The cookbook writer is currently expecting her third child with husband John Legend and in typical Teigen style, she has been open with her fans about the realities of pregnancy.
Most recently, Teigen explained on Twitter that she is suffering from pain on the bridge of her nose.
“I know when you’re preg [sic], they say your nose ‘spreads’ and I believe it because I’ve seen it on myself!”

I’m having a lot of pain on the bridge of my nose. Super tender. I know when you’re preg, they say your nose “spreads” and I believe it because I’ve seen it on myself! But has it ever caused pain for anyone?
She went on to ask if anyone else had experienced something similar and Twitter users were quick to share their own experiences.
I’ve had pregnancy rhinitis and its the worse! It lasted me almost my entire pregnancy 😪 during both pregnancies. According to the doctor it was normal, it didn’t feel normal! My nose hurt, I couldn’t breathe! Horrible! Hope you feel better soon.
When you’re pregnant your body produces hormones that soften your cartilage. This allows your pelvis to open wider for birth. It also softens ALL the cartilage in your body, which is why your feet “grow”. My hands hurt really bad when I was pregnant because of all the joints.
Around month 6ish, the inside of my nose hurt so badly, I began getting nose bleeds and it felt like the cartilage was deteriorating……..I had never heard that, but if you say so – my problem makes more sense. The hubs got me this Vick’s water steam inhaler thingy – it helped
I was pregnant last summer and it was very congested in late 1st early 2nd trimester. I was blowing it or trying to blow it so often that my nose hole was very sore I used a Netti pot and it was a lifesaver. Good luck.
The NHS doesn’t list “nose spreading” as an official symptom of pregnancy, but it does state that hormone imbalances, such as during pregnancy, could be a possible cause of non-allergic rhinitis.
The condition is an inflammation of the inside of the nose, which can lead to a mild irritation or discomfort in and around your nose.
“The inflammation is usually the result of swollen blood vessels and a build-up of fluid in the tissues of the nose,” the NHS website explains.
“This swelling blocks the nasal passages and stimulates the mucus glands in the nose, resulting in the typical symptoms of a blocked or runny nose.”

Additionally, the NHS says nose bleeds can also be a common occurrence in pregnancy, again because of hormonal changes.
Though getting a nosebleed while pregnant is no doubt frightening, the NHS says there’s nothing to worry about as long as you don’t lose a lot of blood.
The pain on the bridge of her nose isn’t the only pregnancy symptom Teigen has experienced this time around.
She recently shared she had been suffering from intense headaches and had been getting botox injected into her neck to help give her some relief.

Earlier this month Teigen shared a video of her baby scan, while opening up about the anxiety she’s been feeling in early pregnancy.
In the accompanying caption, Teigen discussed the concern she feels about “bits of spotting or pain” that many women experience in early pregnancy.
“Before I’m able to start feeling the kicks, the anxiety gets the best of me and any little bits of spotting or pain freak me ouuuuuut.”
Earlier this year, Teigen also shared the fact that she’d undergone surgery to remove her breast implants.
In an Instagram post she explained: “They’ve been great to me for many years but I’m just over it.
“I’d like to be able to zip a dress in my size, lay on my belly with pure comfort! No biggie! So don’t worry about me! All good. I’ll still have boobs, they’ll just be pure fat.”
“What are we having for dinner?” is the Groundhog Day question I rarely have a ready answer for. You’d think I’d be prepared, since I get it nightly, but too often, the answer is “I don’t know” or “takeout.” Well, Chrissy Teigen — the currently-on-bed-rest, pregnant-with-a-baby-boy, all-around busy mama — has me covered with one […]
A new meta-analysis from PLOS Medicine is casting doubt on the theory that 50 percent of those with COVID-19 are asymptomatic, showing that four out of five with the virus display symptoms.
Since my pregnancy losses, most of which were unexplained and all of which were described as “incredibly unlucky,” I have had ongoing health anxiety.
“I’ve seen many, many patients with this, even 100 days after being infected,” one doctor says.
Loneliness isn’t always easy to spot because it’s not the same as being alone. Physical symptoms can include a runny nose and difficulty sleeping.
I clicked on the results from my COVID-19 test and thought, “Yep. You caught the ‘Rona.” Now that I’ve officially got it, I’m happy to share my experience.
All of the Vanderpump pregnancies are enough to make you wonder if they can spread among friend groups.
