My Mood:

My dr says that once you have ever had them they never really go away. They just get better and then worse again. I never had much issue w/ them during pregnancy but always get them after (like weeks after) who knows. I have them after a C-section. But Dr says that I probably get them because I am slightly dehydrated from BF, and that may be causing hard stools (sorry for the TMI). Anyway, relax when in the bathroom, put your feet on a stool to go (that is what I was told to do when prego to avoid roids), eat lots of whole grains/fruits and veggies, and drink plenty of water. And do the witch hazel thing after they show up, that is the active ingredient in Tucks anyway.

I hope you find out the news you are hoping for, but I don't think this issue has anything to do w/ being pregnant or not.

I didn't think it did, I have never heard anything like that, and was actually more curious just in general than specifically pertaining to me.

I'm stil wondering where it came from, I eat ALL whole grain grain products and loads of veggies...I get plenty of fiber and have had no, er...., bathroom problems.

Thanks ladies
