Yes and no: Nose bleeds are very common. Are they normal? No, because not everyone gets them... But they are very common: see https://www.Healthtap.Com/user_questions/50655.

Dry air: Nosebleeds at work could be to to the environment if the air is dry. The dry air may cause the lining of the nose to crack and bleed.If this persists, see your otyolaryngologist.

Fragile capillaries: Due to the high estrogen levels in pregnancy, the small blood vessels in our mucous membranes (nasal areas, oral areas) can become fragile and easily irritated --- which is why pregnant women may see nosebleeds or bleeding gums more frequently.

How many times will I need to get my blood pressure checked in pregnancy?

Dr. Anna Barbieri
Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology
At every visit: You will have your blood pressure checked at every visit. It is normal in pregnancy to see your blood pressure decrease in the second trimester and then slowly rise. Blood pressure measurements, especially in the second half of pregnancy, are important in identifying women with gestational hypertension and/or preeclampsia, conditions that can significantly impact both mother and baby.
