    If your into homeopathic stuff, try hamamelis virginiana. I was skeptical about homeopathy, but desperate, and what do you know? It totally worked... like within a day or two.

    Not pushing. I had hemroids bad about a week before birth. Everytime I had to go, I just "Ahhhh"d it out, letting my body push it out on its own. Sounds weird, but totally worked for me.

    Having the same problem for the last week - have found that fibre and not pushing have helped slightly. Not perfect though :/

    I found the Earth Mama bottom balm pretty soothing...especially straight out of the fridge.

    Also, make some little ice packs (crushed ice in small ziplok baggies) and ice them a few times a day. Make sure you wrap the ice pack in a wet cloth.

    Spend any time you're able lying on your side (left or right, doesn't matter, as long as the weight of your belly is totally off the rest of your body. Or you could lean against a birth/exercise ball so that your belly is hanging down. You need to spend time with the weight of your belly NOT exerting downward pressure on your pelvis.

    If they get really painful, they may be thrombosed, in which case, see your doc and get them lanced. It's not pleasant, but it's quick and provides instant relief (well, you may need to take a painkiller for a few hours, but after that...all better!) Just do not let anyone excise/remove them. Trust me on this.

    oh yikes, that's probably the only ailment I've been lucky enough to avoid with this pregnancy. I hope you find something that helps.

    I liked the little Tucks wipes that you can get at any drug store. Drinking lots of water can help too.

    I know stool softeners aren't natural, but lord, did they make my life better. My issue was that I was constipated, and therefore pushing to go... it wouldn't have been possible NOT to push if I wanted to go- and you know at some point you do feel like you just NEED to go. Once I regularly started taking the stool softeners, I was good to go.
