Pregnant after 35

Holy ouch WTF was I thinking

while ttc I gave up my bikini waxes. I felt like my chemical pregnancy happened when I first started and couldn't get pregnant while doing them. well I got pregnant a couple months after stopping (not sure if it was related). I was then afraid if I did it all the blood would rush away from the baby so tonight was the first time since I hit 13 weeks. 

Holy mother f-ER did it hurt. I was ready to say screw this and hop off the table. Omg I never wanted to cry so badly. And I can't even drown my sorrow in wine.

Re: Holy ouch WTF was I thinking

  • That pain scares me worse than labor! That's why I just keep it trimmed. I use a buzzer with the smallest attachment because I once knicked my labia using no attachment.
    Now my belly is getting bigger so it's harder to see.... thinking I might just let it grow.
  • Nope nope nope. Everything is soooooooo sensitive down there right now. I've always been an "au naturale" girl, but especially right now!

  • I'm with @redheadbride15 "au naturale" all the way.
    @lillebowski23 ummmmm ouch!!!! WTF that must have sucked!
  • Wow, I disagree! I didn't think it was any worse than usual. Keep going and the pain will not be as bad. I haven't gone in 8 weeks and I am dreading going now but that's my fault. 
  • @Goldsgirl9 it was about 4/5 months for me. So I was definitely overdo which didn't help. 
    I'll suck it up and keep going since I know grooming only gets harder. But I wish I could get epidural during it.

    I've only ever had my eyebrows waxed, and that was painful enough! A bikini wax while pregnant sounds like torture. I try to "trim it up" now and then, but at 32 weeks it's more an exercise in not accidentally mutilating myself rather than grooming. 

    @Jenniferk08 Your dog is beautiful! 
  • @mthoomom thank you. 

    My my lip and eyebrow hurt more than usual but I hope it gets better.

  • I have always done most of my razor work sight unseen, so as long as I can comfortably reach everything, I think I'll be okay.

    @emgee27 I love the image of Jesus shaving your naughty bits.  :p

    RE says the low egg count is likely causing my recurrent pregnancy loss. Less eggs results in more aneuploidy.
