  • Grab their boob or other personal parts, when they complain tell them it's only fair, they'll back off! That's what I've been telling people when they ask if they can touch my belly! So far no one has been stupid enough to go ahead and touch the belly.

  • I hate when people do that! It drives me completly insaneee!
    People at school are like "Aww, I want to feel your belly" I usually tell them to feel a wall with skin on it..
    Or when they reach to touch it put my hands in front of my belly and turn to my side.
    I know how you feel, it sucks.

  • It bothers me a little too. I'm 25 weeks and whenever someone touches my stomach I get like a weird twitched or something in my side. Sometimes even when my fiance touches it I get a little freaked out for a second. I'm so protective of my belly and I'm scared someone is gonna touch it too hard or bump into it so I don't really like it when ppl just come up and touch it. It freaks me out for a second that they're gonna hurt me.
