Last night in addition to noticing my legs were so swollen they looked like logs, I noticed they were in pretty rough shape overall, hairy, dry, and sore so I am now going to attempt to shave them before my midwife appointment. I think my best shot will be sitting on the edge of the tub but I dont know, we shall see what happens lol.

Anyone else having fun adventures now that it's the third trimester?

LOL. yes, shaving has become a chore that I absolutely hate to do, especially my bikini area. I've about given that up because I just can't see it. And forget about tying my tennis shoes. I have to get DH to help me. I'm realy for warmer weather so I can just wear flip flops. And now my knee is hurting which I'm guessing is being caused by all the extra weight I'm lugging around. The third trimester is just full of fun and surprises. But the best part is that I've only got about 9 weeks left!!!

Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy

Shaving is a p.I.t.a. I tried painting my toes last night. They look.horrible but at least better than they were. Tying my shoes...also p.I.t.a. sex sucks now.

Shaving my legs is still ok other than I get dizzy bending over. But keeping other areas groomed is becoming a callange.

I can manage shaving my legs (sort of) but other areas are a challenge too. I just make due until my last shower before my c-section and have DH help with the shaving- he doesn't do too bad! I gave up on tying my shoes weeks ago and usually just wear slip on shoes but yesterday I accidentally put on my slippers to go to the OB. Thankfully, my OB is a mom too and laughed when I told her the story!

Thanks to Claire1979 for the terrific siggy!
