This happens to me on and off all winter and I have never been pregnant! So I wouldn’t stress bee. It should go away in a couple days.

Glad you’re talking to a doctor, but this wouldn’t concern me. Pregnancy does make you more prone to nose bleeds because your blood volume increases. Coupled with a cold, dry weather, and nose blowing, nose bleeds aren’t surprising at all. I’ve had this happen.

milkandcookies :  I think nosebleeds are a not-uncommon pregnancy symptom- I know got a few when I was pregnant!  You have more blood pumping through your body, and the blood vessels inside your nose are already close to the skin surface and hence why it’s easy to get a nosebleed even when not pregnant.  On top of that, you also had a cold so everything might be a little inflamed.  And on top of all that, if you live in a region where it’s cold and dry out right now, you’re even MORE susceptible to bloody noses because your skin can get dry and cracked.  We live in the US northeast and my husband has gotten bad nosebleeds every morning this week!  And he hasn’t had a nosebleed in years.

You’ve likely Burst a small blood vessel in your nose. The pressure from the constant blowing means it hasn’t healed yet. It’s nothing to stress about and it will go away ๐Ÿ™‚

I get this every winter and also in the middle of summer (from being so dry).

This happened to me all the time while pregnant.

I doubt it’s pregnancy related. You’ve likely bursted some blood vessels from blowing your nose too hard and too often, so old or new blood comes out. I’m sure it’s nothing to worry about ๐Ÿ™‚

Very normal during pregnancy. I have a constant runny nose (allergies) and currently 32 weeks pregnant (3rd  child) and it’s been happening to me most of this pregnancy. Wish you a happy and healthy pregnancy ๐Ÿ˜Š

Agree with PP- totally normal. You have a lot more blood volume during pregnancy and all of your “mucus membranes” (nasal, vaginal etc)  swell from the increased pregnancy hormones. All of that can result in increased allergy symptoms, runny noses, bloody noses, and my husbands personal favorite- snoring like a trucker.  I’m pregnant with my third and I’m sneezing like it’s springtime in the dead of winter and snoring like a champ. Good luck!

Totally normal during pregnancy. With my 3rd baby I had bloody noses every day- which I’ve never had before or since. My OBGYN said due to increased blood volume. It resolved almost immediately after giving birth.

Yep, as PP have said. Totally normal during pregnancy due to the increased blood in your body.

I’m 38 weeks pregnant, woke up this morning, blew my nose bam! Nose bleed. 

It has happened a lot in this pregnancy, can’t remeber if it did in my last one too.

Definitely talk to the doctor! Yours might have better ideas than mine did. However I had this issue while I was pregnant past winter and I think they just told me to stick vaseline up my nose. And my husband was like put chapstick up there!! And I just cringed. I never could bring myself to do that.

Maybe a humidifier might help?

I’m 27 weeks and have been experiencing this too. I have never in my life had a nosebleed so when I noticed so much blood when I blew my nose, it was scary! I havent had a real nosebleed, it’s just when I blow my nose. 

Its gotten to the point where I’m surprised when there is no blood. 

I think its because our blood volume has increased so much.
