glad I'm not the only one who thought John Ross and Sue Ellen look alike.

I have never heard of nosebleeds being a symptom of pregnancy, either.

Me either. My wife has made it almost all the way through without one too.

So, I was surprised by that twist. I was thinking it was brain cancer or something.
According to WebMD:

Early Signs Of Pregnancy

Nowhere on this list is nosebleeds.
Google "Nosebleeds during pregnancy."

For example.

"During" being the operative word. The show treated it as if it were an indicator of pregnancy, which it is not.

You know, WebMD is useful, but it's not an exhaustive commentary.

Google "Nosebleeds indicator pregnancy."

Ahem

Some of the less common early pregnancy signs are:
There are women who experience implantation bleeding. Any bleeding during a pregnancy can be worrisome, but implantation bleeding that occurs 3 to 6 days after fertilization is no cause for worry.
Got that ‘I am Pregnant’ feeling? Women often have an intuitive knowledge of being pregnant
A stuffy or clogged nose or even nose bleeds early in pregnancy is something that may be experienced by some women.
Some women experience the growth of facial hair and develop facial pigmentation.
The appearance of spider veins is another of the less usual pregnancy symptoms.
Some women experience excessive salivation and this can exacerbate feelings of nausea. A metallic taste in the mouth may have a similar effect. Some women even find that they drool in their sleep.
Some women experience cramping in their legs.
Some women for the first time in their life will experience Restless Legs Syndrome during their pregnancy.
In that Google search, just on the first page, there at least 3 sites I can find that say in the summary itself that nosebleeds can occur early in pregnancy.

If you want to quibble about it as an "indicator" or not, that's up to you, but I don't think that distinction is going to get by a physician.

Fine, how about I just stick with the three women I grew up with who all had children and never bled from the nose before or during the pregnancies? That okay with you?

I've been pregnant... a lot. And have lots of friends who have been. Never heard of bleeding nose issues.

I think you can almost always find a list somewhere of side-effects for anything that will include even the rarest issues.

In other words, somewhere on the internet is information that will support any argument, valid or not.

So, how 'bout that new Dallas?

Not crazy about the new kids. One of them being pregnant and suffering from nosebleeds isn't changing my mind about that.

Re: The All-New DALLAS!

Well, we have (I think) four more episodes this season to warm up to them before the break. I'm liking John Ross & Elena the most (not necessarily together, but those two characters).

Any ideas when S2 will start? We'll most likely get a split season and therefore (what Dallas made very popular) two cliffhangers.

I'll tell you, I'll have more respect for John Ross if he manages to get himself out of the three-way excrement sandwich JR left him in.

And I just can't bring myself to care about Elena. They're trying too hard to make her the good girl we're supposed to pity.

Re: The All-New DALLAS!

^ It's really up to the writers to make that happen re: John Ross.

BTW, the name in your sig is something I've always thought would be a good answer to the crossword clue "ducky president".

There's only three episodes left.

Re: The All-New DALLAS!

Wow, how was that for an ending last night, with the cops coming for John Ross? Really loved yesterday's episode — a hint as to what's eating Ann, a scene with Lucy that was finally worth Charlene Tilton's time (as fun as it is to see her and Steve Kanaly pop up at Southfork parties), and the expression on John Ross' face when he sees Marta dead on top of the car just as he's coming out of the hotel... the new Dallas has finally hit its stride.
