It is commoner in pregnancy. You could have the bleeding area cauterised.

Hi Lynna,
Yes its normal - it is due to the increased high amount of blood in your system due to the pregnancy. I am also 26 weeks and when i brush my teeth and i " spit"  the toothpaste out there is blood.
Good luck for the rest..
