@iarebridezilla:  Ok. I seriously looked at the post title, saw it was you, and said to myself, “Oh this is going to be effing good” and I was not disappointed, as usual, lol. I applaud you for doing this. I will suffer through all the blood and guts consequences of having a jungle down there through my PP phase because, honestly, I have never been waxed, and even though I will live, I don’t plan on doing it, so more power to you. I am glad you lived and your nether regions are starting to feel better!

@iarebridezilla: The Last and only time I had it done I got hot and I wasn’t pregnant – just my body coping with the pain. Why do we do this to ourselves.

@iarebridezilla:  I’m amazed you found someone to do it! Anyone I have asked said they won’t do waxing/sugaring if you are severely pregnant (I count you as severely pregnant, ma’am). I sugar on a regular basis so I am not too worried. I will continue to do so as long as I can find someone who will! Also, you should be exfoliating to prevent ingrowns and putting cream on it.

@iarebridezilla:  That sounds like pure torture! It’s bad enough waxing my pits after reverting to shaving for a couple of months. Kudos to you for making it through, but ouch!

Thank you for posting! I had been getting Brazilians prior to becoming pregnant and got my last one when I was just 7 weeks (I started shaving… even though I lost sight of my lady parts pretty early on). It was so much more painful than it had been! I’m 31 weeks now and know that it’s the best option to keep the region clean and easy to work with… but I’ve been dreading laying on that table again. Luckily, it only takes about 20 minutes with me (i’m not super hairy), and I lay “butterfly” style instead of holding knees up. But I still have no desire to go through it with my giganto belly and super sensitive parts. 

Did you take Tylenol before you went?

@iarebridezilla:  I actually don’t find it hurts anymore. I am so used to it, I just lay there and chat with her while she’s doing it, lol. I made a “mistake” once and had sex right after (you’re not supposed to do that). My vagina turned black. Like literally black and blue bruised. That was FUN!

*You told me a TMI story, so I gave you one back* 😀

That’s awesome it worked out, we’re not even TTc but that is my secret plan – I hate hair down there, blech! Have you ever thought about laser treatments (after baby arrives)?

It took an HOUR?????

OMG, I don’t think I could deal! My girl is like a ninja and I am out the door in ten minutes. She uses soft wax though- I’ve heard hard is better but I really don’t think it’s that painful. Plus, in any situation when hair is getting ripped out and you are half naked legs spread in front of someone who is not your partner, the faster the better!

FYI, I find that a mixture of hydrocortisone cream and neosporin makes the redness and swelling go away overnight.

Like Megz, I also saw the poster and was like “only iarebridezilla would subject herself to something like this”. Pretty hilarious story! Yay for no hair issues in the PP phase.

I have been told that sugaring is the way to go for this during pregnancy, way less painful.
