Apparently this is a very common symptom during pregnancy. So why have I never heard of it before now??
For the past month or so, my nose has been a bit finicky in the mornings, but two days ago I had more than usual. Luckily I had a checkup that day, and even though she said it was pretty normal, she had me draw some blood to check my platelet count, nonetheless.
But this morning I actually woke up with a full-on nosebleed! It happened again right before lunch – not quite as bad, but enough that I felt it running and had to get to a bathroom to blow my nose and rid myself of all the mess.
What’s going on? Google and many, many baby websites have confirmed that it’s normal – caused from an increase in blood flow and enlarged vessels in the nose. But it sure ain’t fun.
This, I guess, would be my first actual Pregnancy symptom. At 25 weeks, I’m hoping this isn’t the first of many!
