  • probably no worries.. i had many bleeds to... you are carrying 40% more blood in your body right now and the hormones definately aren't helping... as long as they don't get bad and you don't get light headed during or after then just relax and drink some water.

  • High blood pressure can cause nose bleeds. I'm sure your OB is keeping an eye on your BP. It could be allergies. I would call your OB if the problem continues just to be safe.

  • from what i know bloody noses are normal. starting anywhere after 5 months. have you blood pressure checked but a lot of bloody noses are caused by the increase blood in your body.

  • With each pregnancy I have had nose bleeds; even with this one. I never have them otherwise. All the previous answers are correct; but I wouldn't worry unless it is literally pouring out of your nose. GL!

  • its normal to get nose bleeds. i just read this in my pregnancy book tonight :) a humidifier will help. but during pregnancy the little node things in the back of your nose get swollen, and you can get extra boogers too lol. but its normal to get.. try a humidifier especially in winter time because the air is much drier that time of year. i get it too.. and i have hardcore boogers ha!
