I had hemorrhoids with my first pregnancy & have them agaain ofcourse now with my second. My first pregnancy I got them around week 28 & they lasted for 2 weeks. This pregnancy they popped up at week 6 and I'm just feeling relief at week 7. I did hot baths & showers 3 times a day to soothe the pain, laying on my side and icing them to reduce swelling. Creams or wipes didn't work for me. Hope this helps.

I had monster Hemorrhoids in both of my pregnancies.  Like golf ball size. I didn't get rid of them in either pregnancy until about two or three weeks after giving birth.  Doc says that's common. good luck
