Having kids is a blessing, but the toll it takes on our bodies can feel like a curse. Your belly — and ankles, and more! — stretches and swells to house that bundle of joy and then contracts to push her out. No wonder we end up with stretch marks, hemorrhoids, and very sensitive, um, parts. Here’s how it happens: Your growing uterus puts pressure on your veins. The result?

Common in the third trimester when the extra enlarged uterus is exerting the most pressure on the veins, hemorrhoids are the last thing you want to be dealing with as you prepare for baby.
