I’m crying I’m laughing so hard at this thread!!!! Kansas you really are hilarious – but you’re definitely not crazy as I have definitely seen a fair number of posts on this topic (and just fyi, I just noticed one of the related topics that came up is “The Land Down Under” – I’m assuming that thread is about Australia….but interestingly, the title could also make it applicable here!)
I’m getting to the point where I can’t really see much but I’m still shaving by feel only. I’m scared to trim though – that’s the part that I will definitely need full sight for. And whilst DH and I are super close and open about everything, that is NOT something I would ever ask him to do! It would just creep me out and I don’t think he would exactly love it eiether…. I’m kind of liking the idea of the Quattro Schick though that someone else posted – I had no idea it had a trimmer on the end! I wonder if we can get that here…..
ETA: I just checked out The Land Down Under thread and it is not about Australia, but instead about wedding night sex. Sigh, poor Australia just can’t get a break from the sexual references! 🙂

Haha! Love that!!! 🙂 I’m a nervous-pooper (TMI? Well too bad, you freako-rico’s clicked onto this thread!;) and so I’m pretty much just checking all dignity (what little I have left after college, anyway) at the door. 🙂

Haha, haven’t read that book, but it makes sense! 🙂

I’m doing nothing. I just don’t care.

I’ve been in quite a few deliveries with my nursing clinicals and can promise you no one cares (nurses or doctors). In fact, I’ve only seen ONE woman who was all “prim and proper” so I would definitely say don’t worry about it 🙂 However, if you really want to be all trimmed up I wouldn’t reccomend letting your husband take the razor. The last thing you want is to go into labor already having war-wounds on your Britney.

I read it this way too! That’s why I clicked on the thread. Sadly, I have nothing to add, other than “good luck solving your problem!”

Hahahaha. Sorry stopped in for another laugh. Love you guys even if I’m not with child.

They did not shave me when I had my son, so I don’t think there is truth that.
As for shaving in that area, honestly no one is going to care what you look like as you are giving birth. For that matters, in the time of labor all you are going to care about is getting that baby out of you….

I’ve never heard of that. I wouldn’t let anyone do that to me that’s for damn sure. I didn’t lady-scape when I gave birth to DD and no one even mentioned shaving to me.

🙂 I like that thought though. Seriously, when the time comes, I HIGHLY doubt I’ll care, but I also won’t have a camera crew stuffed in ladyville to show the horror of a bush I have. HA!
Oh that’s lovely news! 🙂 It’s not like I’m going to start having contractions and think “Ah! I have to shower and shave! Then do my makeup! Maybe a manicure!” LOL 🙂
Pop on by whenever you like, that’s what we’re here for 😉

They used to, but not anymore b/c it actually increased risk of infection.
It is a MUST read for any pregnant mom! It’s really the only book I’ve “read read” & I seriously feel uber prepared for my completely unmedicated homebirth! It’s inspiring and incredibly enlightening to how maternal care is handled! My favorite part is that she actually has the Farm’s STATS in the appendix… I was SHOCKED to see such an amazing tract record! ie. More than 1/2 of their moms have had completely intact perineums!
Okay…. back on track to the personal preference of landscaping…. tehe

@KansasPrincess11: I’m dying over the fact that you call it your “britney” hahaha
And I was going to suggest the same trimmer that NDBee
suggested… I don’t shave, I just trim with this on the shortest length… Go ahead, call me crazy 🙂

I don’t know what my deal is, I’m usually a seriously modest person I can barely even use a changing room at Target without watching the door like a hawk and bracing my leg against it so someone doesn’t bust in. But when it comes to pregnancy I’m like “Whatever.” Every time a nurse would come in to flip me over and check my progress during labor I was chatting about something I just read in People or commenting on the weather. Didn’t care.

LOL, Kansas you made my night!
As soon as my water broke with my first, I got into the shower (the warm water helped with contractions) but I also shaved. Now I think I’ll just get a wax around 38 weeks since my belly is bigger this time and I’m alway missing spots!

I really thought I would care, but when the time came, I could have cared less. There is absolutely NO privacy while you’re in the hospital, and I also didn’t care about people constantly checking stitches, bleeding, etc. It’s funny how once you’re in that situation, your whole perception on things just changes.
Oh, and to get back to the original topic, I definitely had a bush. I was embarassed every checkup, but once in labor, furthest thing from my mind.
