  • I had this happen too, I told my doc about it and they said it was normal while your preg cause the tissues in your nose swell or something. I wouldn't worry about it unless it becomes excessive then I would talk to the Doc.

  • I know that often during pregnancy, the sinuses can swell (just like every other body part LOL) so I wouldn't worry if it only happened once. If it persists, I'd speak to the doctor just to be sure.

  • Extra fluids in the body easier to burst a vessel. Normal yes treat as you would any other bloody nose. Mention to your doctor in case it is sinus swelling. You might be able to take something

  • Yes, my only bloody nose ever was while I was pregnant. You have more fluids, and nosebleeds are more common during pregnancy.
