Ok, I usually do not mind people touching my belly.
Well...I was at Wal-Mart looking at baby stuff and this guy walks up and asks me how far along I am. I tell him, and he says "Wow, you doing good"..then puts his hand on my stomach. Continues to say.."You don't look that far".."Are you sure yout pregnant" (lol)Then tells me "Wow, I don't think you'll get much bigger" (wtf?) All this time he is touching, rubbing, SQUEEZING my stomach..he started getting lower..& then lifted my shirt up while saying "What does your belly button look like?" I was pissed. It took everything I had not to knock him the F out!!! I could tell he was kinda slow. But this was scary. He did this atLEAST 5minutes. He wouldn't stop!! Even when I continued to walk away and TRY to end the conversation. I know alot of you will say why did I let him? Well..I never said he could!! I would consider this assault. What would you have done??

Yes it is assault. The perpetrator could probably get indecent assault for that. In the future, if you don't like that happening to you, don't let it! I keep a circle of personal space around myself and my daughter. If someone steps into my circle, I back up or otherwise gesture it's not okay. It's not fair you have to walk around on guard like that, but it's a fact of life that unfortunately cannot be changed. If you are still feeling raw about it, do something proactive. Maybe make a donation to a domestic abuse or women's group, I am certain there isn't much you can do about your specific incident at this point (but if you think it will help you feel better, you can try!).
