Danielle I am so sorry!!!! Big hugs to you!!!!!

 

My company doesn't have paid maternity leave but I'll be using my sick and annual leave and short term disability. I won't be returning to work so I'll be saving us as much leave as I can.

 

I will definitely be waxing for sure!!!!!

I have never waxed in my life and I don't think I want to try it either. However, I can't imagine shaving will be easy once I'm full term, so I'm not sure what I will be doing. One more thing to think about....
I don't know about the others, but I definately can't reach down there to shave like I could before. I would be afraid of the hack job I would do over going in unshaved!
Trace offered to help me out, but I am unsure about that. I guess what is the difference between that and having him see me with my feet in stirrups delivering the baby! :)

I started getting waxed every three weeks in preparation for this day way down the road. My BFF is due in a week and she was like "dude - start waxing now because I am a hairy beast and can only shave by feel." We are equally as hairy. She also said she can't start now bc it would be too painful bc of all the extra blood in her body.

So sorry to hear that! But, it's great that you're already thinking of trying again!! Hang in there.

I can use my vacation time, and sick if I choose.
I did read online that about 39% only receive it paid.
I get 6 or 8 weeks paid through STD and then if I'm eligible for the new NJ law, another 6 weeks. And, if I'm eligible for the NJ leave act, I can take up to 18 weeks total (6 or 12 of them paid, again depending on my eligibility). I know of a friend who works for a very small company and had to use PTO to pay for maternity leave, it sucks!!! sad.gif

Are you ladies planning on getting waxed before you go into labor? I hear since we are ultra sensitive down there during this time that it hurts really bad. I don't know if it matters to the hospital or not- I think they used to shave the area, but read that they don't always now.
I know in the event I won't really care what it looks like, but I have been thinking about it.
The girl that does my wax now said that after around 8m, it will be too painful but I have a very high pain tolerence and told her that we'll see how it goes. I would hate to shave though b/c it makes me very very itchy! :) LOL If I can tolerate it, wax all the way!!!

And while we're on the cooch topic, has anyone elses hair down there been growing like crazyhuh.gif? I am generally not very hairy and can usually go without shaving or waxing for a while before it has to be done but lately, the hair has been growing super fast and extra extra long!!!!!! and only there, not the legs or underarms!!!! What gives? sad.gif

Hey everyone!! I never thought I would be joining this thread so soon before my wedding and also because I didnt think I was able to get pregnant but I am now pregnant!! I went to the Dr on Tuesday and since I had irregular periods they did an ultrasound to date my pregnancy. I am 8 weeks, they said the baby looks good and the heartbeat was 176bpm and my due date is Aug 30. They also suggested I see a specialist to do some tests since I am 30yrs old. Does this sound normal to you guys?? Thanks and I hope everyone is doing well!!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
