I was just curious, for those of you who trim or do some kind of upkeep to your vaginal area:
Did you take care of it yourself toward the end of pregnancy, did you have hubby take care of it for you, or did you just stop caring?
I can't imagine stopping when I know that I will have many different people looking at my vagina.
I was not as vigilant about it once my belly got in the way but I decided one day that I was going to fix it up. I sat on the toilet and did it without being able to see but it felt like I had done a pretty good job. My husband thought otherwise and laughed until he cried. I don't know what I did wrong but he certainly found it funny.
Some ladies use a mirror to help guide it. My waxing lady recommended against waxing so that wasn't an option.
To be honest, I didn't care what it looked like the day that I delivered. It didn't feel like my special place anymore. It was more of a science experiement that everyone in the hospital got a peep at.

I'm on my first and around the same far-along-ness as you are, so I can only say what I plan to do, which is to keep shaving the area. I can still see it now, of course, but I also kind of do it by feel, shaving until it feels smooth. I'm hoping this continues to work, because I would most definitely NOT trust my husband with a razor near me down there!! Then again, he trusts me with a razor to his head, so maybe I should give it a shot

My crotch? Nope, can't see it at all. I can't even see the underside of my belly. Haven't been able to for a while. I could feel bumps there, and had to have hubby look at them and tell me what they were b/c I couldn't see my stomach. I also have to have him cut my toenails - I don't think he likes doing that too much, but since I keep complaining about his "evil seed" he doesn't say anything.
I have always kept up the upkeep in that area. It's getting a bit complicated, but I do it purely by "feel". Sometimes I'm too exhausted to do a good job, but nobody's really poking around there anyway. What is so annoying is that my belly is so low that I can feel the stubble from my upper thighs on the underside of my belly! It's so irritating and makes me shave more often than I really want to!

Please excuse any typos. For the time being, we are blaming it on my computer.
For a while after I got big, I just let it go. But once it was getting closer to my delivery date, I decided I was gonna trim it up real nice. I did a horrible job! I'm sure it was better than having that big ol bush in the way, but still...
I just let it go!! I couldn't see it and I don't trust the hubby down there with sharp instruments!! and when it came to deliver both times I didn't care what it looked like as long as I got the job done!!
I don't know what possessed me, cause I am generally a "let it go" sort of person, but I went for my first ever brazilian wax when I was 8 months pregnant. I don't really recommend that.
I kept it up myself. It wasn't perfect, but I must have done a pretty good job: when the docs told the nurses to get the razor to prep me for my c-section, my midwife told them it was totally unnecessary.
