  • It sounds like your nasal passage is just a little dry. Saline spray in each nostril will help to combat dryness. A humidifier in your room my help while you sleep or if you dont have one, try a small bowl filled with water and place it over a vent, this will help to put moisture in the air. Also, if you have a nose bleed, most people tend to put thier head back. They key is to slightly pinch the nostril to stop the bleed and place your chin to your chest. this will help the bleed clot faster and you wont get blood going to the back of your throat. I experience this with my pregnancy as well. Good luck
