Thanks ladies! I've read online that nair is not good to use while preg.... I'm not so sure how true that is.... nair is so much easier to use, and it cuts dwn on bumps. I have been using both methods....

I personally never risked any chemicals near me, and especially not  on me when I was pregnant. I didn't want to take any chances with the baby, plus I have sensitive skin, and once I got pregnant, things I'd used for years started causing allergic reactions. So, I would stick to shaving, even though it's kind of a pain.

 I wouldn't recommend using any type of chemicals while pregnant. especially that close to where baby is about to come out of haha. I always just stick to shaving. use conditionor instead of soap or shaving cream... it works so well and doesn't leave skin irritated

i never use nair. I hate the smell, and I'm native American, so I have super dark, coarse, thick hair. It never works on me. Lol...
