... my lovely pile, which poppedout after birth of dd, has reappeared: just before i'm due with pg2!!!!! It couldn't even wait until after i'd popped dc2 out! I'm mortified.. i'm going to have some poor midwife staring at all the usual stuffthat they won't bat an eyelid about, and then a big bobbly grape wobbling about on my arse!!!! Please tell me they've seen this all before and it won't make any student mw's snort with laughter!! I am sooooo embarrased and peeved!!! Why couldn't itr have waited till dc2 arrived????

Same thing happened to me. The MW have seen it all before (but not DH who thought it was the head coming out wink)

lol at needahand's dh.

The midwives will not bat an eyelid at one grape. They'll have seen bunchs of grapes many times.

Ah, thankyou, my pinchy arse is feeling better and less shameful already!

Och yes, seen it all before! LOL. Poor you though, they're not pleasant are they. Your midwife may actually (with your consent) pop it back in for you after the birth after your perineum has been checked. If she doesn't suggest it, you could ask. It can make it slightly more comfortable. Are you puttig anything on it just now?

Er, no! Bascally, i'm due tomorrow, so am thinking, what's point of trying to get back to it's original spot when it will more than likely appear during birth? grin

It is one of the few things i cannot bear touching or going near, dh tidied up my lady garden for the birth last night and i screamed at im when i thought he was getting too close to my pile blush

had this after dd was biorn and doctor advised i could put something on it or it might sort itself out, which it (obviously temporarily) did, so was going to wait til after dc2 arrives to try and deal wth it!

Any suggestiuons that won't involcve me being too squeamish? smile

Well putting something like anusol on it will certainly not shrink it overnight but it might give you some relief. As I said, get the midwife to pop it back in after the birth. Good luck.
