  • yeah if you shave it it will get darker, mine is fine, like I mentioned above, but Im also not very "hairy" so you might wanna shave if its that bad

  • Oh yeah, mine has gotten hairy. I hate hair but I refuse to shave it because it'll come back thicker. If people ask to see my stomach, I warn them ahead of time. Nobody really pays attention anyways.
    If you want to shave it, go ahead. I don't suggest it though.

  • Go ahead and shave. My husband shaved me "downtown" during my last few months of pregnancy with my daughter and will again with this one. It would be embarrassing for me to be all "70's" down there when giving all the blood gets stuck to the hair from what I hear. K, so regarding the belly hair...yep. We pregnant women start growing hair from places we never thought possible. I'd wax or shave it. No harm done, especially if it makes you feel better. But, don't do it for people asking to see your belly. Who the heck asks that anyway? Most want to touch, not see unless it's your mom, sister or bf. You do what you feel is best for you and don't feel bad about not showing people your belly. If you want, just make a joke about it and ask, "If I show you mine, will you show me yours?" See how that grabs 'em! ;)

  • Holy crap I thought I was the only one! I HATED it...I must of plucked my belly once a day (silly I know, but I found that wax strips didnt stick very well and I would not shave my belly.) If you grab the hair from right at the base and pull slowly, you can get the hair from the root...otherwise, wax CAN work, its just MORE work.

  • I haven't grown alot, but they have gotten darker and thicker.
    I showed it to my fiance only one time because I was annoyed with it.. he just kissed me and told me it'll be gone when the baby comes. thanksfully he doesn't say rude things, but it's because he was around his mom when she was pregnant 2 years ago and he knows what pregnant women can and will do LMFAO
