    Im posting on hear to offer some strange advice for you ladies due soon
    Before i had my baby on tri three we discussed trimming the forest a lot - so a few days before labour i veeted, which was fine, but i needed stitches after labour... And its very painful
    I dare not veet because it will sting and i dare not shave because of the stitches.... and now its growing back... and itches like fook... which is horrible as i cant do anything because it hurts so much....
    So my advice would be to leave the pubes alone! I wish i had as when i actually went into labour i couldn't care less about the forest, especially when they are shoving stuff up your bum and stitching you up after... pubes are the nicest thing a midwife will look at!!

    Sorry for the TMI but hopefully i will save someone some discomfort!!

    Yeh honest ladies i wish someone had come back and warned me! I dont mind hair and i dont mind bald but in between is just stubbley horridness!!!

    Leave it be ladies :D

    Alice is wonderful such a laid back baby, she sleeps most of the time, last night she woke up at 5am for a feed and bum change and had to be woken up this morning for a feed! So im only having to get up for half hour in the night, couldnt ask for much better just FX it lasts!! xx

    i agree but for a different reason. i veeted the whole area a couple of weeks ago as couldnt see down there to do anything different. i wish i hadnt. its a horrible stubbly mess when growing back, very unfomfortable with ingrowing hairs and beacuse i cannot see down there its very hard to sort out the ingrowing hairs! i have to get in very twisted positions with a mirror and even then it doesnt always work!

    This may be a silly question, but if you need stitches would they shave/trim down the area around the wound first anyway?

    I dunno carly good question they didnt with me, although i had shaved before so maybe they didnt nned to i dont even know where they stiched it could be just inside but it hurts too much to check!! But im sure a little stubby patch would be better than the whole thing itching.


    Hugsy- yeh loving having a lazy baby making the most of it while it lasts!! Only awake once again last night for a feed and bum change and back to sleep within about half hour :) xx

    Yeah I'm def taking this advice! I'm gonna deal with the irritating regrowth now rather than after when I'll be uncomfortable enough anyway! Will wait until I'm fully healed before I start worrying about how down there looks lol :) x

    My local hospital actually advice you NOT to shave from one month before your duedate, due to a bigger risk of infection as well. Got a letter from them telling me this...lol!

    I went for a wax with a new girl recently.... It was hilarious when she told me I'd had a "playboy" wax.... Haahaaahaaa I'm so far from the playboy mansion right now it's funny. I have to say it was painful but only takes 15mins and well worth it as nice a neat now. Plus when it grows back there is no itching at all. If you are tempted to trim, just go for the wax!
