Anyone getting a belly big enough to have issues with shaving? And I don't mean legs either...hehe.
I know not everyone is into that but for me it's kind of annoying being a bit unkempt in that regard. DH has offered to help me but I'm kind of afraid of a man wielding a razor getting near me! Haha! I mean shaving a face is one thing....the other kind of shaving takes some finesse!

I use a trimmer, and DH helps me with it now that I can't see anything. (It prevents cuts that way, too.) I don't think he particularly enjoys it but it makes me feel better. And I'm growing the baby, so he can suck it up.

Good idea. I tried DH's electric clippers on myself but they bit me a couple times...might be easier if I had him do it. Hey and he's offered, so I should take him up on it.

I use a trimmer too. Lost sight of my vajayjay very recently. My next shave will be interesting. Dh is in no way interested in assisting me! Lol!

Joy...just have him hold a mirror. And yeah, you need a woman's trimmer, lol. Those men-specific ones....no. They hurt.

Joy - I'm totally with you! I can't stand being unkempt down there. So far, I can still see down there...barely. I wouldn't trust my DH to assist either! I'll most likely end up using a mirror like I did at the end. It was hard though!

Great question Joy! I'm haven't quite lost sight yet, but I've been wondering that the heck I'm suppose to do once I can't see what's going on.

I absolutely would not let DH anywhere near there... I've seen his face after shaving.. LOL!! I've just graduated from my straight razor to an electric (though I have managed to cut myself with that too in the past).. and going by "feel" and having to check in the mirror.. it's quite a production!! Not sure what I'm going to do when I'm huge!!

I wouldn't mind going bare if I could see to do it! LOL I can still barely manage, but it involves me contorting myself and having to pause every now and then for a big breath and I feel like I'm squishing the baby!
Jillian--I've never used an electric anything before, so I wasn't aware that women's ones were better! Thanks for the tip!

I'm glad I'm not the only one having issues...haha...not that I wish you ladies to, but you know, misery loves company! Heh. With my pregnancy with DS, I didn't even start to show until about now, so I didn't have to contend with a big belly till later in the pregnancy. Now I'm showing so early it's becoming a problem now!

Oh yes! I decided a few days to let it grow in a bit and then go get waxed. I did it with DD too and it was totally worth it!

I usually go bald for awhile then shave again when its needed. We have a big shower with 2 seats so I just guess and can usually manage but the next shaving is always harder than the last. Lol

Bare as a baby's bottom here lol, always have been, always will be - I hate hair anywhere but on my head lol! It's getting hard to see, but it's still not so difficult when you're just shaving stubble away...

Just today in the shower I was thinking to myself "I'm not going to be able to do this much longer!" My plan is to try to use a mirror when I've lost complete visibility. If that doesn't work I may just go get waxed.

Yeah I can't see anything down there. I go in blind and every now and then I might try to "move" my belly out of the way to see. That doesn't work. I will more than likely go get waxed but I'm going to be honest...it sounds painful.

I can't shave, so I use this Amazon.com: Philips HP6378 Bikini Perfect Deluxe Trimmer, Opal / Aqua: Health & Personal Care and I love it. For those of you interested in electric trimmers.

I use the Schick Quattro Trimstyle 'cause I can take it in the shower. But really, I just let it ride until I'm about to deliver and then get waxed.

I can still see and navigate, but the moment I can't, I'm getting waxed.

Maybe we could form some kind of buddy system via JM... people living near each other can meet up and hold mirrors/shave unreachable spots?!?!

Im with you girls. With DS I just did a blind shave and felt my way around. I always wanted to do a wax but was too scared. I may go for it this time.
