    I always have a full wax (think they call it a Vegas :think: ) every 4-6 weeks but have been avoiding it since I found out I was pg. Well i've booked one for today but I'm worried that it will hurt more :shakehead:

    It's a wedding present for my hubby :rotfl:

    Anyone else had one done while pg?

    I haven't been waxed for years! :shock: Just use a razor in the bath these days, though downstairs has been neglected recently cos I can't even see it properly anymore! :lol:

    I do find plucking my eyebrows a bit more painful, but I think thats cos they seem to grow thicker and quicker!

    I'm sure once the first strip comes off it will be fine, and it's for a good cause :D

    I cant see mine either :lol:

    It is a good cause but i think i might end up swearing this time :rotfl:

    I'm leaving now... wish me luck! I've read that paracetomol half an hour before can help so I'm going to try that!

    Thanks mm

    Plucking my eyebrows definitely hurts more.

    I have decided to become an overgrown monkey :rotfl:

    Well yeah it hurt more... And I'm bruised :shock:

    She said the reason for that is she can't put pressure on my lower tummy like before so my skin wasn't taut enough.

    She also said that I wouldn't be able to have another full wax until after baby is born

    tried doing mine a few days ago but it became too painful, and was so sore afterwards, it never usually hurts so much, so i think i might be avoiding waxing too much but dont wanna let myself go either lol
