  • Don't touch me! I just don't like to be touched anyway, but when I am pregnant... keep your damn hands off!

    I seriously needed this on a t-shirt.

  • I really wish they wouldn't honestly I don't know why they suddenly think its ok! They don't do it when you're not pregnant. I think some people view a pregnant woman as a baby holder only, you know? They look right past the person and see all baby!

  • I don't care if my friends do it but it is when strangers do it that bothers me. I think that if I wasn't pregnant, these people probably wouldn't even say hi but since I am they feel it is ok to actually come up and touch me?

  • Thankfully people knew I wasn't a touchy feeling kind of person and touching my belly without invitation wasn't OK, and I guess the strangers of my town were kind enough to leave me alone. My friends due date was yesterday, still no little guy, but one of our acquaintances went to dinner with us and sat with her hand on my prego friends belly all night! she kept asking her to stop and she wouldn't! That's weird

  • i am also superstious..,my grandmother use to tell us that ppl can pass things on to your baby by touching your stomach..if someone hated you an touched your belly they can curse your baby...i believed i just plain dont like people touching my belly or my newborn child

  • I expected to have more random ppl I didn't know try to touch my belly. They apparently were able to read the "Fuck Off I'll Break Your Arm" look on my face & left me be. I also listened to my mp3 player to discourage the ?'s all pregnant women get asked a billion times a day. I had more issues w/ strangers wanting to touch her after she was born. I finally made a "Don't Touch" sign for her stroller.
