I did lol but I kept it trim all through out just as I do day-to-day life! If you don't do it anyways then it wouldn't matter. I had 3 weekly appointments from about 32 weeks and kept it trim for every appointment just in case they kept me in and induced me! (They did with no warning at 37 weeks!)

I trimmed mine a little as I figured they may end up shaving it for me otherwise and I also think it is more hygenic for when baby arrives, I wouldn't want to enter the world with a face full of bush hair in my face lol,,,,just kidding,,,I'm sure baby doesn't mind really. I just thought I'd trim it myself to save nurses doing it. I prefer to trim down there rather than shave.

For us ladies on here that are a bit "older", I agree with andella; in that all of this shaving seems a bit odd.

It bothers me that young girls and women are being taught that the natural appearance of their genital area is "dirty" and must be made "clean" by shaving. When in fact, the hair is there to keep bacteria from your inner genitals.

My husband and I are both content with our "natural" appearances; in fact many men I know and women, that are a bit older, are kind of creeped out by the "barbie" look, as it's also prepubescent looking in nature and makes some men feel a bit like pedophiles. I understand that may seem insulting and I don't mean it to be, because a young man in his 20's may have only encountered the "shaved" ones and the pedophile connection may not occur to him. To an older man, the porn he saw as a child, and his first sexual experiences were with unshaven women, with the hair being a representation of "womanhood."

I had been shaving before I fell pregnant just cos thats how I liked it. I didn't keep up with it in pregnancy though and just let it grow as it was too much hassle with a bump! Its weird though once you're in labour you really don't care who sees what etc I was actually really surprised how little you care about it when you're in labour and the midwives really wouldn't care I'm sure they've seen much worse haha.

yes i can totally see what you're saying.... i guess its just the way things are now in this image obsessed world.

make up, hair dye, false eyelashes, fake tans, fake nails, shaving, waxing, epilating, it goes on and on.

for me though having a neat and tidy lady garden is the same as keepin my hair (on my head) tidy, just makes me feel that little more tidy and presentable but yes i can see why some ppl would want to leave it natural too, each to their own. Xx

I attempted shaving a week before I had him. Very blotchy, and razor burn so by the time I gave birth the bumps went away and the hair was very very short. I didnt care about it during birth anyways though. Even with my sister, husband, best friend, cousin, mother and 5 doctors all looking at him coming out.
