People go back and forth on this type of question. Some are going to say it is OK and some are going to tell you no. The reason for no is not to cause undue stress, and your skin will change during pregnancy which means you could be more sensitive then normal and react badly to the wax, plus you don't want to burn yourself possibly risk infection.

lol i have no idea what the actually risks are, ive never looked into this but if your familiar with waxing and handle it well then im sure you would be fine...i know lots of mommas that keep up their waxing in other more sensitive areas and have no problem... personally i would do it too... but i agree always see what you Dr has to say in regards :) congrats! and good luck!

As a cosmetologist I wax many expecting moms in many sensitive areas. I asked my obgyn & she said its completely safe.

I actually have them thread it, instead of waxing. It is a bit awkward but I'm already there for my eyebrows and lip lol so she does my tummy too :-)

Your skin can be really sensitive to hot wax.  I wont wax while im pregnant just because i burned easily before and my skin is even more sensitive now.  But it depends on the person, you should just ask your dr next time you see them.
