Um…that is completely weird and wrong.  Ick factor, no one should ever touch another person without their consent.  If someone touched my belly, I’d smack their hand.

Uncalled for! I would have probably said something snide while smacking her hand away from my stomach.

I am actually pregnant and I still hate when people touch my belly…I always say that I’m not a freaking troll doll!

Seriously, though, why do people have to invade personal space like that? 

I feel ya on the rude co-workers, too.  Some people who work where I do (but aren’t actually co-workers) have asked me all loud, one was literally screaming it, if I’m pregnant (which I am).  The first one did it in front of one of my students, the other in front of my student and their parent.  We haven’t said anything to my kids at work since it’s still somewhat early, so that made me SOOOO uncomfortable, and now I’m being asked all these questions I’m not yet prepared to answer.  The people I actually do work with know, so my director was kind enough to go politely tell them both that they need to shut their mouths.  Some people seriously need to mind their business!

Don’t you want to grab her stomach and have a comment for her?  I mean really do people think before they speak or act?

How is that any different from grabbing someone’s boob and saying, “So we never got that boob job, did we?”

People are screwy.

@JennyW1:  Lol but very true.  Or like somebody grabbing your butt and saying, “hmm…looks like you haven’t firmed up that area yet”

Wow – I have a weird “hit first” reflex when people touch me uninvited.  I’ve knocked over friends for surprising me by grabbing me unawares – it was just a reflex to get them away from me, and then I was horrified they were on the ground.  If that had happened to me, I’d prolly be helping them up off the floor, saying that you really shoudn’t touch people, unless it’s close, close family, without asking and making your intentions known.  I’ve accidentailly busted lips before without thinking in situations like that and now have trained myself to freeze the minute I’m aware someone is going to invade my space, just to avoid getting in trouble for assault.
