I'm getting so big that...
 
it's getting harder and harder to mow the lawn if you know what I mean! lol Seriously, am I the only one here who is all but blindly shaving down there now? I'm doing it regularly, but am not really able to do a good job anymore, so this is going to look like a hot mess in another month or two! Good thing my midwife is the only one who ever sees it! :giggle:

Anyone else having problems in this department?

Yes. :lol: I can't see a thing down there and "landscaping" has become a total guessing game. I'm glad it isn't just me! I've been meaning to try a mirror or something but we don't have one in the shower and I always forget about it until I'm already in there.

Why didn't I think of a mirror? Duh! lol I'll have to find a hand held one to check out the patchwork quilt that I'm sure I have going on down there! :giggle:

They should make a special mirror just for us - one with a suction cup that sticks to the shower wall, so we can free out hands up to work more effectively. :D

Amazon.com: InterDesign Fog Away Suction Mirror, Clear: Home & Kitchen

:giggle: They make those! It's also fog-resistant!

Haha! You guys made me LOL! I am doing it blindly as well. I have trouble shaving my legs too.. I just feel my way around. :giggle:

Yep! Right there with you ladies! I actually sat down and tried to do it in the bathtub last night.....I kept laughing at myself :giggle: Lord knows what it looks like down there lol! I'm one of those people that goes completely bare....so I'm almost positive I've missed some spots lol!

I'm with you on this one - that's why I said it probably looks like a patchwork quilt down there! lol

Tried this too, and still couldn't see all that I needed to see, plus it ended up being hard to get out of whatever position I was in trying to see it all. :D

My legs are a mess too, but I guess I don't care quite as much because the hair is thin and blonde - if it was thicker and darker, I'd be having a fit right now...I've got this thing about hair - I really don't like it anywhere except on my head. :giggle:

Same here. :giggle: I've missed entire strips of hair and not noticed until I've already been out of the shower and dressed. It's been frustratingly comical.

I got there at around 20 weeks or so. I've been blindly going at it with a venus razor(those flexible ones with the large soapy aloe bars above & below the blades) in all directions in hopes of getting the most amount of mowing done!

Re: I'm getting so big that...
 
its been getting tougher. I seriously will have to spend like 15 minutes in there to try and make sure I get it all. I am going to try and keep up with it for as long as I can but I know that pretty soon there won't be anything I can do!

This was how I was doing it - going all over in all directions, just hoping for the best. It was working well till I actually cut myself...then I noticed that I'm getting a bit of razor burn here and there, which was never a problem before. Oh well, guess anything is better than a forest which would require a weed whacker to hack through. :D

LMBO!!! I use a mirror now too - I am afraid of nicking myself somehow in the process haha!

Yup, got a brazillian last week - ouch! I used to do sugaring which hurts even worse, but afterwards it was way better. I don't think waxing is for me. I will stick with the sugaring.

I thought about a brazilian, but am actually too chicken to do it right now. What's up with the sugaring? I had to look it up to see what it was, and supposedly it's kind of like waxing...I'm curious as to why it hurts worse, and what makes it better afterwards.

DH laughed at my last attempt and said he better take over from here til after baby comes. Said I missed a lot of spots...lol

It took me 45 mins on Sunday to shave. I can barely see down there pregnant or not so I am pretty pro at doing it without actually seeing what is going on. I still have to be careful and take my time so I don't hurt myself.

You are one patient woman, that's for sure! I'm very much lacking in that department - basically my ADD would kick in before I even got one leg done! :giggle:

Re: I'm getting so big that...
 
I was getting full brazillian every 5 weeks, but quit doing it when we moved. Just need to make an appointment, but have just not felt like it, plus baby brain I forget until I can't do it at the time I remember. :P So I have gone back to au natural. Need to set a reminder to do that. BUGGING ME!

Re: I'm getting so big that...
 
Yep! I definitely have to lift my belly with one hand and shave with the other while trying to see what I'm doing. I can't imagine of DH walked in and witnessed this shenanigans.
