Default Personal question

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

Is it really THAT hard to see at the end?

Yes. Stand up and put your hands in a circle about ten inches away from your belly. Try to see your crotch.

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!

I used a mirror so that I could do it myself, though I did sometimes ask my husband for help.

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 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.

Thanks, guys. I was hesitant about posting this question, as I typically don't answer similar questions when they're posted.
I want to keep it up, but I don't know how well I will be able to do that.

I also want to wear leg warmers during delivery, partially because they're funny, and partially because I like the idea of partially controlling which parts of my body everyone can see.

ETA that I'm aware that I used partially wayyyyy too much in that last sentence.

I don't see why you couldn't wear leg warmers, though be prepared to be either too hot or too cold during labor.
If you are concerned about privacy I've seen special labor skirts on line.

I used the feel mode and hubby. I shaved and he trimmed. It was summer time...I couldn't let it go and be at the pool in my sexy tankini.

I like the idea of leg warmers! How funny! I do know I kept a pair of socks on the whole time.

I couldn't have my husband help me shave. I have this weird thing about not finding "help" in personal hygiene to be sexy. I would have to find a way to do it on my own.

I HATE having bare feet too. Do they make full leg warmers with feet?

I found these funky things that have some kind of medical advantage too. It even says, wear during labor!
