A nose fracture 14 years ago is not the cause of your presents symptoms. Unless you have a predisposition to fingers turning blue in chilly weather (Raynaud's phenomenon) and are spending too much time outside these days or can think of a recent blow to the nose, you MAY have had bleeding under the skin. Why? this is why we have doctors. I would urge you to see you OB to make sure this is not part of something more serious affecting you and your baby.
