  • Constantly! I reached a point where I would pat theirs back. It got the point across real quick!

  • EVeryone touched my belly, but I didn't mind. Generally I ask first, because not everyone is comfortable with that.

  • One time an old lady went to touch my belly and I growled then barked at her. She jumped back.

  • I loved (and now miss) my big baby belly and had no qualms letting someone have a rub. I think women like to rub baby bellies and remember that wonderful feeling of carrying a child. I let 'em rub away! :D

  • I hated it! I felt it was rude & intrusive. You don't rub fat people's bellies, why do you want to touch mine?
