Never welcome at the best of times, haemorrhoids are pesky pregnancy party crashers.
They commonly appear due to the added pressure of baby on the veins in the pelvis. Plus the hormone progesterone causes the walls of the veins to relax, which allows them to swell a lot easier.
A complete PITA, they can cause discomfort, swelling, itching and burning. Not to mention kill your pregnancy glow mojo.
For some women they appear for the first time (or worsen) after they've pushed a baby out. Particularly if its a prolonged second stage.
