Woman stuns as she shows how her nose 'triples in size' when she's pregnant – and she's not the only one | The Sun

A WOMAN has left people stunned after showing how her nose "triples in size" when she's pregnant.

Alex Jacobson took to TikTok to share a video in which she explained the phenomenon that happened during her first pregnancy.

"So in my first pregnancy I couldn’t wear my wedding rings, even in my second trimester and especially not the third.

"And I feel like I just swelled a lot in general.

"Like, I got the worst ‘pregnancy nose’ my first pregnancy."

Showing a picture of herself in the hospital bed directly after giving birth, she added: "This was my face right after I’d given birth.

"Literally my whole face felt swollen, my nose felt huge."

But Alex added that as she was "almost 30 weeks pregnant" in her second pregnancy, she was hoping it was a "sign that my nose isn’t going to triple in size this time".

However, it seems she spoke too soon.

She later returned to TikTok to share a video that showed how her nose had started to spread, as she wrote: "It's beginning."
