Bloody Nose?

Postby Petunia » Mon Mar 05, 2012 11:13 am

I remember after I delivered my son that I had a bloody nose... I wondered if that was from the high blood pressure? Now I'm only 8 weeks and I have a bloody nose again...it's not like pouring out, but almost every time I blow my nose (which is several times a day) it has blood or little clots of blood in it. This makes me nervous for obvious reasons...my next appointment is Wednesday but I'm wondering if I need to go check my blood pressure before then? So far this pregnancy it has been back to normal... any advice?

I just searched through old posts and saw a few mentioning baby aspirin, could that combined with the 1st trimester stuffy nose be the cause?

I had a bloody nose with my first the day I was delivered which they said was due to pree but I have also heard that it is a normal part of pregnancy. Not sure how to advise. Hope you get some good answers.

I have never heard about a bloody nose being part of PE - very interesting!
I will say, though, that usually at the end of the first trimester, I get a sinus junk that seems to last a few weeks and part of it includes a bloody nose. Just off and on, bothersome, and nothing serious. Did you have your appt today? Mention it to the doc?

I did have my appointment and was so relieved that everything went well that I forgot to ask him about it. My blood pressure was good though, so I guess it has nothing to do with that. If it keeps happening I'll try to remember to ask about it at my next appointment in two weeks.
