Piles!! 😩


Has anyone ever or does anyone suffer(ed) with piles/haemorrhoids during pregnancy?
I developed them from about 20 weeks ish. I'm now 35 weeks and they are worse and very uncomfortable.
This is baby number 3. I've had 2 previous natural births that went fine...ish. My first was born at 37+5 and my second at 37 weeks. As I am fast approaching delivery I'm finding I'm becoming increasingly scared of going in to labour. All because of these damn haemorrhoids.
Because they are so uncomfortable and sometimes hurt after poos. I'm really scared of pushing in labour.
Has anyone previously experienced this. I need to hear how bad it can be but also reassurance.

Thanks in advance!

Yup. Got them with my first and 2 hours of pushing just made them even worse... I was really worrying about them and even though they were v bad after labour they improved quite quickly. They're bad again now but I'm trying not to worry about it based on past experience. Last time I was given pain relief after labour as a suppository which helped ease immediate discomfort.

You'll be fine I'm sure and in the moment you won't think about them.

What happened post birth? How bad were they?
Thank you for replying!
I really don't want it putting me off labour and pushing as they were the worst stages in my previous labours!

If I'm totally honest for the first few days the pain from them was worse than from my stitches! But totally manageable. And they just gradually got smaller. There's been 5 years between my two and I've had occasional issues from them (some mild bleeding and discomfort) but overall I've been totally fine until I got heavily pregnant again.

Don't let it put you off pushing - like I said I had 2 hours of pushing with my first, and whilst it definitely did make them worse as soon as baby is out, they'll start to improve.

I had them but they seem to have gone away. (and I haven't gone into labor yet) I'm not sure why they went away as I'm pretty much just as constipated as ever; I always have to strain a lot. I did start eating Shreddies most mornings. (which has a ton of fiber) I've heard baths help too to promote blood flow and healing and I take lots of those. Maybe try something like that?

Preparation H is my best friend after birth !! It's so nasty but I have to use the little attachment thing and actually stick it up inside to feel any relief. I also use tucks pads to wipe every time I pee. That gives some relief
