Did any of you have nosebleeds while you were pregnant?

I remember having a few during the winter while I was expecting JJ, but this time it's almost an everyday occurrence. It's really no good because I have been using a million kleenex everyday and it's annoying.

Other than that everything else is ducky.

I finished my Christmas cards (woohoo!) and I think I'm close to being done with shopping. The tree is up and is decorated a little bit, JJ is really interested in it, so I'm not adding any more ornaments for him to pull off and break. Now I just need to wrap the presents and do a lot of baking :)

I didn't have nosebleeds every day, but it makes since with all the extra blood volume and swelling that come with pregnancy. That's definitely no fun though, hope they clear up soon!

Congrats on expecting #2.

Yep, it's gotta be a girl!

Sorry, no help with the nose bleeds.

But if you find yourself waking up every 2 hours or so, we can meet up on facebook....

I didn't get actual nosebleeds, just bloody snot, sorry I know it's super gross. I would try a humidifier, keeping the air moist might help.

I didn't, but Mark has been having a problem with nosebleeds since it's winter and dry (no, he's not pregnant ;) ). He's afraid to blow his nose because most times when he does, it starts a fountain. I'm going to Walmart tonight to invest in a humidifier. The stupid Vicks Vaporizer hasn't done squat and we're all dry throat and congested in the morning.

Hope you find relief!

Man you're way ahead of me with cards. I just started thinking about them.

Ever see "she's the man"? Shove tampons up your nose.

Wow, another baby on the way?? That's awesome!

Michelle said...

Did I miss something or is this the first time you mentioned being pregnant?!? Congrats!!!

You asked about growth charts on my blog... here is a link to a friend's post of our project: http://briannestephens.blogspot.com/2009/03/craft-night-growth-charts.html

We cheated though and purchased the vinyl from a local girl... so all we had to do was cut, sand & paint the board and attach the ribbon.

I had nose bleeds w/ both. My DR said it's normal as long as your blood pressure isn't high.

I had nose bleeds with my first. It was strange, but then it stopped once the air wasn't as dry. I used a saline nose spray for a little bit. Congratulations on #2!
