Susanne.. But I have to say something. I had my own struggles getting pg. And when I was pg both times.. I consciously and unconsciously rubbed touched and rested my hand on my belly. I do not feel bad for doing it in public nor would I have ever considered not doing it. If you have struggled to get pg and you finally achieve that wonderful state of being.. you tend to want to touch your belly to communicate with baby and simply to reassure yourself that it is real or even to get baby's foot from stretching that one spot to it's limit. You don't do it to rub it in the face of someone who can't get pg. So I graciously I will not agree that it is inconsiderate.

And I would also like to add.. once you lovely ladies get pg which I know you will..
you will also rubb your bellies and not think twice about who is watching.

After my m/c last summer, I find it so hard not to touch. I feel just the way Bethann said above. I try to do it only when I'm alone, but I'm sure I do it in public too.
