As soon as my water broke, I got in the shower and shaved my legs and did some "ladyscaping" around the area. That earned me some mild scolding from the nurse, because my baby was head down but not engaged, and all that moving around could have ended in a prolapsed cord and seriously complicated all my vaginal birth plans... go figure! -- bailarina2005
