  • I did mine by touch and feel, and was very careful about it...I went very slowly.

  • I shaved mine up to the day I delivered with all 3 when I couldnt see anymore I did it by feel. every time I went in to have my c-sec they would say hey I dont have to do much causeI had done it already. so my advice is just feel around or have your SO help.

  • Like CarolynBarnett. I do the feel and touch method. It might not be the most accurate, buts its better than the hairy feeling. And whatever you miss the first day, just do it over again the second day.

    But i agree with you...I feel dirty if its hairy.

  • It was hard to do in the bathtub, so I would stand on the bathroom floor and put one foot on the toilet lid with my mirror on the toilet seat and shave that way. A friend of mine resorted to leaning on her hands and knees and shaving as best as she could.

  • I used an electric shaver to minimize the opportunity for nics. What do you do for razor burn? Dh/SO would be more than happy to do it! I also use littlemrsmarcel's technique too. DH calls it '70's bush if it gets to hairy. LOL
