    I had this pre-pregnancy and it is horrible:( It helped me to put some ice on it, which is uncomfortable but will make the swelling go down, which I think is what puts the pressure on the nerves and makes it hurt so much. Also drink a lot of water, the more hydrated you are the better.

    I have to use glycerin suppositories every once in a while even with high fiber cereals and lots of water. I buy the infant ones they are thinner and work just fine. They make you go really fast but try and hold it in for at least 20 minutes and it lubes up everything that's in there so it slides right out... It's a quick fix but not permanent so you will still need softners. It might warrant a call to your doc or midwife to see if they are fine for you to use but my doc recommends them for a quick fix when things get painful or plugged up as there is nothing in them besides glycerin and they don't make you go continuously like a laxative

    Oh you poor thing. I had it with my last baby when I was 30-odd weeks pregnant. I was SO scared to go to the toilet. Before I got a prescription for suppositories (which I suspect you will need) and cream, I took a bottle of warm water into the toilet with me, and kinda poured it on as I went (GROSS!!!!). It did help to soothe it a little bit. Give it a go. I'm so scared of having it back again.

    Hope you are OK. You're doing the right thing getting checked out and the creams/suppositories work SO quickly. xx

    Get some preperation h or tucks. Those will help reduce swelling and help with the pain
