Did it annoy you that when you were pregnant complete strangers would come up & just touch your belly?

IDK about y'all but this bugged the crap out of me. Some people are ok with it but not me. I don't know where your hands have been lol. For those who disliked it what did you do? I remember i would back up quickly when i noticed they were about to try.

  • I got very fast at side stepping the incoming hand.

  • I NEVER had a stranger touch my belly... but I would have smacked the SHIT outta their hand if they had tried!!
    That is actually concidered a "Battey" (Battery is a criminal offense involving unlawful physical contact, distinct from assault in that the contact is not necessarily violent) so I would hope no one would even go there!!

  • The only people I allowed to touch me was my DH, doc, and my midwife. If someone including family started to reach out , I just asked them "How would you like me to pat your belly and baby talk to it?" Worked like a charm!!

  • Yes! I want my personal space, especially when I was pregnant!

  • Touching was a little awkward but the fact that they wanted to touch a stranger was even more awkward!

  • I'm actually really touchy about strangers touching me, it genuinely makes me so uncomfortable I want to cry. I'm so strange I know, you've just got to be agile!
