Did you do this for your birth?

Did you groom "down there" for the birth?

I'm pregnant with my first so I'm trying to plan for everything. My mom and SO's mom will be present for our birth, I'm not sure how I feel about his mom seeing my hoo-ha, but I'm sure at that point she'll be the least of my worries.

I doubt anyone is going to notice or give any thought about it.  I always remove everything but it got harder toward the end so it was a little more than usual.  This time I have been keeping up with waxing.  Do what makes you comfortable.  Not sure if you are thinking of removing everything or just some trimming but keep in mind if you want everything out and you shave it will itch and get uncomfy.  Also in case you need stitches at least you will be all clean down there.  Waxing is definitely better than shaving.

By that time I couldnt see let alone reach down there to do that. My mom husband and mother in law were all in the room I was more worried about getting my son out them what I looked like down there.

See? I figured nobody would care about my lady bits, but I will care. Haha. I've never waxed anything on my body so I'm not sure what to expect or anything like that. I figure SO will shave me prior to giving birth, which we've already kind of have talked about, but I'm just curious if there are any ladies out there who have kind of the same thought process as I do.

Well, not specifically for the birth, I just do all the time. I use an electric shaver so I don't even need to see.

Nope and when I had a repeat cs, I didn't even think to shave my scar and the nurse had to.

No, I didn't. I do a little fixing up the best I can, but I don't go nuts over it and I don't start grooming before the hospital or anything. Really it's the last thing on my mind!

Nope, I couldn't reach and was worried about cutting myself. Trust me, at that point and time. It is the last thing on your mind.
