  • No it's not dumb. it's better than having a complete wierdo coming to your house, and you be defenseless. I would rather be prepared and nothing happen, than unprepared and something happen. You know?

  • Best would be for you to be accompanied by somebody, preferably male or a strong-looking woman.

  • haha. You are braver then me. I got really paranoid when I was preggers. I wouldn't even let the maintenance guys in the apartment unless my husband was home!

  • I don't think it's dumb, you never know who you'll meet when you're posting stuff on craigslist. The best advice though is to have a friend or someone you trust accompany you. No point in you having to defend your self when you;re pregnant. Then you're risiking the baby

  • first of all, you never know who is coming to your place, so I don't think its dumb to worry about it. I wouldn't make anything you bring OBVIOUS just because then he might think your the wierdo who's gonna attack him.. you want to approach the situation carefully, but be on your guard anyways. If there is anyone else who can go with you, take along a buddy cuz two pairs of hands/fists/feet/etc.. are better than just a pregnant woman. No offese, I'm sure you're capable, but just to be safe I"d make sure someone came with me.
