgusting and annoying!
