Can we use an epilator?

Has anyone used one while pregnant? I think they're not recommended because your skin is more sensitive but I need to try something other than shaving. I can't keep up at all I'm having to limit my shower time so I don't use all the hot water. I've also been feeling pretty bad about myself lately getting bigger, having dry skin, getting a fuzzy belly and I feel worse when I'm all prickly :'(
