It seems like the closer I get to the end of my pregnancy, the bigger my nose gets. I mean, it is still an ok shape and everything, but I have no doubt it is bigger..



Maaann, If we pregnant ladies didn;t have enough issues from swoolen feet to hemorrhoids to bacne, do we really need to get bigger noses too? I wonder how long it is going to take to get smaller after delivery.

I'v never heard of that, do you mean like your gaining weight in your face and it looks bigger? Or are you saying it actually looks longer?

LOL your post title made me laugh.
Looking back at my pictures, I think my nose was a little... bloated I guess right before I had my daugher, but it went away just as fast as all my water weight after the birth. I think its just fluid retention that does it. Your nose doesnt actually change in size thank goodness! :)

Mine did this too =) It's the extra fluid and swelling of the mucous membranes that happens on when you're pregnant. I snored like crazy when I was pregnant too!

Yes, my nose has gotten fatter too!



I honestly think it has something to do with carrying a boy. Something with the hormones. I don't normally believe in those old wives' tales, but my nose did not change at all when I carried both my daughters. Now I'm carrying a boy and my nose is swollen looking, just like it was when I carried my other son.



Don't worry though, it will go back to normal after you have the baby. :)
