i had a pleasure of seeing mare bear this last weekend and it was so fun! So i flew out to San Fran on Thursday morning, had a layover in Denver. While waiting to board for my connecting flight, I suddenly felt like I needed to wipe my nose cause it was running really bad. So luckily I had stored a big ole pile of kleenex (because I've sorta had a cold lately) out of my purse, to my lovely surprise I did NOT have a runny nose.
I had a GIGANTIC nose bleed that went on for 20 minutes!!!!!! LITERALLY! It wouldn't stop. I cocked my head back, I pinched my nose, I know the tricks, my sister Anne used to get them a lot. So I called my mom all panicked and asked her if I somehow hurt my baby by flying or if this was normal. She reassured me and told me it's really common to get nose bleeds when your pregnant, but that they were really hard to stop because prego ladies have 20% more blood in their bodies....yum! Yum was sarcastic btw. I freakin swallowed blood for 20 minutes, thank goodness I didn't ralph in the plane. sick. this was traumatic and really embarrassing, sorry i had to share. i'm just warning all the other prego's out there, cuz there's a lot of us.
