    I woke up this morning with a nose bleed :shrug:
    I've never had one before and was just wondering if they are normal in pregnancy?
    Or just something that randomly happened?

    Yes its very normal. :thumbup:
    The increase in hormones have something to do with it.
    I get them a lot.

    Completely normal hun. I started getting them at 8 weeks and still have them. I usually have 1 or 2 a day. It's all to do with your vessels opening etc due to oestrogen.

    This was my first "symptom" of pregnancy. I had never in my life had one until I got pregnant...have probably had 10 since I found out and every single time I've blown my nose since I've been pregnant there is blood in it...:sick: But I asked my OB at my first appt at 8 weeks and she said that its pretty common so nothing to worry about.

    I had 2 sever bleeds in my 1st tri. One sent me to the ER cause I was passing huge clots (tmi) it freaked me out!

    I did read that it get more common in your 2nd tri b/c the blood suffaces to the top to supply to the blood vessels. Blood flow becomes more demanding for your body.

    It is quite common, was told by my doctor it's due to hormones etc..

    I haven't had any nosebleeds, but I find my nose is always stuffy and am constantly blowing my nose.

    Even though you've probably gotten your answer, I just wanted to add that I, too, always have a bloody nose when I blow it. I thought I was just weird; good to know that we're not alone, huh?

    Glad to know I'm not the only one who has blood everytime I blow my nose...always worse first thing in the morning. I was going to ask the mw about it at my appointment this Tuesday in fact.

    I've been getting them since second tri! Other than being a pain in the arse (in terms of waking up in blood soaked sheets!) I don't think it's anything to worry about x
