  • Yes, it's perfectly fine. No, I don't think it's gross if you don't...that's just a personal decision and well I guess it's up to your significant other or husband or etc. lol

  • Yep, it's fine. After a few months, I couldn't see it so I couldn't shave

  • My husband did it for me when I was pregnant. He even did it the night before I went in to be induced. It's not gross if you dont, just all depends on what you want to do. When it comes time to give birth I dont think you really care how much hair is where lol.

  • it gets really hard to shave after a while i would really really like to but its just not possible for me lol but its really up to you if you can do it and your more comfortable that way then go for it but if you cant don't stress about it you'll soon have much bigger issues trust me lol

  • i have to stand in front of the mirror to do it but did it all the way through the first and hopefully will make it with this one.....if you have a c-section they shave you to do the surgery so if its a scheduled one you may want to try and shave before going (they dont make you bare just do the top) that way you dont get awful razor burn b/c they use cheap razors and shave cream

  • do they shave you when you give vag. birth?
    because what if your hair gets all nasty and clumped together and the baby can't get through because you have a bush..? lol

  • I tried shaving once-- it was awful when the hair started to grow back. I tried waxing once too, thinking I was being a sexy for my hubby. There is NOTHING SEXY about being in so much pain, and bleeding-- yes bleeding that you can't have sex. Besides, my hubby was laughing so hard at me that I was not in the mood anyway.

  • I can't see it so I cant shave it. I personally don't care if it's shaved or not. I've told my boyfriend that if it bothered him, he could shave it for me. He hasn't so I guess it doesn't bother him. lol
