Pregnancy Shaving: Running a clean ship when you can't see the deck...

I'm a mere 20 weeks pregnant at this point and already, bending at the waist is a thing of the past. I have made my last pass at a clean shave of the lady bits and know that even in three days, this won't be possible again in the normal fashion. Shaving in other areas isn't a problem: my body hair is blonde and as such, I've never shaved my legs to begin with. It's specifically the pubic region that's the issue here.
Obviously, other ladies have been here before. I'm assuming most of y'all got your partners to assist in the process. As much as I love my partner, I'm not sure I trust him (or anyone) with a razor and my genitalia. Also, that would work great as foreplay, but I'm not sure how it would translate on the practical day-to-every-other-day general maintenance side of things. So, if getting him to do it really is the best solution, I could use some advice on how to get over the initial fear of "ZOMG YOU HAVE A RAZOR."
Any tricks? Mirrors?
Just letting it grow back is, of course, an option, but my partner's preference is for clean-shaven and I would prefer to keep the status quo if at all possible.
