  • first responder's right on every thing. When I was pregnant with my first baby, I had nose bleeds alot very bad ones. Try keeping your nostirlls moist with vaseline in them every couple of hours.

  • yep. im 20 weeks...I started getting them around 18 weeks. I read that it was common around that time. I havent really had a pouring blood nose bleed but it does bleed often. Just another joy of pregnancy...woohoo...lol

  • yep normal but if its alot u should talk to ur doc cause sometimes thats a sign of high blood pressure- a little bleeding though is caused by the increased blood volume
