Pregnancy is one thing that can change literally everything about a woman both physically, emotionally and mentally. Pregnant wowen experience numerous changes from weight gain to bigger noses, swollen feet, loss of appetite, funny cravings, hormonal fluctuations and even mental break down. One of those changes that has become recurrent is the increase in nose sizes. Now, alot of people might be wondering why preganant women experience these nasal changes and here's why.

Hormonal Changes.

During pregnancy, a woman's body undergoes significant hormonal changes, including an increase in oestrogen and progesterone levels. These hormones play a crucial role in various bodily functions, including the growth and development of tissues. Basically, increasing estrogen levels in a pregnant woman's body causes the blood vessels in her nose to relax and dilate in order to increase blood flow, which in turn leads to swollen nose tissue.

Increased Blood Flow

A pregnant woman usually experiences increased blood volume and circulation which is important to support the growing foetus. This heightened blood flow affects various parts of the body, and the nose is no exception. The increased blood supply to nasal tissues could potentially contribute to its enlargement.

Fluid Retention

Another reason the nose of a pregnant woman might get bigger is fluid retention, particularly in the hands and feet. This fluid retention is a result of hormonal fluctuations and increased blood volume. While the nose might not be as prone to noticeable swelling as the extremities, subtle changes in fluid distribution could affect nasal tissues.

The good news is that the noses will go back to their normal size after these ladies give birth. So, the next time you see the nasal changes in the before and after photos of a pregnant woman, I am certain you will understand better why this happens.
