I'm currently 13+2 and wondering if I might have developed hemorrhoids already? I was hoping if anyone has experienced them before while pregnant and can advise on what they felt like?
The things which have got me wondering:-
1. I seem to be going for a #2 more often than usual and sometimes wake up feeling like I need to go.
2. I had a poo Monday and bled for no apparent reason (from my bum).
3. When I sit down it feels vaguely painful in my rectum - like there's a big poo in there (can't believe I'm writing this)
4. About an hour or so ago I got really intense pain in my rectum and abdomen. I explained it to my DH as not sure if I need a poo, a fart or to throw up. I've been laying in bed since, with the cat as a hot water bottle substitute, and it's subsiding but when I move I get a stabbing pain in my arse.
Well done if you've read this far - that's all pretty gross.
Does it feel itchy at all? I've suffered a bit but not too badly. I've found that sitting in a warm bath for 15 minutes before bed REALLY helps and wear big knickers! Cleared it up quite quickly. Hope it helps a little!
