I had a nose bleed last night at work, and now another after stepping out of the shower. I've had plenty of nose bleeds in my life - mostly as a kid, but I'm assuming this time around it's due to being pregnant.<br><br>
I Googled it, and read that it could be a recurring thing. Nose bleeds don't bother me much, but they're inconvenient more than anything. I just hope I don't bleed all over my shirt out in public some day. LOL. I am pretty prone to sinus issues anyway, and now I'm going to have to go to the pharmacy to get an alternative to my nasal spray (that I use for allergies) b/c it's on the Pregnancy "C" list meaning questionable as far as drugs go.<br><br>
Anyone else had nose bleeds yet?

Sorry I should have provided a link but a neti pot is for nasal irrigation, some of my friends started using it and swear by it now. <a href="http://www.healingdaily.com/exercise/neti-pot.htm" target="_blank">http://www.healingdaily.com/exercise/neti-pot.htm</a><br><br><a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j8sDIbRAXlg" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j8sDIbRAXlg</a>
