If You Did It, How Did You Do It?

The Buzz article on the "Birthing dress" is cracking me up. Not because so many mamas are not going spend $100 on one, but that so many mamas shaved their legs before delivery! If you shaved your legs before delivery, I want to know HOW you managed it? Because I couldn't have shaved my own navel by the time I popped, let alone anything south of the border.

  • My DH shaved my legs before everyone of our births. I have to admit he is one in a million. He even painted my toe nails for me.

  • i had a scheduled c section. I shaved my legs and bikini area and everything. I was not huge so I did not have a hard time doing it. I just wanted to be smooth and clean considering all the people that were going to see my "stuff". haha
