Do you like it when someone touches your pregnant belly?

I'm talking about strangers, friends, and family.

There's a friend of mine who is pregnant, and she bites the head off of anyone who tries to touch her stomach, even her close friends! Thankfully I didn't try. LOL

I never wanted strangers to touch, but I didn't mind if friends/family did. But then, only a couple tried. I was kind of disappointed that most didn't, but looking back on it, they probably didn't know how I'd react! LOL

  • Nope. Not even friends or family. That's my belly, not yours! Plus, I was kinda, well, let's just say not too enthused about being pregnant so I never talked about it .

  • Nope, hands off...they had no interest in touching it when I wasn't preggo so there's no need for them to do so just because I was preggo.

  • anyone who i wouldn't really want touching me if i wasn't pregnant, i don't really want touching me pregnant either. now i don't mind if my mom, grandma, etc, and close friends give me hugs, put their arm on my shoulders, etc so why would i mind them touching my pregnant belly? but that's just me :) it's just their way of showing intimacy and love

  • It really made me mad when I was in the store or something and someone random person would try to touch it. Now certain friends and family were okay and it didn't really bother me. My mom had this friend that would always try to touch it and say 'how's my baby doing' blah blah blah, I went off, and let's just say she never touched my stomach again lol. I had to get my point across that it was MY baby, not hers.

  • I am not into it. I am not a very huggy, touchy feely kind of person. I don't mind if DH or the kids do, I tolerate when my mom does. Everyone else can keep their hands off my belly.

  • I don't mind if friends and family touch my belly while I'm pregnant. But if a stranger tried to touch my belly I would give them the meanest look and tell them to take there damn hands off of me. If you don't know me, don't touch me. Simple as that.

  • Am I the only person who kind of liked it when people touched my belly? It made me feel special, like even though I didn't know this person, they were happy for me and cared about me for a little while.
