Smile Re: Rubbing Your Belly

So many times I have caught myself doing it to other people that I don't let it bother me. I know that when I have done it I mean it in such a caring way that I hope that is what other people are feeling as well. Of course, I really don't do that to strangers so I often wonder what their motivation is but I think it must just be a habit or something. It happens so frequently that there certainly must be something that says she's pregnant we must rub the belly.

Re: Rubbing Your Belly

I am suprised i haven't had strange people come up to me and rub my belly. Just like the girls i work with and my family. None of them bother me with it.I know them well enough. I think i would be werided out if people i didn't know wanted to touch my belly.

Re: Rubbing Your Belly

I'm a chronic belly-rubber. I just love to feel that! Not in a sick way, or anything like that of course! I just think it's so awesome to rub it and think about what's underneath! Especially when you can feel body parts, or when he/she is moving around. But, I only do it to people I know, like the girls I work with, other girl friends, and family members. I never just walk up to a stranger and do it. I know that I'll be perfectly fine having people rub mine once I start showing! In fact, I'll welcome it. I do think it would freak me out a little if a total, complete stranger walked up to me and did it... but I wouldn't smack them away or anything! lol Unless they were really creepy or something.

I have a friend who is due in October, and she's pretty weird (I don't mean that in a mean way) about people touching her belly; even close family and friends. She'll let me do it sometimes, but others she acts kind of bothered. So I know that not everyone shares my view on it.

Re: Rubbing Your Belly

I hated it when strangers would touch me!! Yes stramgers on the street wold come up and rub my belly. Like gross! I do not know where their hands have been! It did not bother me though to let family and friends touch my belly. Do whatever you ae comfortable with.
