Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Is It Hemorrhoids?

I am in my first trimester of my first pregnancy, and lately when I can actually go #2, I notice a small amount of blood on the toilet paper when I wipe. Is it hemorrhoids?

It could be. It could also be a small fissure, which is basically an anal tear. They happen when bowel movements are large and/or difficult to get out, which often happens as a result of the high amount of iron in prenatal vitamins. If you're having pain and/or lots of bleeding you should see your doctor immediately.
