A Do or a Don't: Touching Pregnant Women's Bellies

My best friend is newly pregnant and obviously we're all thrilled for her and anxiously awaiting meeting the bun in the oven, but like many pregnant women, she isn't feeling quite up to par. One of her biggest complaints is when people take it upon themselves to rub her belly, uninvited! While it is nice to have your friends and family members be excited for you, it can't feel great to have people ohhing and ahhing over you especially when you aren't feeling your best.


Touching pregnant women's bellies has always been somewhat of a taboo subject, but it seems like people just can't help themselves! While I don't know what it feels like to be with child, what I want to know is, is it a do or a don't to rub pregnant people's bellies?
