    Shaving your legs when you are nine months pregnant is soooo difficult, it should be categorised as an Olympic sport.

    I completely gave up trying to do mine... I'll worry about it once I've had the baby I think as I don't trust OH near me with a razor - I've seen the mess he makes of his face. lol

    I`m struggling now at 7½ months. :o

    My legs have gotten abit bigger so it`s gettin hard to lift them.

    I can`t cross them fully anymore, cause of the amount of fat behind my knee. :(

    Getting outta the bath is getting hard too! It`s like lifting a ten tonne lorry :rofl:

    Oh i remember the days well haha.

    I didnt trust OH so i made my mother do them for me lol
    And if i did them myself it took ages, once i remember shaving my legs for a good 20/25 minutes, it just took so long to get to everywhere :(

    I affectionally refer to it as my "circus act".

    Lady garden is a no go zone right now. Thank God I don't have an OH.

    I seem to struggle just getting in and out of the bath... going anywhere below my armptis with a razor is just a no-hope for me now!! I was thinking of asking DH to assist with the 'lady overgrown wilderness' nearer the time for the sake of the birth pics but not sure if im brave enough!!
    The glamour of it all!!

    When I was pg, I couldnt do it myself and since I was to nervous to have my husband do it, I used Veet on my legs and instead of useing the little plastic razor it comes with I used a wash cloth to just wipe it clean in the shower, and if I missed anything the hair will fall off when I dried my legs with a towel. You could also use Nair

    well I've just about had it with shaving my legs. I can't do it in the tub anymore and its killer having to stand in the shower bending sideways.
    It takes a lot out of me just climbing out of the tub. I feel like I'm training for something.
    Though since I don't have a bf or anything, I've appointed my sister to the job of shaving my legs. LOL I'm 6'2" so I say she has her work cut out for her!
