i hear ya honey!

i swear i almost considered not having another baby b/c i was afraid for my butt! AND i know mine were not that bad. yeah, they swole up after giving birth then they went down but ya know, my butt has never been the same. i was so worried about my hoo-haw but it went right back to the way it was as far as i could tell.

i dunno what makes em better cept maybe all bran every day and traumeel is supposed to help. homeopathic cream. i never tried tucks but it seems some ppl swear by em.

hugs to ya. you'll get thru the birth and it'll be worth it in the end to have that cutie little baby.

Im due in November but stepping in here. Ive had the worse hemroids this time around. I remember having them with my first pregnancy too, but I dont think they were this bad. Ive had big ones & I have one this week that Im literally scared to go to the bathroom

I feel your pain mama!! Also soak in a tub w/baking soda, but get in the tub as the water is running because its the moving water & the baking soda that helps

I understand, mine have been much worse this time around and it can be so horrible. Do you have a peri bottle? I have found lately that just using that instead of wiping helps a lot. I have never tried the creams or anything, but I have heard they help a lot. Hang in there, you are almost done and hopefully they will not get much worse when the baby is born.

cotton balls soaked in witch hazel or tucks pads straight out of the fridge and leave them until they aren't cold!! It's been a life saver!

Mine are pretty bad too. I feel like crying everytime I poop!

Have you tried witch hazel pads? (they are sold as Tucks, but you can get generic brands, too) They are my saving grace.

Hang in there. I know, they hurt!

I had my dh pick up "one of everything for butts" so I have quite the assortment of stuff. So far the cream is helping the best. I've just been getting in the tub 12 times a day with super hot water and lavendar eo. It seems to be helping. Everything I'm eating is upsetting my tummy too, so I'm just a big mess. I told baby to come now, but she's just not listening!
