I have also checked but still experiencing this? actually there was a serious illness in myself with me pregnancy symptoms like this? thanks for enlightenment.
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Nosebleeds and bloody bowel movements are normal conditions during pregnancy, of course, to a certain degree. During pregnancy, hormonal changes that occur cause an increase in blood flow to the nose and mouth area, causing small and thin blood vessels in the area more easily ruptured and lead to nosebleeds, especially if followed also by the habit of digging the nose, sneezing too hard, and being in an environment with dry air. Because even pregnant women can get nosebleeds while sleeping. One in five pregnant women experience this.
In dealing with this condition, you do not need to worry, you just need to lean your head forward and look down, then squeeze both sides of your nose with enough pressure to the extent to stop the flow of blood out. Don't look up and don't press too hard. Do this for 5 minutes, and breathe through your mouth. If after 5 minutes, the nose bleeds continues, close the nose again and repeat for a total of 30 minutes. If after 30 minutes it still takes place, then check with the nearest hospital emergency room, or to the ENT doctor.
As for bloody bowel movements, this can happen if pregnant women experience constipation and hemorrhoids, which is very often found in pregnant women. Just like nosebleeds, if the bleeding is not great, and does not make you weak, shortness of breath, or other symptoms, you no need to worry, just increase the consumption of vegetables, fruit and drink water.
This condition, if normal, will not interfere with the fetus, but you still have to keep control routinely to the obstetrician (once a month until the age of 7 months, 2 weeks to 9 months, and after that once a week) and tell the doctor about it your womb. With blood coming out, you should also routinely do a blood check and tell your doctor if your hemoglobin (Hb) is below the level of 10.5 mg / dL. Also limit physical activity, adequate rest, avoid cigarette smoke, and increase consumption of healthy foods. So, hopefully answering your question.
