Do you think you will mind anyone rubbing your belly when you're bigger?

Do you prefer they ask first or does it not matter?


When I was pg with Spencer I never had a stranger rub my tummy but there were a few family members that did and didn't ask beforehand but it never bothered me. I loved being pregnant and loved my big belly. It made me love it even more when someone else admired it and wanted to feel the baby.

I have personal space issues so I absolutely HATE people touching my stomach.

Unless I know you really well, and am comfortable with you- don't even ask.. you won't get a pleasant response.

the worst is strangers thinking your stomach is open-territory.

the one that bugged me the most was my MIL. Sounds weird, but i'd never met the woman and instantly she wanted to poke and prod at me to "find out the position the baby is in" (this was with Holden of course)
I wanted to jab her eyes out

I sound so mean, but I just really hate being groped

My mother has already started. Next time I might just smack her! She never asks and claims its her RIGHT as its HER grandchild. Yeah and my body!!

So, basically I hate it. I don't mind Rodger or Jasmine doing it, but that's different. I'm thinking of getting a "Hands Off" shirt.

It only really bothered me (with DS) when complete strangers would try to touch my belly. It didn't happen often but it did happen a few times.

I don't really mind family and friends touching. Most of them ask first anyway.

It only bothered me when a stranger would do it. Last time it bothered me that my intended father wouldn't touch my belly to feel his daughter kicking.

I am a very private person but strangely enough it never bothered me. I loved it when people touched my belly. I guess I felt that they were connecting with my daughter and didn't even really think of it as my stomach at all. It really surprised me because I would have thought for sure that it would have bothered me.

i think it will def bother me but I'll have to deal. It would be nice if they asked first, but then I'd be tempted to say no and give them a dirty look. So its best for them to sneak in before I catch them

I'm not a touchy feely kind of person, so it bugs me when people touch it. Even my Mom gets mad because I don't let her touch it. I was A LOT better about it with Emily than I was Kayla, so maybe this time I'll be even better. Now DH and my kids, of course they can, it doesn't bother me. Anyone else, depends on my mood. lol

When I was pregnant with Owen a stranger was talking to my mom about the pregnancy because I'm not a socialable person and I just went off and came back and they put this hand on my stomach I jumped back and said what are you doing. My MIL (I don't like her) did it while I was pregnant with KJ and I ripped off her head.

Don't touch me unless I tell you to.

However i don't think i will want people just randomly touching me and sticking their ears to my belly?? This is my first baby... It's going to be so weird...

I don't care if they rub my belly as long as its someone I know. Strangers can keep their hand s to themselves.

I don't like people touching my belly unless it's family, and even then I feel kinda awkward. I would prefer no one touch my belly, but as long as it's family, then I won't say anything.
