  • Funny, I've been wondering that myself... Never had this issue with my son, but with this pregnancy (26 weeks along) I find myself straining and it almost feels like the baby drops down somewhat... I look forward to the answers :-)

  • not bad for the baby but puching to hard can cause hemmeriods and be uncomfortable for you. Try a stool softener and that might help call your doc for recomendations on what is safe to take.
