Ok so who is ok with strangers touching their prego bellys and who would slap the jelly out of anyone that tried it?
Have you had a stranger try? What did you do?

LOL! I havent had anyone touch my belly yet. I'm sure once I start showing they will. I've always said that I won't touch someone's belly unless I ask first and they say yes. I don't mind my best friends and my family touching my belly, but my coworkers who don't know me very well, they better not even think about it.

It definitely depends on who it is. Family and friends are welcome to touch. But I don't want some random creepy guy at the store trying it. lol.

I actually did have this happen! I was about 7 months pregnant and some lady walked up to where i was sitting (at a restaurant) and asked to touch my belly for good luck. i told her thanks but no thanks! i wasn't rude about it or anything and kind of laughed it off like a joke but i am just not comfortable with that! Friends and Family are fine, even aquaintances but never a stranger!

I'm a, "Please folks, STEP AWAY FROM THE BELLY!!" kind of gal. I never would have guessed that I would feel that way but that's how it was w/ all 4. Besides my handsome Honey and little kidlets, it's off limits.

I actually don't mind, which is wierd because I am very shy and introverted. I had an aquaintance (only met her once) from church touch my belly last time without thinking and then she felt bad about not asking. I think people just get really excited about pregnancy and new babies, so I give them the benefit of the doubt.

I don't mind as LONG as its not a stranger.. even if they asked, NO WAY! I do NOT trust people, someone could push to hard or hit you in the belly. After workign in a prison, I always have my guard UP!

Wow! I don't know how I'm going to react to this. I have pretty severe anxiety issues and normally can only tolerate a select few people in my personal space.

I can't remember if it was DS or DD, but some lady once reached out and touched my belly saying "aww how cute". So I reached back adn rubbed her belly, she asked "what are you doing that for?" And I said, "I just wanted to see what the excitment was about rubbing a strangers belly". She gave me a very dirty look and turned aruond and left. I can be a bit snarky.

If my close friends or family members wanted to touch my belly when the baby was actually moving then thats fine but my MIL would just walk up and touch/rub me.. I told her If you touch me again then I'm going to start touching you in places that make you uncomfortable.. She didn't touch me again. I'm the type that has a personal space issue though.. I don't like people I'm not close with to touch me and I didn't think being pregnant gave everyone that right! haha

I don't mind my family or friends touching but not a stranger. I don't know what I would do if a stranger touched me. I honestly don't know how people think its ok to just walk up to a complete stranger and touch them like that.

I don't like anyone touching my belly, except maybe DH, my kids, my mom and sister. No one else may touch. I hate how as soon as a woman is pregnant people forget that it's NOT okay to touch people.

I won't let people I don't know touch me. And even then friends and family better ask LOL. I have a large bubble when I am with my kids or pregnant. I have never had any strangers try but I have heard about it plenty. Thanks for sharing everyone.

Yeah I don't let people touch me My kids or DH and that's pretty much it! Otherwise nobody has any business feeling me up. I might LET another family member if the baby was kicking up a storm, but we don't live near family right now anyways.

I'm happy for any of my close friends and family to have a rub, but strangers would definitely creep me out!
