  • Probably hemroids but you should call the on-call at your Dr.'s office just in case.

    Bleeding from the bottom can be an indication of serious internal problems.

  • Was it a difficult BM? It can definitely happen. I wouldn't worry - Fiber Plus Cereal has been a lifesaver for me, and my tush!

  • could be hemmrhoids. were you constipated at all? I would say if its alot of blood you should get it checked out. if it was only on the tissue or seems to have goten better it could just be hemmroids. being pregnant id have it looked at either way.

  • If you strained it could be hemmrhoids or an anal fissure (a crack in your a$$crack from the pressure of straining)...Just let your Dr know-should be fine.

  • I did quite a bit with this pregnancy. But I figured it was the tissue around the anal area getting irritated or torn and I am a bleeder, when I am pregnant,due to my hormones.

  • If you were constipated and it was a tough movement, that's prob what caused the bleeding. Otherwise, it could be hemmoroids, I heard it was common with pregnancy.
