Iwould hate if a stranger did it, but it never happened. Mildly annoying when a friend did it,

I guess I have touching issues.

my mother came a few weeks ago and kept trying to touch my belly baby wasnt moving much, she never asked and honestly it totally skeeved me out. I kept having to get up and move away.

I dont mind when dh or dd touch me but anyone else needs to keep their paws off my body or at the VERY least ask first. and thats for people I know - total strangers? well, I rarely let them get close enough to touch my body but yeah, they better watch out if they randomly try to rub any part of me!

I chose 'other.' I never had anyone rub my belly with this last pregnancy. I don't remember it ever happening with the first two either.

I love it! People do it to 'connect' with the unborn child because they are excited. It's awesome to have people loving my baby even before he's born!

Don't mind at all with friends/family, though I think it is polite to ask. Have not had a stranger try, but that would be weird. I do give off a pretty strong stay-out-of-my-personal-space vibe and I am tall which is intimidating to a lot of people on its own, so that may be why.

I can't stand strangers who think it's ok to invade your body space . That said, I don't mind at all of friends or family do it. I know, I'm weird.
