    Shave by feel, despite the cuts and missed spots

    Bear it and let it go natural until after birth

    Get a wax

    I have another idea! Its....

    Not sure if this would work, but maybe getting a  handheld mirror and that way you could see what your doing better.

    I’m not there yet, but I always shave by feel so maybe just practice that some more!  Or, the PPs had a bunch of good suggestions, too.  🙂

    @Rosie Girl:  Tehehehe.  🙂  My husband’s the same way.

    Hmmmmm, idk if you can use any depilatory creams in that area…  It might be something to look into.  I waxed once and swore it off for life, but I have some friends who do it as a part of their regular maintenance.  My concern would be that there’s a lot of extra blood flow and potential swelling and sensitivty in that region during pregnancy, which would make waxing even more painful than usual.

    I let it go after a certain point. I couldn’t see and a mirror will NOT help after a certain point. Go for a wax! My SO offered to shave me, but no thanks. I like my lady parts.LOL

    I had that problem too. After a certain point I just let it all go. It was very exciting after the baby came and I could see all, and shave all again.

    I got to the point where I couldn’t shave it, but I did use the trimmer on the lowest/closest setting.  That way there was almost nothing left, but I didn’t run the risk of cutting myself and no ingrown hairs that way either.

    I’m with eeniebeans!  Get a trimmer so you can keep it neat down there, or get a mirror like other have suggested. 

    I’m pretty much at the point where I can no longer see down there and I would hate to have to let it just go natural.

    Never pregnant, but I say no to waxing. It hurt enough without all the extra swelling and blood flow, but the ingrown hairs were unbelievable. So imagine trying to use tweezers to get the ingrown hair (or have DH do it)–ugh!
