I went in to have my c-section and had the nurse do it...I was like you should have told me I would have done it or had my hubby do it. She was NOT very gentle!

I finally broke down and shaved a month or two ago but it wasn't easy and I didn't do it by feel either... I put a towel down on my bed and used a mirror so I could see... I was about an hour shaving and trust me I haven't tried since because it was just too hard... I hate that I can't shave but who cares... It is like this if your ob has seen one he/she has seen them all... I really don't think anyone will judge me for not being able to see to shave and if they do then oh well... Don't feel bad we are all going through the same thing... TTYL... Joy

I did with my last pregnancy. I wore breast pads the last few weeks, just in case.

I do the trimming by feel too but my most embarrassing part is the lactating out of no where! Anyone else have that issue?

I use a trimmer by feel(since I haven't even seen my feet in a couple of months) and hope for the best. =)

i go waxing a few weeks before my due date. it's a lot easier to keep things cleaner once the baby has gotten here - w/all of the blood discharge for a few weeks after, i found after the 1st baby that waxing kept things a lot neater. the less hair, the easier to manage.

I had this same problem. I'm 38 1/2 weeks. And my husband went out and got me a fog proof mirror from Wal-Mart. I hold the mirror so i can see everything with my left hand and shave with my right. I tried by just feeling before he got the mirror and i cut the crap out of my fingers. I hope this idea helps. It helps me. I also tried sensitive nair...that worked but didn't last for that long.

I have been having this problem also and I cant stand hair so I shave it by feel then whatever I miss I have my husband help me so I dont cut myself

I always have this problem about now... I shave by feel while sitting on the toilet (it's the only way I can reach). I have never cut my girl parts this way, however I have shaved off the tip of finger a few times. I agree that waxing is a great idea because one wax will probably last you till delivery, but I've never gotten around to making that appointment or going to it (I have three kids already, and my husband is deployed most of the time, so just getting to the grocery store is a major accomplishment this late in pregnancy). Good Luck!

you could go for a wax???

I wouldn't risk shaving in case you cut yourself and trust me when I say there will be enough stinging in that region and you dont want to add to it lol!!!

You could just go natural and let it all grow back, probably be extremely itchy and a heavily pregnant woman trying to scratch herself would be a weird sight lol!!

I don't know how to help you. Maybe your partner (if you have one) can do it??
