  • If anyone had done that when I was pregnant I would have kicked him/her very hard. That is soo uncool

  • I had a few, but sent a very clear message that it will not happen to me, people seemed to get the hit.

  • Not strangers but relatives wanted to. I was so uncomfortable even though they were family. I firmly believe in three feet of personal space. With my first baby I was too timid to say no, I'd rather you not. With my second, it was another story. One of DH's relatives asked to (which I thought that was odd since I'd already hinted to them that was not an option) and I just said that it wasn't personal but I was not comfortable with that and all touchy feely ended. Thank God.

  • not one person has tried that in public. probably because i'm always so angry looking lol.

  • I have had this happen to me a lot. I always just start rubbing their belly, too. I figure if they are rude enough to rub my belly, I should be able to do it back. Works every time!

  • I have yet to have this happen to me, thank god! I know I will freak out on someone who does it. And it would be just my luck that it would happen at work (i'm a server) so there would go my tip... Tho I have thought of making a pin to wear on my apron that says "touch the belly and expect to lose a limb" or something like that lol
