  • Yes, bloody noses and seeming to never get over a cold are normal in pregnancy. The hormones that help your vagina and cervix change also affect your sinuses. Try a humidifier in your bedroom to help out with the nosebleeds. And yes your discharge will change because of the shift in hormones. Follow up with your doctor if you don't feel any better soon.

  • I had SEVERE bloody noses during my pregnancy. At one point had to call the obgyn, headed to emergency room and had it cauterized. Yuck! they really stink! Nothing you can do but tell your doctor.
