Do you touch baby bellys? If so,...why?

I love touching baby bellys (I always ask first, and only my friends/family)
But after I think about it...why do we like touching them, if we do????
I'm not sure why I do to be honest,....maybe to see what it feels like?

  • I do with people I know and I ask first. My sisters though, didn't ask...had free reign on touching their bellies! For me, I wanted people to but only my sisters, mom and aunts did. When you're chubby, people don't ask to touch your belly!!

  • I am not a touchy-feely kind of person. I do not touch others baby-bellies and never allowed others to touch mine.

  • I don't like to be touched or touch others. Crazy I know. However I do touch my own pregnant belly. Only when I am ask to do I ever touch another pregnant belly, those bellies have been my sisters.

  • No, I don't do it to others but when I was pregnant I didn't mind if people touched mine.

  • Only family and friends and of course always ask first. I think it is neat to feel the babies move.

  • People who haven't been pregnant tend to touch other peoples bellies more than people who have already been pregnant. I think they do it without thinking. Not to offend. I remember when I hadn't had any children and I touched someones pregnant belly the person would either not mind, or get upset. I would think to myself" why are they so uptight?! Is it really that big of a deal?" Then I became pregnant with my first I went out for a friends Birthday party and everrryone even people I didn't know were coming up to me to touch my belly and I hated it! I don't know why but it ticked me off. Maybe it was those pregnancy hormones! haha I don't know.

  • No I don't. Unless of course the mom to be offered. My bff insisted I must feel the baby kick so I did. That was probably the only time.

  • I don't generally speaking, it seems like an invasion of someone's personal space. The only times I have are with two of my closest friends.

  • That, and because we know what precious gift is in there! I never minded people touching my tummy IF I KNEW THEM, and they asked first! But u would be amazed at how many strangers touch ur belly...not cool!

  • No, I've never understood the need to rub another woman's belly... When the baby gets here, I'll hold the baby. Touching the belly does nothing for me!
