Grooming down there.
Ive kept a peach fuzz through the pregnancy.
But now that I’m 39 weeks wondering if any ladies did any Extra shaving before birth.
Did your hubby help? Did you just not give a crap?
Let me know!

I mostly kept up. Last time, when I needed help, I had my husband shave it once for me, but he was so freaken nervous that it scared me lol. So I just had him hold a mirror and I groomed myself while laying in the bathtub.

@Ugoob: I’m not pregnant but I’m a newlywed and I’m completly natural. I don’t fall for the brazilian wax thing. Not my style and I’m not into barbaric acts of ripping hair off of my vulva.
I don’t keep up on the grooming much.

@Ugoob: I’m 20 weeks and I just keep things trimmed, same as I do when I’m not pregnant!

I’ve been wondering about this too.
Is it possible to trim myself at 38 weeks pregnant? lol

Im being induced in 2 weeks so have been keeping it tidy. Have to put in a heap of effort and shave after shower infrint of mirror. I feel better knowing it’s a bit clearer down there!!

My husband shaved me when I couldn’t safely see what I was doing.

My DH brought home a little inspector mirror from his work. It is a little mirror with a long handle. I have been able to use it to trim up down there although it gets tricky to hold the mirror in the right spot while doing it.

I’ve been thinking about this, too. My sister is a nurse and when she did her clinical rotation in L&D said she noticed that not a single mother she helped deliver was trimmed or shaved down there, even the ones she predicted when they came in would be.
That said, I know I feel better about myself when I’m not really overgrown. I’m only 14 weeks now, but think that I’m going to at least do what I can to maintain trimming (if not the full thing), and probably near the end enlist my husband’s help if needed.
But at least based on my sister’s experience, if you do nothing, you’re really normal!

Let ‘er grow!!! Isn’t the point of hair to provide a barrier to disease?!

Well I didnt mean Brazilian waxing, I meant just a little grooming with a razor now and then.
Glad Im not alone! Thanks ladies!

Yeah, I’ve thought about this too (not pregnant yet). I think I’m actually going to start back up with waxes soon so that I’m used to it and it’s not that painful (it’s only bad the first time, after that it’s pretty quick and much less painful), and hopefully I can continue it throughout pregnancy. I figure I can try to schedule a wax for near the end of my pregnancy, and even if I don’t manage to get in for that one, it will be finer and softer if it is growing back.
For me, the biggest concern is comfort. I hate the way it feels when I’m not hairless, and I can imagine it would be extra uncomfortable after labor to be healing with prickly stubble that I can’t shave or trim. So I’m trying to plan ahead so that it hopefully won’t be too bad 🙂

With my DD constantly moving and never letting me sleep, the painful braxton hicks, discomfort, etc. I basically stopped caring in my 3rd trimester lol

I couldn’t see down there after 35 weeks, so all grooming went to hell. No one cares at the hospital. And i had bigger things to worry about.
