I should know the answer to this sense I have already had onr baby but i dont...My question is, I'm REALLY starting to get a belly now and my husband and myself are gamers who love to play video games for "our time" together...So Will the rumble/vibration of the controller hurt my baby in any way??? Tummy is so big that i cant help that the controller sits on it. Btw Im 20 weeks preg and very small except to my tummy, which is all baby and no fat.
No it won't hurt your baby at all. LIke clysta i played alot of video games with DH when pregnant. A friend of mine was worried of something similar, if a vibrator could hurt the baby, which would definitely be closer to the baby in some ways then a controller on top of your belly, she actually asked her ob(i dont know if i ever could without dying of embarrassment lol) and the doc said no, sex toys in general were alright within reason (nothing to crazy lol) and the vibration wasnt going to hurt the baby in any way.
at the end of my pregnancy they were doing NST's on me because the first one they did they couldnt get DD to wake up(she hated them, they never did really get one that resulted in the way they wanted), and they use this little buzzer thing that does a vibration to try and wake the baby up to get them moving for the test. So theres no way they would use that if the vibration in anyway hurt the baby.
I agree with the other two....I played a lot of games using controllers that had a rumble feature and both of my kids were just fine. I DO think they can feel it, but since experts say it's safe to use a vibrator during pregnancy as long as you don't jam it up in there (pardon the explicit description, LOL), I think that a little rumble on your belly would be just fine. Also, if you can ride in a car and the baby has no negative effects, the little vibration they'll get from a rumble feature would be nothing in comparison :-).
