Belly Rubs- Yay or Nay?
Tue, 10-09-2012 - 8:01am

Everyone loves a pregnant belly--- but some people love it a bit too much!  How do you feel about other people touching your baby bump?  Are you okay with it or does it drive you crazy?  Is it okay for certain people to touch your belly but not others?

i'd feel weird about strangers rubbing my belly, but if it's people i know, i don't mind.

 I think it's hard for anyone to resists when it comes to pregnancy and babies. I have had complete strangers come up to me and rub my belly as well as family and friends. While it's a little wierd for a stranger to do it, I know they have well meaning intentions, so I guess I don't mind.

i dont mind when its someone i know, and they usually ask. when its strangers, i feel like it really crosses a personal space line.
