Sometimes allergies will cause swelling in the upper bridge of the nose, do you think this could be the case?

does it cause pain? have you notice a reduction in your ability to smell? does it slightly fluctuate in size? do you sneeze more often?
if you answered yes to all but the first one it sounds what I have.... its not dangerous but if it gets obstructive it can be removed- however it does grow back. I have been told that a contributing factor is where I live....

well I didnt notice it till last night, but my allergies have been crazy since im 5 months pregnant and cannot take my medicine.
I have been sneezing like crazy and stuffy all night and the dryness makes my nose bleed everyday and that is why I was looking up my nose last night
was to see how irritated it looked when I noticed on the right side what looked like a swollen mucel chunk in my view
it doesnt look normal

Nasal congestion and stuffiness are very common with pregnancy. If you are not experiencing any nasal blockages or difficulty breathing, I would recommend that you call your doctor now and let him/her know about it and see whether he/she would like to see you now or wait till next visit to take a look at it, but your doctor has to be notified about this and the daily bleeding.
Thank you very much for using our website http://doctorslounge. com and I hope that this information helped.
