I had nose bleeds because of high blood pressure for awhile, but if u had high blood pressure im sure that wouls have been picked up on by now

i had quite a few at the begining of my pregnancy, but that was coz all the extra blood in my body. And my nose has been pretty stuffy all through my pregnancy, and if I give it a good blow, occasionaly I will have a nose bleed. Also if I cry alot. Im also 35 weeks preg.

Im not too sure why u getting nose bleeds, do you think you bash your nose while your asleep?

Hope it helps.

You can have nose bleeds as well becuase of the humidity as well as the heat/dry air. What you can do to help is get some vaseline before you go to bed and put it on the wall of your nose inside and believe me it will help. My doctor rold me to do this and it helped me. I hope it works for you

Right before I found out I was pregnant, I was at my house in prescott valley...Cause I had left my bf, and moved out of town, the weather change got me I guess, and one morning I woke up and I looked in the mirror I had blood smeared around my face, and I was like omg and I woke up my roomate, it was pouring out like a faucet, and it didnt stop for like 2 hours, I had to work...Back in the other town (long drive), and they were gunna make me go to the er cause it was soo heavy bleeding. It pissed me off the most though cause I had just got this cool ninja turtle pillow, and I bled on it. :(:(:(

since i've been pregnant bloody noses are like waking up for me!!! I get probably 4 or 5 a week mostly when I wake up at some point. It sucks!!! It's been happening since like week 8 and still is. Is it not normal to still get them and heavily at times at 24 weeks?! Should I mention it to the doc?


i would. Have you tried anything to stop them?

I read in my pregnancy book that nose bleeds a common. The bloodvessels in our noses are very fragile and during pregnancy our bloodcirculation is stronger to better feed the embryo. So more little bloodvessels pop in the nose...Not much can be done...But it will pass;-)

hope it helps;-)

I get nose bleeds all the time now too!!! And I think i'm pregnant... Like a lot of people on here... I haven't had a nose bleed since like kindergarden... And now everytime I gently touch my nose ( on the outside... Hahaha) it bleeds... I dunno... Maybe its because of pregnancy after all... But I must say... Its nasty... Hahaha!!!

I've never really had a nose bleed but I do have blood when I blow my nose in the morning. Very dry here with it being so cold lately. I had the humidifier on for a couple of days but it didn't help much.. :(

Sorry jlee it comes from attendre bebe by dr rené frydman...I'm in france and so I have french pregnancy books.

I must say the books and you lot are really my lifesaver..Especially because in my family last year both my sisters-in-law miscarried at 4/5 months and so nobody wants to talk about my pregnancy.

Moreover, with in vitro, miscarriages are higher and so even my specialist doesn't want to declare my pregnany yet even though i'm in my 3rd month now (9 weeks) and I still haven't had my first long interview with my gynecologist yet.

I have another appointment with my specialist today and he'll do another quick u/s but i'm not worried because if I feel so nauseous the whole time...It means that the embryo is still there and doing well ;-)


ladies, I hope you all have a lovely zen nauseous free day;-)
