  • Probably just hemroids... It's normal. I would also use metamecil ( however you spell it). It's safe and helps me!

  • IT's either hemorrhoids Sharp poops or something worse (my friend was bleeding down there and found out she had colon cancer) so you should get it checked out in my opinion. it could be nothing and most likely is but you dont want to go without finding out. It's better to be safe than sorry :) Good luck

  • pushing too hard instead of letting it get out on its own

  • I have had the same problem... I take the recommended dose (of the plain flavor) of metamucil mixed with orange juice EVERY DAY! It has made life MUCH better! I too had seen a bit of blood, and the doc said that was normal with constipation. I am 17 weeks.
