Pregnancy: Hemorrhoids & You
There is nothing too embarassing to chat about here. Have any of you urbanMamas experienced hemorrhoids during pregnancy?
This is a slightly embarrassing question to discuss, but 30 weeks into my second pregnancy, I'm dealing with terrible hemorrhoids (I also had them with my first). They are really awful this time, and I've discussed with my OB the possibility of having surgery for them after this baby is born. He has given me the usual recommendations about prevention (diet, OTC treatments, etc) which I am following, but they never really went away after baby #1, and I'm feeling like it's even worse this time around and tired of dealing with this painful issue. Do any mamas have experience with the actual surgery to correct this problem? Any doctor that you used in Portland that was good?
