  • That doesn't sound normal but it could just be caused by dry air try a humidifier and see if that helps if it doesn't you should def. go see your doc.

  • i heard about women who had nose bleeds a lot during pregnancy. And everyone said its normal. I never had it though so i have no idea. But you can always ask your doctor about it.

  • It's normal. Your mucus membranes are in overdrive during pregnancy, and so is your blood volume. Sooo naturally, nosebleeds can happen to anyone =] I haven't had a full-on nosebleed, but I've found a little bit of blood when I blow my nose. I read in a pregnancy magazine that if your nose starts to bleed, hold your head up until the bleeding stops, don't try to blow your nose (or that can make it worse...or something).
