So ladies. Now that we are definitely getting some bellies growing around here, I know that I'm not the only one who finds shaving a challenge. So, just out of curiousity, do you have any strategies and tricks for shaving your legs and um. . . your girly bits? When I was pg with DD I got to a point where I'd sit on towel on a chair in front of the full length mirror in the bathroom and use my electric shaver I have to trim the jungle a bit. What do you do? Let it grow all natural or do you get creative about trimming/shaving/waxing?
LOL! I was so thinking about starting a thread like this just last night!
My legs actually don't get too bad above the knee (thank you Asian part of me lol). I also don't shave much anyway since I wear pants most of the time and I don't have to impress DH lol.
However, the other part...I was complaining to DH about it because I can't lift my belly enough to even get to it, much less see it! But I saw it in a mirror the other night and wanted to cry at how gross it looked! Lol! With my previous pregnancies I wasn't carrying low enough to where I couldn't see or reach whereas I am with this one. And I have actually had DH help me wax before down there lol. That was an experience! But it was cuz I couldn't bring myself to do it.
The other night when I saw the jungle I asked DH if he would be grossed out if I asked him to help me trim (lol). He said no and whenever I want he would help!
Before I have had to have one leg up and bend way over to see (although I don't bend that way anymore) and I've used Nair for bikini areas to help too, but that stuff doesn't always work.
But shew I thought I was all alone in wondering how to "tame the beast" lol.

Haha!! I smiled while reading your post because I just dealt with this, um, situation two days ago. I had let it go wild and untamed for WAY too long and I just could not stand it another moment! I also used an electric shaver (not like a men's razor but one of those little ones made for "personal" grooming). I wouldn't dare attempt a real razor because I'd cut myself for sure. I feel SO much better and cleaner now that that situation is back under control! I know it's hardly perfectly groomed, since I couldn't see a whole lot of what I was doing, but it's at least no longer a sasquatch situation.
LOL!! I was just thinking about this yesterday morning in the shower as I attempted to 'tame the beast'! I can still manage to hold the belly out of the way 'just' enough to go at it with a razor... but it's getting difficult for sure! I can't remember what I did last time - I think I may just have gone in 'blind' and hoped for the best! LOL
HAHAHA I almost pee'd my pants reading this thread!!!!
I just use a mirror and snip at it with the scissors for now, there is no way I can use a razor because my skin is super tight and the old stretch marks hurt now and I don't want to make them worse!
I have been pondering what exactly to do with it. Hope someone comes up with a magic answer! Then again, we could pretend it's the 70's and just let it be I guess. Wonder if they make maternity bell-bottoms?
I'm sure I made mine look like a 2yo went at it with a razor.
I need to invest in an electric groomer.

That being said....I'll probably attempt the scissor snip and then finish up with DH's electric razor (shhhh don't tell) pretty soon. It's not so bad now but I HATE trying to clean it up right around birth time because it's sooo much harder to get down there!
I've been letting mine grow out for a few months now. I warned my husband that it would look like a jungle down there, but he seemed to like the idea of the 70's porn star look. LOL (Although he's not been getting much porn star action lately!) For Christmas he bought himself a new electric razor and asked if I wanted his old one for when I decided to start shaving again, lol thanks! I dont think I'm going to be doing anything to it...well maybe a little trim, I looked at it yesterday and it looking pretty wild down there!
