    hi ladies...

    just lookin for advice really, yesterday I had a really bad headache, like a dagger was in my head, then at night my legs started 2 really hurt, not as bad a cramp but really achey and sore, and this morning I have woken with a nose bleed...

    is this anything i should worry about or is it all normal???

    I wouldn't worry too much about a headache unless it's accompanied by swollen hands/feet and sometimes face. And also 'floaters' in your vision.. All of those combined are the signs of pre-eclampsia.. Otherwise it's simply as headache.

    As for the nose bleed and leg cramps, unfortunately they are just one of those things that sometimes happen in the third trimester. Again, nothing to worry about.

    As always though, if you're really worried, contact your midwife for reassurance :)
