    Hello

    I had this about a month ago and it's not very nice. It's to do with two things: firstly increase in hormones and secondly increase in blood volumes.

    I contacted my midwife and she said if I contiuned to loose a lot of blood to pop to the doctor to make sure I didn't become aneamic. Happily it stopped after about 10 days.

    That said I only had 5 or six over a week not a day. Perhaps you should see your GP just in case???

    Hope you feel better soon

    I had regular nosebleeds in my first trimester. Not gushing or anything but I never normally get them.
    I think it's normal because the membranes at the back of your nose weaken during pregnancy (I think) hence the reason you might feel more bunged up too xxx
    Let us know what the doctor says :D
