So I made it to 31 weeks without issue but now they have got me good.

I'm not suffering constipation (go each day and stools not hard so water and fibre not an issue) but the sheer size of my bowel movements is equally painful and impressive.

Tried anusol suppositories for a week but they haven't helped at all. Any recommendations would be appreciated

I've been using the Preparation H gel which is really soothing and stops them hurting (doesn't get rid of them though!)

Germaloids hassle local anaesthetic in it which really helps but you may need them looked at. If they're very painful you could have a thrombosis in one, it's very painful and usually need help subsiding
