A woman has revealed she had no idea she was pregnant until she decided to get a bikini wax.
TikTok user Laura, who goes by the name Crimpytoses, was in the middle of her first-ever Brazilian wax at 17 when the beautician made the discovery.
“That’s how I found out I was pregnant when I got my first Brazilian wax,” she said on TikTok, which has since racked up more than 25,500 views.
“I was 17, I was super awkward and I was wearing a short skirt, so I was like, ‘Can I keep my skirt on and just pull it up and I’ll take off my underwear?'”
Laura said waxing was “super painful” and that it felt hot against her skin, so she kept screaming in pain, despite the beautician’s promise that the wax wasn’t too hot at all.
“Finally she looks at me and says, ‘You’re not pregnant, are you?'” Laura continued.
“And I wasn’t like at all!”
But then Laura had to really think about when her last period was and she realized that she really could be pregnant.
“I had confirmed it,” she said, “but the first person to even suspect it was the lady who made the Brazilian wax, because she said, ‘Bish, you weak!'”
Commenters on TikTok expressed their shock, and some shared their own stories about the strange ways they found out they were pregnant too.
“My friend found out from her sugaring lady that she was pregnant because her color changed down there and she was a regular,” one person commented.
Another added: “OMG what a way to find out!”
“I thought they would say you were really swollen down there,” chipped in another.
One person recalled: “I’ve been waxed for years but stopped as soon as I got pregnant. It was sooo painful!”
Another added: “A friend thought it was her [pregnant] and wanted to do a test but didn’t want to do it alone so she asked me to do it with her.”
