  • is normal to get nose bleeds. your body has extra blood in it pumping around and the node things in the back of your nose get swollen when your pregnant and can cause nose bleeds and extra boogers lol. its normal just like "pink toothbrush" but just like that if it gets extreme call the doc and tell them

  • you NEED IRON call your doctor to get your Iron levels checked - also if you take vitamin C it helps your body absorb the iron.
    when you are in the midst of a nose bleed - get something cold to compress to the back of your neck (ice pack, cold drink in a glass bottle) and blow your nose to loosen the blood clot - once you see the clot your nose will releave and should stop.
