Thanks for the advice, I'll try elevating my feet.
I am about 39 weeks, and i really do drink enough water, and i get alot of fiber. my stools are usually soft, i don't have hard poops. i havent' seen any blood at all, but i didn't know you could get hemorrhoids higher up, just outside the rectum. i guess it's just the pressure from the baby. and it doesn't happen every time, i forgot to mention, so maybe it's when the baby is in a certain place?
