i went to the grocery store today and while i was waiting for my cold cuts (don't judge me... the doctor oked me on them) some random lady came up to me without warning and GRABBED my belly. she shooked it around and said "is it moving?" i think my face said it all when she immediately backed off and appologized. i just don't get it... who said that it was ok for strangers to do this? does every one think that pregnant bellies are public territory?.. because they are not!
don't get me wrong, i love it when people touch the belly... BUT people i know! i love the attention i get (i know i sound selfish) but its the only time in my life that my body and my belly will be praised. fat girls (i am one :)..) do not get praised for the chubby bellies. people do not look at a chubby belly and smile, but when youre pregnant people just smile at you all the time (or they look at you with pity.. i have gotten a few of these looks). i would just prefer the no touching. you can smile at me all you want and talk to me and ask me questions... just please, if i don't know you, don't touch the belly. ok. thank you!
