This is Marcus, I feel that touching the pupies are good, I normally try to touch or carry the puppy to massage it with my palms. I feel that by doing it, you wil let the puppy get use to handling, touching and grooming from young. As long as you wash your hands before touching the pups, it should be fine.
Try to start clipping the puppies nails when they are 1 week old, use the human nail clipper and just clip the tip, they will get use to clipping nails when they older. It will then be very easy to clipnit in the future.
A fat tummy is a good sign, is the mother licking the puppies to help them eliminate waste? If yes it should be all right, If not you will then have to do it yourself.
Hope this helps,
