    Just wondered what u guys are planning on doing 4 the big day..
    Legs and toosht wise..:blush: I havent really bothered doing much shaving of my legs throughout my preg - 4 more than one reason 1 being its so hard to shave past my bump and the other being i dont like doing it too much as i get bad exzema on my legs and when i shave it gets worse...
    And then down there i havnt been able to get completley as i cant c past the bump and miss alot lol:blush: Up until now i was always planning on getting my OH to do it 4 me but i just dont no if i can be bothered sitting in diff possitions i get 2 uncomfortable 2 quickley. I no it looks like i have no pride in myself at all but i just dont no what to do - i wont be getting a wax down anywhere i never have done and never will lol im too much of a woose... R u guys bothering with it all? I dont supppose im goin 2 look that great when given birth anyway lol

    Glad you asked this, I'm wondering it too.. I haven't bothered as much shaving legs and foof (lol) as it's too much hassle... I can't see what I'm doing anproust cut myself.. Ouch!! So odd time things have been getting shaved OH has done it for me lol. But I dunno weather t keep up to date with it cause I dont want them thinking anything if my legs or foof isn't shaved properly haha... :/

    I have been quite shameful in the old shaving dept all pregnancy to be honest. Closer to time I'll prob get hubby to give me a quick trim and a shave up to the knees lol

    or I might just not bother lol

    def won't be 'shaving down to the wood' as I think it is gonna be sore enough down there without an itchy shaving rash. Maybe just a marine style crew cut hehehehe

    I can still (currently! may well change soon!) manage my legs, with some contortion, and I'll probably tidy up down below with an electric shaver nearer the time - I'm very hairy down there normally, and with pregnancy as well... it's like a jungle! I figure the MW needs to see what she's doing so I'll trim it a bit!

    Heehee mummyinjune I would rather a midwife thought I was a bit grotty than have jaggy bits postpartum.

    Comfort over style.....that's my philosophy hahaha :)

    Thanks for posting this! Makes me feel good i'm not the only one worried about this! I think my plan will be to nair my legs and trim the rest up with an electric razor. I would love to go get waxed but the idea makes me uncomfortable :(

    Have you tried cutting open vit E capsules and mixing it with aloe vera gel for your legs? It helped my friend...:thumbup:

    I dont know where i heard it, but i thought they shaved you at the hospital if you were very hairy down there?! :blush: Or have i just seen that on a silly tv programme?
    With a lot of huffing and puffing i can just about manage to shave my legs properly... I got one of those bush trimmers for my wamwam that keep being advertised and it works quite well... i cant see what i'm doing though :haha:
    Even had problems doing a urine sample the other day cos i couldnt see where to put the pot, but that's a different issue! :blush:
    Thought about waxing but dont want the ingrowing hairs...

    I do once a week or so when I plan on letting OH see (I'd happily never do anything but feels unfair to deprive him completely :blush:) but my skin seems to be extra sensitive now and it just gets a horrible rash not to mention I can't see anything so I miss bits and it's plain frustrating AND I always cut myself quite a lot... ouch!

    I wish I could leave it but I've read that a lot of women keep it tidy right up to labour and I don't want to feel embarrassed with everyone staring. Probably just gonna see on the day whether or not I can be bothered.
