  • I have heard that it is. I had never had them either until pregnancy and the doc and my friends said it was normal. I still don't like the idea of it though, it doesn't seem normal.

  • Yes, it is because of all the extra blood flow and skin drying out.
    To help it stop, go into the bathroom and lean foreword over the sink (so there isn't a mess) and using tissue or a rag pinch the bridge of your nose. The pressure should help it to stop bleeding.
