Your Developments

  • You will now be able to sense when your baby is awake.
  • Nose bleeds can sometimes occur because of increased blood volume and nasal congestion.

Pregnancy To Do's

  • If nose bleeds are an issue, try applying a little petroleum jelly in each nostril. A humidifier may also help. Do not irritate the nasal mucosa.
