How to keep 'trim' down below while heavily pregnant
My DP got a shock when he felt my free growing, tree hugger bush. I normally keep my area nice and trimmed but now I'm 8 months pregnant it is impossible to shave and get a decent outcome, I'm basically hacking away while blind. I hate waxing and doubt I can handle the pain right now so can I nair/veet down below? Any tips would be greatly appreciated.
I agree, if dp is concerned then let him take over mainenance. Personally my dh knew that he was not fucking welcome in that area by that stage of pg but if it is an issue for you then give him some guidance.
Sorry but I have had 3 pregnancies and you really should just let it grow! DP should be happy that you are pregnant and producing his child. If a neat fanjo means more to him then ask if he would be willign to wax his sack in return......no??? Then tell him to naff off. Bet you can't even see the area..what you can't see.....forget IME!!
I found during pregnancy it caused unbearable heat and itchy uncomfortableness if I had a big bush, so I totally understand the need for trimming! Also helps in the post-natal period if you're not too hairy.
I am over six months and went for waxing which was fine. Normally go for brazilian but thought I might be more sensitive so just bikini wax. Did say I was pregnant when booking and went for lycon hot water which does hurt less.
I would NOT recommend using Veet Sensitive down below. I did a few weeks ago with hideous results. I came out in what can only be described as a chemical burn which took nearly a week to right itself, I had to apply sudocrem and couldn't wear kickers for days. I was mortified in case I went into early labour and would have to explain the horror of my nethers to the midwives!!!
Use a mirror propped up on the edge of bath or similar and trim with bikini/beard trimmer if you want to neaten up, that way no nasty surprises when you wake up the next day
