I used to be a regular waxer of the lady bits. Every 3 or 4 weeks, I dutifully went in for the full removal of all hair from down there. It has been quite a while — November to be exact. You can imagine how gnarly it has gotten down there. Like so gnarly that gnarly is the exact appropriate word to describe the situation. The situation was so bad, I was ashamed to let my husband see me naked. And I felt gross. I hate having hair down there.
So at 11w1d, I decided to go for it: The Long Overdue Brazilian Bikini Wax. As I trekked the many blocks cross and downtown, my tension was building up. I had heard so many horror stories about pain when waxing while pregnant. On my way, I had the unfortunate displeasure of smelling a guy who smelled like fish sticks. That was almost enough to send me home. Blech! Well, I made it. I went back to the room and stripped from the waist down and then my lady came in. I told her my news right away and she was SO excited for me that she hugged me…twice! My vagina de-hairing lady has never hugged me so this was quite the momentous occasion! She was absolutely tickled pink (or blue) for us! So cute.
Now on to the details of the actual wax. I’ve always timed my waxes to happen right after AF when you’re less sensitive down there. As you get closer to AF, things get more sensitive and the more sensitive, the more painful. Since I am not expecting AF for a very long time, I didn’t have anything to gauge wax timing. I was nervous! But, I would have to say today was as painful as getting waxed right before AF. It wasn’t nearly as bad as I thought it would be. Whew! What a relief! I mean it wasn’t pain-free, but it wasn’t terrible either. My legs were really shaky after but I don’t know if that was because I was nervous or what.
And then something magical happened. As I was paying, I noticed tingling down there. I think waxing brought life back to my vagina! Amen! I felt something! I’ve been a closed up nervous nelly since ET back in November and it feels wonderful to know that there’s actually blood flowing down there! And I feel clean and neat again! And beautiful!
