  • I made a couple of shirts that had a bullseye on it that said "touch here" on the top and "and you will lose your hand" on the bottom.

    I didn't understand it either. I had one woman do it and when I touched her non-pregnant belly, she got offended. I was like WTH? You can touch me and it should be fine but if I touch you, I'm violating your personal space?

  • Yeah, I don't get that at all!! Why do those people think it is OK? I love to ask moms when they are expecting and wish them good luck, but invade their private space? I don't think so!!

  • People do some off the wall crap! Noone that wasn't famly has ever touched my belly when I was prego, that I can remember....but if they did I would have smacked there hand lol...I have a friend who is prego, and I love baby bellys, I always ask if I can touch.

    @ angel-wooow almost similar to me, except the delivery guy that delivered our pizza asked my 2 year old for a kiss!!!!

  • People get excited over pregnant bellies and sometimes forget about personal space.

  • Knicole- I would have reported him!! That is just weird. I never had a problem with people touching my belly as far as family and friends, but random people heck no! I would catch them before they did it. I do remember a walmart employee trying to take my daughter out of her carseat at 2 weeks old...I lost it! Had a nice long talk with the manager.
