I am in my first trimester and have been going through severe morning sickness. But to add to that, I had a nose bleed in the morning. Is that normal? Is there anything I can do to stop this from happening again?

Hi mommy, nosebleeds are common in the first trimester. Your body will start to increase blood production, an of about 40% more blood than usual. The delicate thin skin of your nose becomes an easy target when blowing your nose, crying, sneezing, or pretty much anything can cause a light nosebleed. Don't let your nose get too dry if possible. A friend of mine suggests using Vaseline jelly or if possible, be around a humidifier whenever you can, especially when you sleep. http://www.whattoexpect.com/blogs/jenns-product-guide-to-a-posh-pregnancy-/chapter-1-congratulations-youre-expecting-nosebleeds-heartburn-nausea-and-a-super-sniffer-
