Cameron asked if she could touch Nicole’s baby bump and Nic agreed. She was just glowing, and proud that people were showing interest in her baby.

I HATED strangers touching my belly. I would have random people….I mean it’s nice that people care, but I remember being at the supermarket, reaching into the fridge to get some sour cream and turning back around to slam into a hand that was reaching out for my belly when I wasn’t even paying attention!

I had no problems with friends or family touching it, just strangers.

I had so many people touching my belly with my first child. At the time, I was working as a manager in a service industry position, and encountered hundreds of people each day. I was touched almost every day, by people I had never met before. As long as they asked me first, I had no problem with it. I was so in love with being pregnant and being a mom, that I wanted to share it with everyone.

That being said, I would never ask a stranger to touch their belly. The only belly other than my own I have ever touched was my sisters, and I only touched hers twice, after she asked if I wanted to. I respect people’s space and their bodies. I don’t expect others to be held to my own expectations and standards.

Dana…Well said. I totally agree.

I hated people touching my belly while pregnant, i only agree if it was my mom, my husband of course🙂 and maybe close friends….but that’s all. I remember my mother in law not only touched my belly, but kissed it every time she came to visit me! oh gosh, it was so uncomfortable…but i never told her anything because i knew she kissed me with love, because i was carrying her son’s child…but anyway, it was very weird for me. I remember when my daughter was born, we where at the hospital and she came and kissed my belly…again! but then I told her “the baby is not inside my belly anymore….now is just me” i think she understood the message….

It never bothered me for people to touch my belly, as long as they were gentle.

And in the scheme of things, this is important, because?

People need to ask first, plain and simple and respectful. I would never dream of approaching some random stranger…..pregnant, or not(horrors!), and invade their personal space and rub their stomachs. It’s rude and inappropriate. Just b/c one is pregnant, does not automatically, make you public property. Why do some people not get this? I was touched once by a stranger, and it freaked me out. “And just who are you?” I asked….”Oh, sorry….” was the reply.
(weird)

Dunn, I hear a good comeback is to reach out and pat their belly back. I wish I had stood up to people more about belly-touching when I was pg. It would have been good practice for standing up to people who touch your baby w/o asking, which IMO is even worse.
