How often do you shave?

I am 7 months pregnant and find shaving a hassle now. I only shave about once a week if I am feeling motivated, usually it's once every couple of weeks. Just curious as to how often you other pregnant ladies shave? I don't want to feel like the only hairy one out there!! :)

  • Trust me, you're not! :) Haha, I gave up a few weeks ago, it's too much of a pain, and quite frankly, I just don't care! Lol .. so no, you're not the only one.

    I'm 36 weeks and really, I don't plan on shaving until the baby comes! :)

  • I cannot stand sandpaper legs. I am six months pregnant and shave every single day.

  • Shave? I hardly do that when I'm not pregnant! But amazingly enough, I shaved the night I went into labor.

  • Yeah that is gross to not shave before you go into labor and I did up till I had my daughter and with my son too, and I wasn't harry down there when I was in the hostpital either. Try looking into a mirror maybe for you who can;t see down there.
