Nose bleeds are totally normal. I have a friend who had them during her pregnancy.

Completely normal I had nose bleeds my whole pregnancy with my second and my nose has bleed my whole pregnancy this time as well. It has to do with the increased blood volume pregnant women have. Don't worry about the cold sore either.

Yep as above showers seem to really make them bad.

You should have your platelets checked they could be low. They help form clots.

I never get flowing nose bleeds but I have a lot of boogers with blood in them while I am pregnant. I keep a humidifier running and it takes care of the problem.
