I just got a mirror to inspect my lady garden and. my fanny looks like a yeti.

Desperately desperately need a wax. Anyone else been ignoring their "upkeep"?! I'll book one for Tuesday at 31 weeks and hopefully that'll last me until another one at 38 weeks before elcs.

Poor poor dp :-(

I stood starkers in front of full length mirror yesterday... I think because I can't see down there I haven't thought too much about it. I really FUCKING should have grin

firstbaby01 Sat 15-Feb-14 19:56:11

This thread made me lol grin I'm too much of a wimp to go for a wax but DP has already been informed of his duties with a razor when my belly gets too big!

Writerwannabe83 Sat 15-Feb-14 20:07:27

I last shaved about a month ago and I will be doing it again tomorrow. I'm mentally preparing myself for how much of a nightmare it is going to be, don't our bumps realise how inconveniently placed they are?! smile

Poor poor dp :-( confusedhmm

Does your 'poor' dp also have the hair ripped from his genitals?

SweetPea86 Sat 15-Feb-14 22:05:48

I can't see mine any more had to ask hubby to hold a mirror while I attempted to tidy it up lol

So embarrassing I'm quite funny on that and my hubby always only sees me tidy and trimmed. But all dignity went out the window since he's helped me clean up my sick from all over the house whilst being pregnant. I've left it for a month too now and it's going to take a few blades to get through the scary jungle.

ElBombero Sat 15-Feb-14 22:10:05

Poor DPshockconfused just wait till you've had the bloody baby, there won't be any time for a wax

IdaClair Sat 15-Feb-14 22:10:15

I don't do anything to mine pregnant or not. So it doesn't make any difference.

DP is not poor or upset in any way by my normal natural body hair, I am not poor or upset In Any way by his natural body hair.

I would not be pleased with any partner who required me to rip out my hair by its roots before he found me sexually attractive.

Larty74 Sat 15-Feb-14 22:16:40

35 weeks here and from the waist (wait, what waist?!) down, the bits that i can actually see make me too scared to even attempt a quick peek at the bits i cant! Anyway, i keep hearing how extra sensitive you are when pregnant in any waxable area. Is this true?

I am in excruciating pain anyway from sciatica/spd, etc, so may not seem so bad after all? blush

CrispyFB Sat 15-Feb-14 22:23:58

I've been epilating my bikini line as I take DS (2) for swimming lessons once a week. It's not been painful at all and there's no rash or anything and it takes a few minutes once a week. It's a lot less faff than anything else especially as I have SPD too. Nearly 35 weeks now!

Not doing it for DH though, doing it for my dignity in front of all the other mothers (who, to be fair, would probably understand, but still!) at the swimming pool!

CareBearWithFangs Sat 15-Feb-14 22:26:12

I went for a wax when I was 37 weeks in my last pregnancy. I swear it was more painful than giving birth. I shall be shaving everything myself during this pregnancy.

greentshirt Sat 15-Feb-14 22:29:58

I've kept up as usual, I just dont have as much off as I did before as its a bit awkward for the girl doing the waxing as much as for me with my belly in the way!

PenguinsEatSpinach Sat 15-Feb-14 22:35:18

Poor DP? What an odd thing to say about a bit of pubic hair.confused

livingzuid Sun 16-Feb-14 03:28:07

I have regular waxing done. Or I did. It's for me as I hate having hair down there. I understand the dp comment though, mine is not fussed either way but it does make things nicer. I had one done at around 18 weeks and the wax was so sore on my skin I don't think I can do it again until after birth sad normally doesn't hurt at all. So dh ventures down with clippers once in a while blush as I can't see. I may try and go just before the birth but don't know if I am brave enough!

Mines is like a fecking SPORRAN! I did worry about it for a while but I've crucified that as I can't see it I really can't be bothered! blush

Tea1Sugar Sun 16-Feb-14 06:30:33

Woah this was a lighthearted thread! I have my wax done for me because I hate pubic hair, I feel cleaner and nicer without it. And whilst dp loves me unconditionally (pubes included) he does prefer it too. I'm having a section and I don't want a scrub nurse to hack away with a dry bic razor so in my opinion, waxing is better FOR ME. Jeez.

Beccadugs Sun 16-Feb-14 06:59:22

I'm getting DH down there with the clippers soon. Mainly as I don't want to be too hairy for post birth bleeding. sad envy

PenguinsEatSpinach Sun 16-Feb-14 07:24:47

No problem with any of that Tea. But what you said first time was 'poor DP'.hmm

MrsRV Sun 16-Feb-14 07:59:59

oh goodness... what the hell is it with mumsnet sometimes... do people really go through life over analysing every word that is ever spoken or written... who'd have thought poor "DP" could cause so much of a stir. ha!!!!grin I'm sure the comment was made as OP is genuinely consumed with sheer guilt about not ripping her genital hair out by the roots and probably isn't sleeping at night for fear this is wrecking her relationship with DP and in fact.. he'll probably leave her for this very reason alone.

sara1752 Sun 16-Feb-14 08:03:26

I gave it a good attempt till about 30 weeks until I could no longer see, where isnthe cut myself- ouch!

I did it again at 39 as it was out of control, its only after babe was born I looked and I did an awful awful job there was just random areas of fuzz!

SomethingOnce Sun 16-Feb-14 08:24:55

DP helped me out yesterday and did the usual tidy up with the clippers. He made a lovely job of it too, better than I manage when I can see what I'm doing.

What a sweetheart!

Tea1Sugar Sun 16-Feb-14 08:25:54

Exactly that MrsRV! Mumsnet amazes me sometimes!!

MummyPig24 Sun 16-Feb-14 08:55:43

I don't care what Dh thinks, and he isn't bothered, but I do want to keep it short so that post birth care is a bit easier. I gave it a good go a few weeks ago and will again this week ready for the imminent birth. Not that I can see anything so I am living life on the edge and doing it blind.

SweetPea86 Sun 16-Feb-14 10:00:49

I'm sure OP meant all of this in a lighthearted post. There is such a thing as a joke when she said poor dp.

Does us good to take the pee out of ourselves once in a while.

Some people like hairy tuts some don't, no need to be so defensive smile each to their own.

Your post OP cheered me up smile

SaucyJack Sun 16-Feb-14 10:04:59

I've grown mine back a bit recently for the impending as I actually feel more comfortable having people look at it if it's got a bit of a coat on. I just feel "less" naked IYSWIM.
