    I shaved through my entire pregnancy, although not as frequently as before. It was definitely more challenging near the end! I kept a plastic footstool in the shower so I’d have something to prop my legs up on. When grooming the pubic area I found a mirror to be very helpful as well.

    I’ve never been pregnant, but I gave up on shaving a while ago and went to waxing and I have to say 12/10 better. Someone else deals with it, they don’t miss pieces, it takes like 12 minutes and lasts for a couple weeks. The key is going every 4 weeks on the dot. I find after 4 weeks it starts to hurt more again. The more you do it, the less painful it gets IMO.

    I shaved until the end but I didn’t really get big enough to make it impossible.

    Both my babies were due at the end of January so I gave up once the weather was cold enough for trousers / thick tights. 

    The midwives don’t care. They’ve seen enough fanjos to not notice if it’s shaved or not, they are focusing on the baby

    I got lucky – IDK if it was a PCOS thing, or what, but with my hormones stabilized for once in my life, my hair growth actually SLOWED (also, thick dark hair on pale skin), plus it was winter. I shaved maybe once a week. I went by feel for more sensitive areas and just focused on problems spots everywhere else. My thighs, for example, only grow in dark on the back just above the knee, so lots of just shaving to just over the knee, and by feel for everywhere else.
