Dont you JUST HATE belly touchers?

i was on the city bus with my son and we were getting off and this guy reached over and touched my belly and said have nice day.. i went off on him .. i told him try that again and ill chop your hand off! It doesnt happen often but when it does i get so pissed.. just becuase there is a baby in ther does not mean you have any right to invade mys space!

  • It's been 11 years since my last baby, but I do remember how I HATED anyone touching me!! You are absolutely correct, NO ONE has the right to invade your space, without your permission!

  • It would make me sick. Literally. I can't stand some stranger touching me period. To touch my belly makes me cramp up. I would have done the same but I probaly would have slapped his hand or arm. People see pregnant women and automatically (some people, not all) think that they can touch. It's ridiculous.

  • ive never had a stranger try to touch my belly and ive been preg. 3 times and am now pregnant with my 4th. I am only 9weeks so i don't have a big belly yet, but if a stranger does try to touch my belly when it is bigger, i would not be very happy.

  • I agree-I don't like it at all, I slap everyone away. Unless I offer the belly, it's off limits, period. No one gets special treatment so family, friends, and even dad gets beaten off with a stick :)

  • oh, no - that's not something i like. family & friends are fine, 'cause i know they're just excited about the baby & it makes me happy knowing she has so many people that love her already. strangers, nuh uh, i might bite someone for that.
