While some women report their noses actually grew during pregnancy, it's the nose's blood vessels that cause the most common frustration. Pregnancy causes those vessels to swell, increasing pressure, which causes them to rupture easily. The result: the dreaded pregnancy nosebleed. You can attempt to avoid the problem by staying hydrated (a humidifier during colder months helps), and treat it by keeping your head elevated and applying ice.
