  • Just do it, you'll feel sooo much better. Its so common during pregnancy so there is nothing to be embarrassed about.

  • If your husband is going to be there for the birth of your child, he will see things far worse than hemmorhoids! Not to mention that you got the hemmorhoids carrying HIS child, so why would he laugh at you?! Anyway, they are pretty common in pregnant women, you can always talk to your OB about them. Tucks pads work really good, they will probably go away after you have the baby.

  • My dad is an OB. Buy ANUSOL. I don't know why but it's different from Prep H. Just go buy it. It's not unusual.

  • This is easy.

    You're going to need lots of tucks pads when you're recovering from labor. Tell your hubby, you want to stock up now before all the chaos of a new baby, and add it to a shopping list for him to get soon.

  • You know what, your carrying your hubbys baby, and its to be expected with the hemmoroids. He shouldnt laugh at you because you are the mothe rof his child and quite frankly no man knows what we pregnant woman have to deal with. Just be honest and tell him. You two love eachother and I think he would want the mother of his child to be comfortable and should do whatever to make you feel good. Suck it up and tell him, you will be relieved. I hope you feel better and everything works out for you. :)
