The other thread got me thinking. How big of a problem is belly touching? Does there really need to be a law against it?

I'm featured baby!

No one ever touched my belly unless I asked them if they wanted to feel the kicks and they said yes.

I tried to touch my sister's belly once. She just came back from the doctor and found out she was having a girl (My daughter) She slapped my hand and I never tried or asked again. She was a very mean pregnant,lol.

I must put out a sufficient "stay back" vibe. It's never been a problem for me. I am someone who wants to touch other preggo tummies, tho....of people I know. I go in slow, so they have time to protest before I get there. Lol!

I had a few strangers and a creepy coworker try. I am a crazy magnet.

It was usually people I knew...it never occured to me to be traumatized, I probably would have given a WTF look and walked away.

No strangers have ever touched it. A mom I babysit for, the baby's grandparents, my sister, DH, and one of my DH's coworker's wives all do though.
