I was just wondering how long it typically takes you ladies to shower. Strange question I know, but I am constantly being bitched at by DH to cut down the time of my showers. It generally takes me about 10 minutes maybe a few minutes more some days. That is with being 6 months pregnant and shaving from underarms down to ankles! I though all things considered I was doing pretty well lol

Oh well that doesn't bother us because anyone can use the bathroom or brush teeth etc. if anyone is in the shower.  We have 1 bathroom and 6 people so it isn't optional usually.

Quoting Amybarnhart11:

Oh trust be it irritates me to no end! In his defense he isn't complaining about water consumption, but about that we are a house of 4 people and 1 bathroom! Someone is ALWAYS complaining they have to pee if the shower is in use. I swear it's like they hear running water and automatically have to go. Then again my DS AND DH I just tell them if they have to go so badly...go outside! 


Quoting MrsRinehart2010:

 I dnt know I take long showers though because I like standing in the hot water. No offense at all but I would be aggravated if my husband bitched at me like I was a child about how long my showers were lol.

I shower with my dd and it takes us 20ish minutes. If I shower alone its about 10.
When we had only 1 bathroom, I always asked everyone if they needed to use it before I went in. My dh did the same. Maybe try asking them, while looking them in the face and/or touching them on the arm/shoulder (to make sure you have their attention).

15 min without leg shaving. 20-25 with shaving.
I have a lot of shower rituals like my face scrub, then face wash, leaving conditioner in hair for a couple minutes...etc.

About 10, unless its at night and I am getting to unwind a bit. I think you are doing damn good, I'm not pregnant and don't shave my legs half the time :)

I would tell him to suck a dick.  Don't let him dictate what you do in the bathroom, that is ridiculous.

showers/baths are *MY* time.  I take long ass showers, usually 25-40 minutes.

It depends on if I have to shave. Without shaving about 20 mins with shaving about 30. My dh takes 30 min showers and has short hair so I'm usually the one bitching at him.lol

I love how men complain about out shower time!
How bout I tell you to shave half Your body, wash hair that's at least 3 times longer and thicker than yours, wash all the nooks and crannies and then we'll see how long You take Mister!
Lol
