    Holy crap, you guys. Two words: FACIAL HAIR

    What the heck should I do? I keep reading conflicting things about waxing, shaving seems like it would just make it worse, and creams are a no-no.

    I wax and had no problems, but I have always done it. Def not to shave and creams I think would irritate. What do you normally do?

    I normally don't have any issues with unwanted facial hair. But now that I'm pregnant, I definitely do!

    Waxing seems like the best way to go. I'm just not sure if I should get a kit and do it myself, or if I should get it done professionally.

    I always find professional a bit aggressive although they get results. I use veet facial wax strips or superdrug do a really good cheaper version. Make sure you get the facial ones and warm properly between your hands first. It works really well for me.
    My first pregnancy my facial hair stopped and it was great for 9 months not to have to worry, but this one it seems to be constantly growing!!!:blush:

    Most pregnancy-related facial hair goes away within 6 months of the baby's birth. :)
