Next time a stranger comes up and rubs your belly, after they're done - rub THEIR belly - bet they'll never do it again!

it usually doesn't really bother me too muh, but i must have been in a horrible mood a few weeks ago. some lady in the grocery store just walked up and as her hands were already on me said hello and that was it, just kept rubbing away. o i started rubbing her belly and when she backed off and looked mad i said i was sorry, i thought it was a new game we were playing, and just gave her a sarcastic smile. :) doubt she'll do that to a stranger w/o asking again:)

oh man it drives me crazy! Im all about my personal space as it is and I dont know what it is about a prego belly that makes people think they can just come up and touch you. You woulndt go rub a non prego womans belly cuz that would probably be looked at as harassment, so whys the belly bump make it ok?

Also I dont like how people voice their opinion about how big they think u are for how far along you are. I had a stranger ask at the dentist how far i was ( i was 4 months at the time) and she was like " wow your really showing!!" Like I dont feel huge enough already. lol. I cant wait till I have the baby and still have that baby weight and people ask me when Im due...oh man....
