I used to LOVE people touching my tummy. It would just give me a reason to gush about baby (: It’s such an amazing feeling to be pregnant, I really didn’t have a problem with it. Sometimes I would be surprised if they did it randomly, but overall I loved it.

I don’t think I will mind. I would be really honoured if people find my pregnancy so special that they want to touch my belly and feel the baby kick.

@LuvMySailor:  I’m glad you enjoy it. Some people really do like the touch of others. And you are not weird for liking it. Different people have different feelings about people touching them, and to some people it’s no more invasive than a hug, to some people even less so.

I’m just under 8weeks so don’t have a bump, though I do have a food baby since I’ve been eating so much lately. But I doubt I’ll like people touching me when I get a bump. I’m black have natural hair, afro, so I unfortunately know what it is like to have people feel “compelled” to touch a part of me. If any of you out there reading this “can’t help” but to touch someone’s afro because it’s “so cool”, please stop, lol. We’re not for petting. And I feel the same way for pregnant bodies, they are not public property for people to touch as they please because they “couldn’t help themselves”. If you’re an adult, yes you can control yourself, and if you’re a child, it’s time for a parent to teach you not to touch strangers without permission. Friends and family I mind less, strangers are a definite no.
