  • You may have to get yourself a stool softener from the doctor.Bleeding that much is not good, but, hemoroids do that to you or a lot of women when pregnant. Its the pressure. I know it does hurt like crazy too.Tell your doctor how bad it is,and see what they say. He may give you something that will help. kids are a pain in the butt, aren't they☺ JK

  • Try buying some witch hazel pads ( usually called tucks or hemroid pads) a the grocery store. Stick them in the fridge and when you go to the bathroom wipe your rear with them. They will not cure it but they definitly make them feel MUCH better. Also you can take a sitz bath: put about six inches of water in the tub ( not warm not cold just comfortable....better on the cool side though you don't want it to hot) sit down and kind of spread your cheeks apart for about 20 minutes. Definitly ask your doc for some stoll softeners because straining is only going to make them worse...but so can diearhea so be careful! Lol, sorry about so much information, hope you feel better :( Life sucks with hemroids
