How did you clean your “queen Victoria” before you went into labor?
At 33 weeks I can not see my below with out a mirror and some weird angles. I was wondering how you took care of you area before delivery.

I don’t want to argue semantics but I didn’t think having less hair made you any “cleaner”? I don’t want non-pruning bees to feel like they are “dirty” or anything like that
I think its more for asthetics more than anything else right? I’ve always waxed down there and it hardly hurts anymore, but if you haven’t had it done before and normally shave I would not recommend it at all. It would hurt like hell! Equally I wouldn’t trust my Darling Husband anywhere near there with a razor!

@Sea_bass: Good point 🙂
Hmm, I’m not sure about this, if I’m feeling up to it I’ll probably get a wax, but my skin seems a lot more sensitive now I’m pregnant so I will have to see nearer the time. I’m sure once I’m in labour I won’t care that much if I haven’t managed to do any trimming! I’m not going to attempt anything with a razor tho when I can’t see properly – much too scary!

@Mrsluckywife: Can you imagine having to go to the emergency room trying to explain a cut down there at 9 months pregnant…?! Awkward…..

I was using “clean up” as in help trim/shave. Things I’ve read say to have Darling Husband help you in that area but I dont know if I’d trust him with a razor/trimmer down there.

I only gained 20 pounds while I was preggo. It was all belly but I could still bend over and touch my knees (the family all joked that I would be able to at 9 months preggo, so I touched my toes in the delivery room LOL! I wouldn’t have ever asked Fiance if I wasn’t able to do it myself, he can’t even go down the tampon aisle at the store!

I really woudn’t worry about it. Doctors, nurses have seen it all! And lets face it, your “Queen Victoria” isn’t going to look very pretty anyways…lol

@babeandbabe: +1. I read an article that some RN’s hate hair down there but I think theyre the exception. Theyve seen it all and there are worse, far grosser things that just happen sometimes to worry about 🙂 as a future ob PA, I would not care about hair and whether its there or not.

@Sea_bass: Haha yeah how embarrasing! 🙂
@Omgbunnies: Really? I’m sure like you say most of them don’t care!

Clippers and a mirror. It worked just fine

I shower and before getting out, I turn off more water and tell Darling Husband to hand me a mirror. Then I sit on the floor of the shower and spread my legs with the mirror in between and I go at it. Works like a charm and I have hair free all the time.

Honestly when you go into labor, the nurses to doctors are not going to care what you look like if you are trimed, bare, or shaved. All they care about is getting that baby out of you.

I cleaned up my bikini line and tried to do it myself. It really doesn’t matter though, because no one will care (including you) how hairy you are down there during a delivery.

i’ve been getting waxed regularly (i’m 21w) and will continue to do so. i’ll probably make an appt close to my due date just because it will be the last time any hot wax will be going near my lady parts until a long while after LO arrives!

I plan to get waxed. I figure it will make it easier to keep things clean and see how things are healing (especaially if there are stitches down there post-delivery) if there isn’t hair to worry about.
