So strange!

Nosebleeds.  I had never gotten a nosebleed in my life until I came to Ithaca, when by March even I ended up with a nosebleed after 6 months of dry winter air.  But this past week I’ve had a nosebleed nearly every day–what gives?  Don’t worry: they’re very minor, and I mostly notice them because they occur just as I’m about to head off to school.  But I’ve been utterly mystified as to how Ms. I-Love-Winter has been turned into a big nerd.

Well, turns out nosebleeds are quite common during pregnancy, particularly if you a) have a cold b) spend any time in dry air.  Yup, that’s me.  Apparently something to do with the increased blood flow during pregnancy.

One surprise after another . . .
