Pregnancy Can Be A Pain in the Butt. Get the Gift of #ahhh with the #HemoclinComfortKit {giveaway}

For the record, I desperately wanted to get pregnant, and so of course I was delighted to be carrying and growing my sweet boy inside me. But I was a miserable pregnant woman. I didn't have anything really serious happen to me or Boo, but every little annoying symptom or side effect of pregnancy - I had them all!

The aches and pains, inability to stay awake in the first trimester, inability to stay asleep in the third, constant peeing (and dribbling). I think most of us experience those. We can all commiserate. But nosebleeds? Who knew! I never had them in my life, and suddenly woke up with blood pouring down my face every morning for part of my second trimester.  Food cravings I knew about, but for me it was food aversions. I struggled with an aversion to food in general through the first 5 months and eventually had to start medication so I could eat. I wasn't throwing up, but I had to force-feed myself and fight down my gag reflex at every meal. For any food. It was nuts. Acne. Impetigo. Crazy back problems that required a brace for months. I was not the lovely. glowing mom-to-be I had hoped.

And then there were other problems. Private, painful, itchy problems. They weren't new to me, but they certainly were worse than they'd ever been. Hemorrhoids. Yup. One of the many less glamourous aspects of pregnancy, experienced by so many expectant moms. Lucky me, I've had them all my life. I was diagnosed at the age of 16, after lots of tests to rule out any more frightening causes of the blood appearing where it shouldn't be. I've dealt with them forever, but many women experience the itch and burn and pain for the first time during what is supposed to be the happiest time of their lives.

What's a girl to do?

HemoClin is here to help. HemoClin is a topical treatment - a clear, water-based gel that delivers no pain, no mess, and no stains. It works fast and effectively by providing a cooling relief from anal discomforts. This is achieved with a patented 2QR complex Bio-Active blocker derived from the Aloe Vera plant that works with the body's natural bacteria.

Doesn't that sound good? A key word there for me is "cooling." Have you ever applied aloe vera gel to a sunburn? You know how good that feels. So just imagine if you needed to combat that sort of burning, itching feeling in a much more delicate spot than your forearm. There is not much worse than feeling the urgent need to scratch your behind in public. HemoClin will help keep that embarrassing need at bay.

The water-based formulation is also lubricating, so going to the bathroom is much less painful. Really, once you combine the constipation many of us experience with pregnancy with the pain of hemorrhoids, any trip to the loo can become a nightmare.

I feel like I've come out of the closet to some extent here, but I am in my 40s and beyond shame. Ha! This topic shouldn't be so embarrassing. This is something that happens; it hurts; and we should talk about it so we can help each other with information and support.
