I never, ever have nosebleeds--except sometimes when I'm pregnant.

This morning I was bending over my 5 year old, helping him practice his letters, and I started dripping blood on him! It was freaky. I quickly filled up 5-6 tissues with blood. It stopped in about 10 minutes.

What could be the cause of this? It's very unlikely that I'm pregnant. I don't have a cold or allergies. And it isn't dry air, because it's been rainy and humid here lately. What has me concerned is that my 22 month old also had a random nosebleed last night. It is possible there is something weird in the air that's giving us nosebleeds? We do live in a heavily industrialized area.

Any thoughts?
