  • I didn't get them during my 1st pregnancy, but had them during my 2nd pregnancy. They were so awful! I didn't get them until the last month or so.

  • I didn't get them until the last month of my first pregnancy. I'm pregnant with my second, and I suspect I'll get them sooner. I recommend taking care of your bum-- buy those cottonelle wet wipes that flush, and use them to wipe. The less irritated your bum, the better off you'll be!

  • didnt get them with my first baby but got them with my second child and now pregnant with my thrid at 24weeks and have gotten them this time around to. SUCKS! All i can say to you is try not to get constipated and dont strain to use the bathroom and hopefully you will be ok. some women get them durring the pushing state of labor though. Good luck hope for your sake you dont get them.
