This is embarrassing and TMI...sorry.
I will be giving birth any day now. I have a huge hemorrhoid! I'm assuming it's due to hormones because I don't really strain and I've been taking a stool softener. Things are moving...but I am SOOOOO swollen "down there" in general, all over. With my first pregnancy, I wasn't swollen down there. So, this time, I have no idea what will happen with my swollen tissues! My labia feel like they could explode at any moment with any extra pressure. But, I'm especially worried about this hemorrhoid! It seems like it would just rip right off in the process of birth! Anyone else give birth with a big hemorrhoid? What happened to it? Did it go down within a few weeks afterward? I'm sure pushing the baby out will at least exascerbate the issue. What happened to your swollen tissues like the labia? I reeeeaallly hope it goes away as my hormones change after pregnancy. I've tried creams, suppositories, soaking, using ONLY my portable bidet washlet and no toilet paper wiping. He simply is not going away and I just have to accept that he will be attending the birth.
