  • yup and i tell them not to. my sister when she found out i was preg started poking my belly every time she saw me, til i was finally like ummm hello and started poking her back. when he starts moving if shes around i'll tell her and let her feel him move, same with others but don't just randomly rub my belly, its still my belly

  • If I were irritable then yes it would...but for the most part I didnt care. I know its just curiousity and them showing their love. Now if it were a stranger Id be weirded out. If you're not comfortable just ask her to not do it so much that it makes you uncomfortable

  • nah, never really bothered me unless it was a stranger. one of life's marvels. I loved having that beautiful life inside of me and showing it off

  • It doesn't bother me unless I don't know the person very well or if someone is constantly touching it. My in-laws have a friend who I've only met a few times, but every time I'm around her, she literally super glues herself to my stomach. It is soooooo annoying. And sometimes strangers will come up and touch my stomach and I always get like nervous or anxiety or something about it because I'm scared they are going to touch it too hard and hurt me or I'll almost jump and then my little boy goes crazy.
