Hi
Welcome to health care Magic and thanks for putting up the query
Bleeding from nose during pregnancy can be due to just nasal infection or allergy or it can be due to high blood pressure or hormonal.
Please tell me how much bleed was there? Just a trickle or heavy bleed.
Any nasal allergy?
Any trauma to nose like finger nail trauma?
It is better to get examined yourself by an Ent specialist and even get your blood pressure checked.
Follow up with the required information so that I can suggest you better.

Any further questions are always welcome.
Take care
Thanks and regards

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Mild bleeding from nose can be there during pregnancy due to hormonal changes but you must once get examined yourself by an Ent specialist to rule out any nasal pathology.
You should inform your obstetrician too about that. A recurrence might need investigations like a liver function test etc.

Any further questions are always welcome.
Take care
Thanks and regards
