  • Make a point when people are talking to you or come up to you to put your own hand over your belly. This detours most people. If all else fails as the PP said. Tell them you would rather they didn't touch. I HATED that to!

  • Rub them back! Not kidding, it will stop them for sure. Just think about how many pregnant women you will save from those same belly grabbers!

  • SMACK THEIR HANDS AWAY! OR if a woman does it, grab her tits. If a man does it, punch him in the nuts. It's an unacceptable invasion of personal space, ESPECIALLY from strangers.

  • If somebody did that to me they would lose an arm I am so serious about that, it is rude to touch somebody you don't know especially without permission.

  • The last time a random stranger attempted to touch my pregnant belly I slapped their hand. You wouldn't touch a stranger's flat stomach, you have no right to invade my personal space and my body just because I'm pregnant.

  • AHA I agree! I rub them back, like someone else said. They give you a weird look and walk away. Someone told me it's because there's a "miracle" and they'd like to share. Seriously... it's a miracle when a woman survives breast cancer, would you go grab her boob to share in the miracle? Didn't think so.
