Very nice article. I certainly love this site. Keep writing!

What a stuff of un-ambiguity and preserveness of valuable experience on the topic of unexpected emotions.

Nice post. I learn something totally new and challenging on sites I stumbleupon everyday. It will always be exciting to read through articles from other authors and use something from other web sites.

It's going to be finish of mine day, except before ending I am reading this fantastic post to improve my experience.

That's the kind of image that i really thing is super image like. If more images very real like this were out there we'd be super full of graet images in the world.

Everything is very open with a precise description of the issues. It was truly informative. Your website is very useful. Thanks for sharing! - VISIT X

True, shaving is a convenient and cost-effective way to remove all the hair, but it only makes the hair grow thicker. It can also leave a dark spot. Waxing fares better since it removes all the hair, and it slows down hair growth. You just need to deal with some pain for a while, especially when you're preggy. Ouch!

I wish everyone here in the first Merry Christmas!

Was well written

I got waxed before I went on vacation to Jamaica back in May, so I was about five months pregnant then. They say that waxing hurts more when you're pregnant. THEY'RE NOT KIDDING. I'm not a huge fan of waxing, but I usually get a bikini wax before vacations, and I often maintain it over the summer. So I'm used to the idea. This time though I was literally jumping off the table, crying out in pain, with tears & mascara running down my face. It was awful. I had to waddle back to work (did it during my lunch hour) and try not to move too much the rest of the day. I have not had another one since then, and I don't give a damn if the entire hospital sees my au natural cooch when I give birth any day. Beats getting waxed again. :P

I remember being that pregnant and having a gi-normous, all-encompassing pussy; just another one of those things no one tells you about in pregnancy books or girly circles.

The worst part is I used to sweat like a crackwhore in church and the gargantuan, swollen 'Bertha' would produce so much sweat that I carried baby wipes and powder w/me at ALL times.

Never had my box waxed, but I'm sure nobody would be interested in a nappy mustache down there...
'till next time...

This afternoon I will endure the pain that is the Brazilian Wax. I'm addicted to them. Faithful to them for the past 6 years now and will very likely (one day) haul my 70 year old v-jay-jay in there for one. Not to mention my man loves the result and that means play time!

My advice, pop two Tylenol one hour before hand. Have a friend drive you there, so that you drop a swig of bourbon is helpful too.

That's funny, because I had my first bikini wax a few months after my first daughter was born. The woman waxing me apologized every time she thought it was going to hurt me, but I just laughed and laughed. Because after childbirth, you know, what was that?

But then again, this wasn't Brazilian. Also, I was not pregnant anymore at that point.

I used to wax. It was like watching a panicked boxer psyche himself up for a bout--C'mon, ok, shake it off, you can do it, ready, ready ok pull.

Now it's shaving and suffering the consequences.

After 3 kids, I have spent time looking into those plastic surgeons that make it a beautiful pink petunia again...but then I'd feel the need to run around ala Britney screaming "look how pretty my cooter is again!"

You are one brave woman! :)

I love that last line....ha,ha,ha...blind pilot...ha,ha,ha:-)

Oh my god. I could never summon up enough courage to do that. You are BRAVE, woman. BRAVE.

You did that when PREGNANT? Why do they make me feel like such a tramp when I ask for it at the salon????

If you can find it, No Scream Cream is fabulous. It doesn't take away the pain, but it takes the edge off. Like a cocktail for your bikini area.

I could never wax when I was pregnant, I was too chicken, everything was just a little too sesitive!

I had a bikini wax when I was pregnant and ended up with bruises. The hair was gone, but in its place were to gigantic bruises where the wax had been.

My VERY FIRST brazilian wax happened when I was preggo with baby #2. I don't know how I survived but I've been waxing ever since.

I learned the hard way this is no do-it-yourself kinda thing:


I might get a brazilian wax (never had one before) and afraid I migh scare the spa lady. I don't know...I guess they have seen worse!

You know, I can't think of any of my neighbors I want to know that well.

I've had my own wax disasters, http://www.JenniferSuarez.com/Journal/oneBlog.cfm?journal_entry_pk=375

So I can tooooootally relate to your pain - literly.

I still haven't been brave enough to get a bikini wax! I've always said I wanted to - just never have.

And I made my husband do the shaving for me while I was pregnant!

@backpackingdad - my husband will be glad that you assume he has a gigantic head bashing penis.

and "delte" obviously means "delete and I was laughing so hard at my own comment that I couldn't proof read it"

Well, without all of that extra cushioning now you really do need to be on guard against the dented head.

Holy graphic image Batman.

"post" or "delte"? hmmm.....


Ha you funny thing!

I was just talking about man and woman "scaping" the other day and then realized that most everyone I talk to likes to keep theirs trimmed in some shape or form - man and woman. Immediately I panic because, though I trim the hedge, I do not always go to such an extent. So like you, I may have to brave the wax!


You are brave!

I have been thinking about this very seriously the last few weeks. I am also hugely pregnant. Since I usually just trim with scissors I am a little apprehensive about it. I would just do a trim but my arms aren't long enough now. Who knew you would need not only a weirdly positioned mirror but arms the length of a mountain ape? :)

Waxing sucks. I had a Brazilian a couple of years ago and didn't know what I was getting into. That lady put me in some compromising positions. I told her that people usually pay ME to be able to do this to me but she was getting away with it and I had to pay her. How is that fair? I was kidding, of course.

OUCH...I got a wax at nine months....it took months before I was willing to brave that again!

HAHAHA. I found this post on StumbleUpon and almost fell out of my chair laughing.

I love that last line.

OMG. I wouldn't be caught naked when I'm pregnant, let alone doing the wax thang.

I, too, ventured into the world of waxing... albeit the do-it-yourself kind where you go to Sally's Beauty Supply, buy your kit, nevermind the instructions and then sit and cry on your bathroom floor when the fucking wax won't come off your... erm... leg.

Hello, razors... I missed you.

Oh my goodness, I kept up with the waxing all through my pregnancy, but it was SO much more painful than when I wasn't pregnant!! Possibly because I wasn't able to pop 4 advil right before I went, but whatever. OUCH!!!

I'm with Waltz in Exile.

Still laughing at the title.

Holy Moses.

You continue to rise above and beyond the call of sanity! I salute you.

I cannot imagine having one of my neighbors do something like that, but maybe it's just a "sisterhood" thing. I mean, what do you guys say to each other when you're out getting the newspaper, or borrowing those cups of sugar?

I think she should have to strip down and lay on a be-stirruped table in YOUR basement for awhile, just to even things out.

I also braved the bikini wax late in pregnancy. It doesn't feel good, no, but it was much easier than I thought.

That website about Ecstatic Birth was a really interesting, kinda strange read. Thanks for linking it.

Also, I am wondering how on earth I am going to control my own "burning bush" once my baby gets in the way. I don't think I can convince my husband to trim it for me, but I am sure as hell going to try...

You're brave, Lady. 9th month I just went the route of an electric razor on the visible parts and called it a day.

But oh, the horrors of a Brazilian wax. Asked for a bikini wax the day before my wedding. Got the whole 9 instead and literally bled out of every pore. Didn't see that until after I put on my adorable white bridal lingerie. White lace and pin sized red spots. Polka dots? Sexy.

Luckily, we were too tired from the wedding and honeymoon travel to even test that. Had a day to heal before the "party".

I've never understood the whole bikini wax thing even when not pregnant. There are much less painful ways to remove that hair. You sure you hadn't been drinking? That's the only way I'd get a bikini wax, pregnant or not.

Best. Blog. Title. EVER.
Thank you; I am going to laugh all day.

Ouch. You're brave to endure a bikini wax PERIOD. Forget being uber pregnant.

Just wanted to say, I'm a big fan of your blog. Keep on keeping on. And best of luck with #3!

You are one BRAVE woman!

I have to say, you are a brave woman to endure a bikini wax while THAT PREGNANT. Although I've seriously considered it, I've never actually had a bikini wax myself (more or less b/c I'm a chicken shit) and I don't think I'd ever be able to it pregnant no less...unless maybe I was drunk. Ahhhahaha.
