    Get an epilator! Then you only have to deal with it every week or two and if you get behind the hair grows in thinner and finer so its not really noticeable.

    For shaving I would say work in sections and dont do it all every day

    I just did my best. My leg hair was super fine during pregnancy so I didnt need to do it as often. I found it easiest in the shower, we have a seat that I could put my leg on

    If i had been bigger i probably would have just gotten Darling Husband to do it for me.

    MrBlueSky :  oh yea at a certain point I just gave up. I’m fair anyways but the belly just gets in the way and it wasn’t worth it to me. And I have a summer baby. Maxi dresses ftw.

    MrBlueSky : the first time you use it will be a little painful, work in small sections. But I promise after that first time it doesn’t hurt anymore so it’s totally worth it!

    Doing it seated sounds like a pain. I deal with it about halfway up my thighs standing as usual, putting a leg on the tub as needed. I ignore any higher except at most once a week, which I remain vertical for and hope for the best. I have no idea what’s going on in my bikini zone anymore, can’t see it, but my husband doesn’t complain and wouldn’t get any sympathy if he did, lol. There’s nothing unhygienic about having hair as long as it gets washed. Seems an odd thing to worry about as far as that aspect goes.

    MrBlueSky :  is it worth going for a wax instead? Someone else will handle it and then you don’t have to worry about it again for awhile!

    I am still shaving and I’m 37.5 weeks pregnant. I sit on the edge of my bathtub and put my leg up. I’ve always done it this way but it’s been really helpful while pregnant.

    MrBlueSky :  Last time I waxed throughout and this time I’ve been sugaring. It’s easier to make it someone else’s problem, plus I hate shaving haha.
