Personal Question. Shaving...

So I can't see my... Parts anymore. And I'm so used to shaving but I don't want to shave if I can't see of course. I'm thinking of just trying to squat and shave hoping I can have Some sort of luck. How do you ladies do it?

I am in the same boat as you Hun I am only 25 weeks and can't see down there I just use a mirror as I can't hack not shaving down tthere would make me feel dirty in a way lol

I've always been heavy and have never been able to see it so I put one foot up on something so one knee is bent and  just shave blindly by feel but if you are really nervous about it you can stand with ur legs apart over a mirror.

I haven't been able to see down there in forever! And it's really uncomfortable for me to even shave my legs due to the really bad back pain that I have so bending that far forward is seriously out of the question. I hate it but I have decided that I'm not even going to worry about it until I start getting checked and of course delivery.

I'm still kind of little but bending hurts my back I put.one leg on the tub or I sit on the side of the tub with one leg up it helps much

I shave blindly. I tried sitting on my itty bitty counter infront of the mirror, but that proved to be way too much work. But if you have a good size counter space and a mirror, that's the way I would do it! I've asked my man, but I don't know how I actually feel about that as I've never had someone else do it for me and it feels weird. So I just do it. Lol.

I let my boyfriend help me. He doesn't mind and I Don't mind letting him. That way I get shaved with out having to struggle and hurt myself lmao.  He's very careful So He doesn't cut me Or anything and since He can actually see What He's doing He doesn't miss anything

Yep, same as above. Baby daddy helps me cause I definitely can't see either. About to pop so definitely want to be clean down there. Have to pee in a cup twice a week, the last few times I completely missed the cup because I can't see anything!

Could always try veet hair removal cream or something along those lines.

I might try the mirror thing or try squatting And a mirror because we have a stand up shower and it's pretty spacious. My guy won't even shave my legs because he's a afraid to cut me, but I got That covered, so he will Not be welcomed in attempting to shave me down There anytime soon. Lol. Just starting to get frustrated 1)because I know He doesn't like it But 2) I'm used to being clean shaved and after a certain point of not shaving I get itchy w all the hair. So I'll try some of these ideas.

This may sound gross but I am 25 weeks tomorrow and I stopped shaving my you know at 22 weeks. I personally like it better not shaved. When I wasn't pregnant I shaved every day or every other day. Couldn't stand hair at all. But now I just shave my under arms and my legs and leave my lady parts alone. My husband and i are not allowed to have sex so maybe it's a way for me to make it easier for us. Haha but I don't trust myself with a razor somewhere where I can't see and I'm only allowed to take a 10 minute shower being on strict bedrest!

Try using a trimmer instead. Where I am you can get little trimmers at the supermarket with the rest of men's razors. You won't cut yourself with them

I use this hair removal spray by sally hansen or the Nair and you just spray it on and leave it on for 10 mins, hop in the shower and all the hair slides off. Lasts longer than shaving, had a bad experience with shaving so i stopped and found this great option other than waxing because its not painful. I'm 24 weeks and can no longer see down there so this spray is a life saver.
