Hi im 8 weeks pregnant with DC2 and had a nosebleed in work the other day (no-one knows im pregnant yet!). I remembered I had this last time. Does anyone else get them and is it anything to worry about? Im doing wrong?

No, it's nothing to worry about - it's very common. You have a lot more blood during pregnancy and fluctuations in blood pressure which can cause nose bleeds. Unless it goes on for over an hour or is repeated, don't worry.

Tis very embarrassing though isn't it - I used to suffer terribly from them.

I've had a couple of mild ones. My midwife said it happenend to some women but it wasn't anything to worry about.

i also figured it's a long way from the worst / most embarassing things that can happen

Ooh, I had these a lot last time. It is annoying but as others have said, no need to worry.
