Oh My... Tonight I shaved my legs in the shower and it was so hard! My belly did not like the way I was moving.

How do you shave?

I put one leg up on the wash cloth bar and keep one leg down, it works for me! Thank God I only shave my thighs once in a while, thats the hard part. Now shaving my private parts is tricky, I just put the razor over there and pray I dont shave off one of my "lips" since I cant see it at all, lol...........

I do the same thing as above. One leg down and one leg up, to do legs. For my "girl bits", I have to use a mirror, so I don't shave off something I would like to keep. LOL Some women have their husband's shave them, but no stinking way am I letting mine do that!! I don't know that I trust him enough.

My shower is in our big clawfoot tub so I put one leg up on the side of the tub and that seems to work OK. I was able to do a decent job this week that way. As for my girly bits, I did have DH give me a trim a few weeks ago but I don't recommend it, he totally cut my labia!! Can you say 'ouch!'????

Fortunately I'm very fair and don't have a crazy jungle going on down there anyway so I'm not that worried about it, since I haven't been able to see if for a Loooooooooooooong time.

If I shave which to be honest isn't often I just bend over or take a bath as I get further along. I don't do it often as I am on pelvic rest so kinda figure whats the point
Isn't pregnancy fun!?

I asked DH the other day if he would shave me if it got to that point and he said yes but I am not really sure if I would want him too.

Thanks girls! By November I may just look like the cats

I just put one leg up on the side of the tub. I'm 100% Italian and have to shave, bleech, wax (depended on where on my body) a lot. I shave my legs and bikini area everyday...no joke. So, it's something I've gotten used to and just find a way to do.

With my second son, however, once I was in labor I made my husband shave "downstairs" for me...I was slightly embarassed but I just couldn't see anything and the contractions were awful...so I broke down and let him do it...'cause I would have been more embarassed to have my doctor see me unshaven. lol

LOL Shaving, its a chore now for sure! My legs, I kind of shift baby over to the opposite side of whichever side Im trying to reach to. My girl bits, Im quite good at shaving my bikini line by feel, and as for trimming, I bought a razor that has a battery operated trimmer that is totally safe, no niks no cuts, its fantastic. Makes things much easier when you cant see. And its always a surprise this way, to what it will look like, when I finish showering and check it out in the mirror! haha

I am very fair and only have to shave my legs up to my knees, so I just put one leg on the edge of the tub. As for my bikini area, I wax. It is getting very difficult to do.
