Do you hate it when people touch your pregnant belly?

I never liked this! Both times I was pregnant I hated this. Not sure why people think its appropriate to have theis hands on you, especially rubbing and groping, and saying"Ooh it feels so hard!" And having theis hands so close to your breasts and the baby's exit site. The only person that I didn't mind touching was my husband and child.

  • Ehh, not really. However, I did hate when strangers would try to touch my son when he was first born!

  • i hated it. Traditionally it was good luck to touch a pregnant woman's belly. i told people if they touched the belly, i'd break their hand. LOL i was a very grumpy pregnant lady!

  • I totally hated it and nobody ever even asked. People would just reach out to touch the baby too. Didn't fly with me. I am very cranky about personal space.

  • I don't really mind people touching my belly all that much. Now when I was little, and before I got the bump (I'm currently 37 weeks) I didn't really like it, but didn't really say anything. I didn't hate it, it's just it wasn't that believable to me yet. Now people walk up and are almost afraid to touch it in chances of me going into labor and I just laugh hysterically! lol
