Anyone else have super sensitive skin since being pregnant? I got my hair done yesterday and every time she would brush it or separate it i would cringe. It hurt so much more than usual. And shaving even kind of hurts my skin now. It's very weird, I don't remember this with my first.

Yup I posted about it a few days ago.. and last night decided to shave before monkeys moved into the jungle that was my legs. BAD IDEA! My poor skin was on fire last night after I shaved.
Thankfully, my hair is really short (Best idea ever) so I don't have to brush it much.. If it was as long as it used to be, I'd be in tears. I have very thick hair..

Lol!! This had me rolling!! When I knew I had to go in earlier to the doctor the other day, she asked if I wanted to go in that day. I said of course I do, I just spent 30 minutes shaving everything. Lol. My skin burns to the touch, and I just ran out of lotion. Ugh....

I also pretty much told my hubby to expect a hippie for the next couple of months. Lol. I'm only shaving my pits on a regular basis, and everything else for appointments. Unless I too start to worry about monkeys. Lol.

My hormones make my reaction to touch different than it is outside of pregnancy, not sensitive the way you mentioned, but different.

Lotion helped me..and so does baby powder. Not sure why, but it's instantly soothing. Just whatever you do, DO NOT SHAVE DOWN BELOW!
Seriously.
I don't know what's worse..the fuzz when it grows back or the razor burn...
I'm trapped having to shave to avoid the itch of the fuzz, but then it burns..then it itches..burns..itches.. Never ending cycle.

Ahh the joys of pregnancy.

I'm having the same problem.. I have to shave my legs tonight because I have an appt tomorrow and I'm just dreading it! My skin is just burning without doing anything to it.. I know shaving is going to hurt... and the lotion burns too. Ouch.

hahaha the monkeys cracked me up!. OMG! The razor burn after shaving down below is awful!! I can't take it. I feel bad for DH but I have been quite the hippie lately too. Unless of course I have an appt. I hope this doesn't last the whole pregnancy!

LOL! I am the same way, wondering if Nair or Veet are okay to use, although that may have a similar effect. I use Veet down there, because I get bad razor burn anyways, add this and fuggettaboutit!

My skin is drier than usual, my hands are driving me mad!

I was just coming on to post about Nair! I usually use Nair on my upper lip so I don't have to pay for a waxing (and because I am really bad about waxing there myself, lol), and a LOT of the pregnancy books say DON'T USE IT!!!!!!!! Well, I ignored them during my last pregnancy, and I regretted it BIG TIME!!!!!!!!! It usually leaves my skin a little bit red for about 24 hours, but while I was pregnant it BURNED, baby, BURNED, and it left my upper lip red, chapped, irritated, and with 1-2 little scar marks for over a week!!!

Needless to say, I'd advise against the Nair... although if you're using it someplace that isn't usually visible, you can probably do that thing where you test a small area first to see how you react to it. As for me, I'm stuck with a 9-month mustache...
