  • Ive heard of people doing it, and i thought about it. I ve never been waxed down there though, so i was worried that the pain might actually send me into labor!!! call the place that you would go to and see what they say about it

  • I've known lots of women who've done this in their last trimester because they couldn't see to shave anymore. It's totally ok.

  • I think it just hurts more due to blood flow? Never done it :P

  • It should be fine unless you are at risk for preterm labor for some reason (multiples, hx of preterm labor, gestational diabetes, preeclampsie). I agree it will probably hurt more. I would check with your OB if you're at all concerned.
