So I was just wondering how y'all feel about strangers rubbing your baby bump. I've never been pregnant before, but I know I'm not gonna handle it well...lol. How do you/would you ladies deal with it or handle it?

No stranger better touch my belly lol I would say please do not touch me I do not know you. That would be so weird. It is bad enough everyone in your family and dh's family is going to be rubbing it all the time but for a stranger to do that it just isnt happening.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels that way...lol. The distance between my fam and DH's family is gonna prevent belly rubbing...haha (mine live in Europe and his in another state), but I'm sure there are gonna be friends that will want to do that. I won't mind it a few times, but not all the time.

I'm not big on people, especially strangers, getting within my personal bubble when not invited. During my pregnancy with DD, though, not only did strangers not try to touch my belly, but I didn't even look pregnant until I was nearly 7 months along with the way I carried DD. It was only about the last 6 weeks of my pregnancy that I started looking pregnant more than just fat.

When I was pregnant that never happened to me. It would definitely make me feel uncomfortable!

I hope I'll be lucky enough for that not to happen to me. I think I'd flip out if someone tried to do that....lol

I think if a stranger were to ask me if they could feel my belly (like if it was an elderly woman) then I might be willing to let them. However, there is just no excuse for random people to just reach out and creepily rub bellies! LOL

Everyone I knew told me to watch out for belly rubbers when I was pregnant so I think I was surprised that I didn't meet any crazy belly rubbers. LOl!
