  • I never really had/have strangers do that to me, and I've never done that to someone before.

    I guess if it bothers you that bad, you could always just start rubbing the person's belly in return, commenting on how cute it is lol.

  • Its like a hand magnet! Everytime I see a fmily member they are trying to rub my belly. Now a stranger is different, i have not had that experience, but I doubt they would try it to another pregnant woman after ward

  • I've had it happen. I think its just some people are amazed to witness life being made. It is the most beautiful thing. Everyone thats touched my stomach was overjoyed by the blessing I had inside me. It brought tears to one woman (who I had never seen before or after) Tho it freaks us pregnant women out, I think its a compliment really saying what a beautiful thing your body is doing!
