It totally sucks. And with DS, they only got worse after the 45 minutes of pushing through the vaginal delivery. I have that in the back of my mind- ugh!
I will say, though, that apparently I had it easy because the day after having DS, the nurse came in to check on me and I told her my only discomfort was the hemis. She asked if I minded if she took a look, which of course I didn't mind at that point lol. She took a peak and was like "oh that's NOTHING!". I felt like they were horrible, so I can't imagine what some women go through!!!!
Last week I could barely sit, walk or stand it was near unbearable.. After prescription cream and a few hot baths they finally got a smidge better.. If they are worse after delivery, I may freak out...
MrsHark122:Have you ladies had any bleeding with yours?
I just recently started to have bleeding but the weird thing is they don't hurt. Maybe it's because they are internal.
Yes- a lot...mine are external and they were awful.. the day after I started using the prescription they were bleeding. I talked to my MIL who is a nurse and she said that bleeding was a good thing because they were draining as long as it didn't last too long or else I would have to go have them quarterized (sp.) I know TMI - I don't know how bad your bleeding is but apparently its kinda normal..
hope this helps.
Yes, I bleed enough with mine to make the toilet water red. The doctor told me that it doesn't take money blood droplets to do that. I am not too uncomfortable, so I'm just taking it easy for now.
Funny story though (tmi?)- DS waltzed in the bathroom while I was going the other day (since privacy is a thing of the past lol). He wanted to flush for me when I was done and he goes "Bye poopoo! Bye blood!"
