  • I got it once and my reaction startled me. I instantly slapped the old lady's hand. I did not even have time to think before my hand was slapping hers.

    Ugh, it is so rude though!

  • id be very upset if someone lifted my shirt! no one has done that to me, and no one has really touched my belly either. i have gotten allot of comments "that i look like Im going to pop" or questions of when I am due which have grown to be slightly annoying

  • Wow I really would have had to slap someone if they lifted my shirt up. Nobody did that to me. I rarely had anyone I didn't know touch me either. Once though on the 4th of July we were coming back from watching the fireworks downtown (I was 36 weeks!) and we got on the trolley which was PACKED and we were litetally all squished up next to each other and the girl I was next to kept looking at my belly and was finally like "I'm sorry lady, it's too cute I can't resist" and she rubbed it lol. I thought it was pretty funny though so I didn't mind! Made everyone on the damn trolley turn and look at me though haha.

  • hahaha. I agree! I had a few come up and do that and since it is winter, it gets cold!
    I dont mind it but what can I say? I'm "Belly Shy", I dont want the world seeing my baby bump. lol
    It's for me and my family. Yuup. Definetly rude.
