Waxing!

Down under waxing, is it really more painful when pregnant?

Yes. You are more swollen and have more blood flow

Re: Waxing!

Never waxed before I was pregnant, so I can't compare. All I know is OUCH! I'm not sure I'm brave enough to finish. DH did a few large strips before I finally scrambled away with tears in my eyes. Lol. I was beginning to think people are CRAZY to do this on a regular basis, but I can see how it'd be more painful when pregnant.

I've waxed pre-preg, and it wasn't bad. I had planned on getting waxed while preg, as I, uh, don't have a good enough "visual" on things to manage the situation myself anymore.

However, while I can't speak for how painful it might be, my skin during pregnancy is WAY too sensitive to risk it. I now get ingrown hairs and rashes super easily :-(. Not sure if that's true of most women, but I am terrified to find out how my lady-bits would react to such harsh treatment :-(
Pregnancy has DEFINITELY changed my skin for the worse.

Let us know what you discover! I'd be very curious to know whether it does hurt noticeably more.

It definitely hurts more when you are pregnant. It is worth it though to avoid looking like those women in the birthing videos with JUNGLES down there. I fear the nurses talking about me so I got a wax a couple of weeks before my due date with DD.

I waxed regularly before I was pregnant and pregnancy hasn't stopped me.

I honestly didn't think it was anymore painful, though by all logic it SHOULD be. My skin was definitely more sensitive to the heat of the wax, but the actual hair removal was the same old, same old. To be fair, I think I must have a high pain tolerance because everyone always says it will be much more painful during AF too and that never bothered me either.
