I felt so lucky to not deal with the morning sickness at all during my first trimester. Then I've had this relatively tiny bump pretty much my whole pregnancy. I've had no heartburn, no high blood pressure, no GD. I've had a relatively easy pregnancy.
But I seem to randomly have some of the most mortifying pregnancy symptoms as a way of making up for my "good fortune".
The latest? Random hemorrhoids. Like seriously RANDOM. Today it's decided to pop up pretty badly...and I didn't even have a bowel movement this morning! WTH?!?
Has this happened to anyone else? Unwarranted hemorrhoids?!? Geez, if they're this bad already and they are coming on with no trigger, I can only imagine what kind of horrid pain I'm going to be in after delivery!!!
Any of you ladies have any tried and tested remedies??
I got them with my first pregnancy - the first one showed up on Christmas morning that year - what a sweet gift from baby
I 2nd the Preparation H wipes, and I also used some other wipes I got at the pharmacy - witch hazel I think.
I bought the Prep H wipes for Her with Witch Hazel. My mom said she got pretty bad ones during pregnancy, and she suggested applying a HOT (as hot as you can stand) wash cloth to the area for about 30 min at a time throughout the day (re-heating when it cools down).
I'm not entirely sure this would be OK to do during pregnancy, so I'll need to ask the doctor, but it's a good thing to keep in mind for afterward.
I found that the Charmin moist toilet paper made it much easier to keep everything clean. When I asked about them at one of my appointments they just said that if you didn't get them before the baby gets here you're almost guaranteed to get them during delivery.I haven't had to use it yet, but I bought a Sitz Bath on Amazon to use for after delivery.
