how many of you mamas.....

only shave in the winter if you have a doctors appt? I know I let my legs go for a while between shavings unless I have an appt.

  • I shave in the winter when I start to gross myself out. Probably around every 2-3 weeks LOL. I tell my kids Im growing a forest on my legs. But not really. I dont really have alot of hair on my legs which is weird I know. I have patches.

  • I am 30 weeks and shave daily. It is habit for me and I feel uncomfortable if I don't.

    It won't be long though until I know that I won't be able to anymore because of my constricting belly and then I will go to my GF who waxes and get it taken care of that way.

    I am NOT stuck up or snobby. I just have man hair on my legs if I don't shave daily.

  • I'm lucky enough to not be very hairy :) I only shave if I'm going to the pool or wearing a short skirt and even then I don't even have any hair to speak of on my thighs so it's always just to my knee!

    So in short, I only shave when the mood strikes me :)

  • when i was pregnant i would shave very rarely cause it was hard for me.. only when i was going to the drs maybe a time before if my legs were lucky. (i couldn't shave my crotch though at all after a certain point) I remember going to the dr once and i had to put the gown on for him to check me and i forgot to shave! I was apologizing so much ahhaa. He was just like really.. its okay you'd be surprised how often i see this and how nasty of things i really seee.. this doesn't even phase me LOL

  • When I was preggo, I stopped growing hair on my legs. It was the wierdest thing. I didn't notice it right away. I shaved on Easter so I could wear a skirt and then before I knew it it was the end of May and I hadn't shaved and yet, no hair! It was awesome! Even now (DS is four months tomorrow) leg hair growth is very slow. My underarms are another story though!!

  • ha ha.. I shave my legs when I want nookie. Pits are always shaved- after almost 13 years together (4 married) my hubby finally mentioned the other night he prefers if I keep my pits shaved. lol...

  • Yeah, being pregnant in the winter keeps me from shaving! lol! I'm 34 wks, so it's literally almost impossible! I only shave when I have to go to the doctor, which thanks for reminding me, is tomorrow!!
