  • I dont think pregnancy has anything to do with it. It could just be the change in weather. I get them from time to time when the weather changes.

  • Notice how your gums might bleed when you brush now that you are pregnant? Your blood volume increases a lot. Some people get bleeding gums and bleeding noses.

    If it's just now and then, don't worry. But if you are having frequent or excessive nose bleeds, call your midwife or doc and get your iron checked.

  • yes, besides hormonal, it is winter, and the extra dryness can cause the nose to bleed.
