I haven't posted before, but I have been following along some. I am 39 weeks, 2 days with baby #3. I have just ( about 36 hours ago) developed a hemmorhoid and I am miserable. It hurts to move. I am fine as long as I am sitting in one spot or lying down, but walking and getting up and down is brutal. Any ideas? I should probably do a sitz bath, but frankly, I am not sure I could hoist myself back out afterwards. How long do they last?

Hi christinelin,

I got one about a week ago and it's much better now (but still there, just smaller). I've been using witch hazel pads (like Tucks) and some Prep H. I've gotten them both times after pushing my babies out but never before birth
I'm dreading how bad they are gonna be after the birth.

I've also heard of sitz baths helping but haven't tried them this time. I hope yours goes away soon.
