You at 23 weeks
Some pregnant women develop piles (haemorrhoids). Piles are swellings containing enlarged blood vessels inside or around your bottom (the rectum and anus).
Piles can happen to anyone, pregnant or not, and can be very uncomfortable. They can happen when you're pregnant because hormones make your veins relax, but there are ways to ease piles in pregnancy.
Tiredness and lack of sleep are common in pregnancy. There are plenty of things you can do to help yourself sleep, including using pillows to support your growing bump.
