    Default Brazilian or g string wax??

    I know this topic had probably been done to death but...
    Bub is due in about four weeks. I haven't had Brazilian done in over a year!! I usually trim and am a bit more 'ahem' natural!!!
    But I'm wondering if I should get tidied up??? Does it really hurt more than usual? I know once I'm in labour I won't care what's happening down there but I'm thinking after might be 'cleaner'.
    So... Brazilian, g string or nothing!?!?

    Default Brazilian or g string wax??

    I think waxing freakin hurts too!! That's why I'm scared about getting it done while pregnant.

    Brazilian is all off... Everything.
    G string leaves a strip but tidy. (So no wax on the really ouchy part of 'down there').

    I'm having a Brazilian tomorrow - which for me is all hair off! My caesarian is booked for Monday. A g-string wax usually just means the sides with hair left closer in, sometimes the bottom is also done but not always. I last had a wax 4 weeks ago and yes I did find it more painful than pre- pregnant but I think it'll just be a lot easier to care for down there without hair

    It really doesn't matter. The baby isn't going to come out of your vagina going, "Jeez woman, you could have cleaned up the place a bit!"

    If you want to, any waxing in that area could be more painful than usual, partly because you haven't done it for a while but also because the extra blood flow in the area will mean it's more tender. Obviously a brazilian is going to be more painful than a g-string wax, but it really depends on the result you want.

    Chances are it's going to be a while before you get one afterwards anyway, so tbh, I'd just leave it as it is, and save getting a brazilian until you're ready to keep maintaining it.

    I had a brazilian 2 weeks before i had DS. I usually have them anyway because i prefer them. Plus i thought it may be cleaner afterwards if i had stitches and with bleeding.

    Default Brazilian or g string wax??

    I was thinking about the clean issue. But was also worried about it growing back while there are stitches!!
    I'm not worried about aesthetics... Only worried about getting it done pain wise and also (tmi alert) the discharge I'm getting as pregnancy progresses. I don't want to be embarrassed at the wax!!
    (Though I do get that labour will be more painful. )
