How do you feel about belly rubs?

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'm just amazed that people don't ask. I'm honestly used to it at this point even though I don't have a huge belly yet. I'm sure it will get worse as I get bigger. This weekend I was out with my sister and told her to feel the baby kick since it was the first I'd been able to feel from the outside. The next thing I know there are like 4 different people's hands on my belly! The one guy I had just met and I was just really surprised that he just jumped right in! So far it's not driving me crazy, but we'll see.

Honestly, I am already getting annoyed at DH rubbing my belly more often - I would probably lose it if a stranger did it.

I am not showing yet, though, so it's not an issue right now.
