  • My in-laws are always rubbing mine =P I don't mind at all. If it were a stranger, that'd weird me out.

  • I had a guy I didn't know do that to me once. I freaked out of him and he quickly apologized. Then, my ex's mom tried to do it and I told her to back off.

  • tnm786, I have a large Dominican family, and at first I didn´t mind it, but I think that IF I do have a second pregnancy no one will touch. Lol.. Too many hands on my belly.

  • lol @luisa, my inlaws are all Cuban and there are relatives of relatives of relatives at every family gathering and every single one (people my hubby probably doesnt even know) want to touch! it's even worse when the baby actually comes.. that's the only time i tell people to back off, dont want strange foreign hands all over my newborn!

  • I don't think anyone ever tried. I had my kids in the 1960's and people were much more mannerly and less "in your face" than they are NOW. But I don't think it would bother me. I have no fears or hang-ups.

  • Yeah, it bothers me when people touch without asking.

  • I personally didnt like anyone touching my belly unless I knew them on a personal level. I had a stranger touch it one time and I kinda pulled back and gave her a weird look.
