I don't shave anywhere normally. I use an epilator on my legs and underarms, and get a brazillian wax every 4 weeks. Been doing it for years - I've always gotten really bad ingrown hairs when I shave, and honestly waxing/epilating doesn't hurt. The first time there were a few "owww" moments, but as long as you keep doing it, the hair doesn't get a deep seated root when it grows back and it comes out a lot easier.
But since getting pregnant, my skin is crazy sensitive. I haven't been able to epilate or wax. I've resorted to shaving my legs, and just letting the brazillian area go completely feral, lol. I was hardly shaving my legs more than once every couple of weeks, but now that it's warm enough for dresses and shorts I'll probably start shaving at least once a week. As far as the other area...DH hasn't shown any interest in going anywhere near there since January...so I'm not terribly fussed that it looks like a jungle.
I'm really hoping that my skin goes back to normal after the baby comes and I can go back to my normal routine.
Funny side note - with my last pregnancy, I didn't have this sensitive skin issue, and I was able to get a brazillian just two weeks before giving birth. My mother showed up unexpectedly and stayed for the main event...needless to say she was absolutely shocked when she saw my lack of hair down there. She actually asked me, during labour, what happened to all my hair! So embarrassing. I don't think she'd ever even heard of a brazillian wax!
