That looks about right… I read the site you linked to.  As for hemorrhoids, usually women get them long before the delivery.  The weight of the baby contributes to it.  I can’t speak to it specifically (yet), but I think it’s really really common.

I think most of the time everything goes back to normal not too long after birth.  I have a friend who had a baby in November and she’s feeling very normal now.

Sunshine: you’re not the only one that is totally freaked out! For the longest time, I didn’t even want babies because I’m too afraid of pregnancy and giving birth… Now I want some in a couple of years, but I do have to get rid of the fear… I find that reading about it doesn’t make it better for me so I decided to stop, and when I do get pregnant, I’ll take things as they come, I gues…

You poo while giving birth- but the nurses just whisk it away- and you probably won’t notice because it’s numb, naturally or not… all that pushing…..

One thing I was shocked to hear about with actual labor is that they often give you an enima. My mom was telling me, saying you just have to push and can’t exactly control what you’re pushing so sometimes it can result in deficating, which is why they give an enima. She said the first time it freaked her out, but then the next time she went into labor too quickly and wasn’t able to get one, so by the 3rd child she definitely wanted it. Not fun…

Yes, hemorrhoids are very common, but to be honest i NEVER had them with either one of my girls. Not during pregnancy or after birth. I will say having a bowel movement for the first time after birth is really scary.

Sometimes it can hurt, The muscles are still sore (really every thing is still sore). they don’t give enemas any more, they use to believe having a bowel movement would pose a risk of infection. It is very common to go to the bathroom while pushing and they just pull the pad out from under you and replace it.
