You don't touch me any other time, so don't start now!

I don't see why women feel incline to touch someone's belly during pregnancy.

When I was pregnant, random people would walk up to me and try to rub my belly. Um... hell no! Then they are wondering why I'm swatting their hands away. You have never touched me before, why on earth would you think it i acceptable now? 

I had this one woman tell me my child is going to be selfish if I don't let her rub my belly.

Are you a belly rubber?

I feel the same way about touching a child's hair-- usually little black kiddos with great braids or twists.  In NO context is it appropriate to walk up to a person and pet them, so why do it to a child just because they have adorable hair?  Boundaries, people.  Compliment with words.  ASK questions if you are genuinely interested.  Do not touch random people.

I am not a belly rubber.... and I feel the urge to bite the hands that try to touch my belly. Unless you're my husband; keep your hands off the belly. But I like personal space; I don't understand women that go around asking people to touch their belly either lol.

Thankfully I never had anyone do that to me.. and no I'm not one to touch someone elses belly. I'd expect to get a dirty look it not smacked away.

The only people who ever touched my stomach when I was pregnant were DFs family and mine. Never random ppl. I didnt mind.

I will only if they ask me too. My soon to be sil is heavily pregnant and I never brought it up but she asked if I would like to feel her belly one day while the baby was wiggling inside so I did
