  • I havent realised that change

  • Think it’s possible, but shouldn’t be a concern.

  • Noses can definitely widen during pregnancy. Especially when you’re carrying a girl. But it all subsides after birth.
    The more realistic reason here would be age. It’s a no coincidence you’re also getting older. Noses never stop growing unfortunately. I’ve noticed a change in mine and many of my friends in our late 30s

  • I thought noses and ears continued to get bigger as we age. I can’t imagine how big my nose will be by the time I’m in my seventies.

  • yes i sometimes feel like mine isnt as small as it once was before kids.

  • Maybe that’s why my glasses don’t sit comfortably on the bridge of my nose like they used to. They feel tight.

  • I haven’t heard of nose, but my feet are definitely bigger now.
    I know ears keep growing as we age, maybe the same for nose?

  • I’ve never heard of this but suppose anything is possible. Definitely agree about nose and ears getting larger in older people though.

  • Oh I was actually just diagnosed with an under developed frontal sinus and keep having chronic infections that could be it!

  • If your nose doesn’t look the same 1 1/2 years after pregnancy, it probably won’t change. I have seen women’s noses widen during pregnancy (especially with female fetuses), but this typically subsides as your weight goes back to the pre-pregnancy state.

  • I agree with the comment about feet appearing bigger too.

  • Ive heard that peoples feet get bigger so could be similar with noses.

  • Webmed says there are 18 conditions associated with nasal bloating or congestion… wow… hope you find an answer and if anything is wrong get it sorted.

  • Noses do appear longer as you get older! Sometimes swelling may be sinuses?

  • I hope youre not telling little fibs like pinnochio! Its hard the leftovers of pregnancy. Its all acceptable during pregnancy. Any weight still sitting around may require dietery changes like cutting out white bread pasta pastries. Tumeric is antinflammatory. some sprinkled in water if you can tolerate it. or some in a banana milkshake to disguise taste.
