Its likely caused by all of the increased blood flow! Unfortunately its a pregnancy thing. :/ if its caused from increased bloodflow i don't think theres anything you can do. However if it is an actual sinus problem(sinuses are filled with mucus etc you can take sinus medication and it will help). The sinus cavity filling with mucus can be a pregnancy thing as well and due to hormones.

Look up pregnancy rhinitis! I've had it this whole pregnancy havnt been able to breath out my nose since I hit 12 weeks and the months of blowing my nose has given me bad nose bleeds daily. The only thing that help a lil is nose sprays, im 37 weeks so hopefully not much longer til I can breath normal again.

Mines like that sometimes but its a lot of sneezing and drainage with it. My doc said allergies of course and to take benedryl. Not sure if you have a sig. other or not, but if so, you may want to try sitting in the bathroom while they take a hot shower and tge steam should open your sinuses :)
