It's A Hairy Situation

As I have mentioned previously, my hair looks gross. All things considered, I would go bald if it meant a healthy pregnancy, but still, the vain side of me wishes I didn't look like Bozo the Clown. I've also noticed the prenatals don't discriminate on where they encourage hair to grow. Nose hair, anyone? I certainly need to shave my legs more often. I always shave under my arms, etc. Always. And then there's "downstairs"....


Now, I am of the less is more mentality. I know it is natural, and some people think it is "beautiful" but I am simply not into pubic hair. The "I Am Woman Hear Me Roar" mantra doesn't fit for me. A friend of mine said it is a generational thing, and maybe it is, but I can't help it. Pubic fluff is not my style.

That all said, I am way too modest to go to a professional. I am pretty militant about personal grooming, and I know the time will come where, despite my best acrobatics, I won't be able to reach everywhere I want to reach. So then what?

Do I ask my husband to do it? Do I suck it up and go to a waxer? Do I attempt to contort with the aid of a bigger mirror? Do you mind sharing your solutions? I truly don't see myself fitting into the, "I'm so hugely pregnant I don't care anymore" group so if that was you, more power to you, but it ain't me. You can post anonymously if it is easier. :)

  1. I'm not shy about this subject at all. In my younger days, I frequently went & got professionally waxed down there. I rarely do anymore. I just try to maintain myself. I remember begging my husband to help me with this towards the end of my first pregnancy, and he refused! I didn't want to go get waxed cause I had heard waxing hurts a whole lot worse while pregnant.

    I think that I did just end up letting it go somewhat towards the end of both pregnancies cause you reach a point where you don't care as much. But I think I tried my best to trim as well as I could, using a mirror.
