My mom and mother in law both do it and currently it really bugs me because it's NOT a baby bump yet!!! >_< I won't mind as much when it is (for them & DH only).. but right now it's just my fat. I keep reminding them of that every time in hopes it discourages them for now, but they can't take a hint. The point (for them) is that baby is in there somewhere, and they're saying "hi" or whatever. sigh.
And then my lovely mom.. who must not have truly noticed how large my belly has gotten over the years.. The last time she touched my belly and I rolled my eyes and told her it's STILL just my fat, she said, "Are you SURE??".. >_< Thanks mom. Yes, I'm sure I'm that fat around the middle. I live with it daily, I've been watching like a hawk and measuring myself often.. I'll know practically the SECOND I start to get a bump!
LOL Uh... yes. One of the reasons I'd rather throw my own baby shower is because MIL would invite some of her more hoity toity crew, and the shirt I'd plan on wearing wouldn't be... terribly proper. Sure, she can still invite them. But If *I* am the host, I can wear what I want.
"If you touch my belly, I'll totally twist your titty"
Since I do injections, my belly HURTS! When someone does it without asking, I go off. If a stranger asks, I lift my shirt up and show them the bruises and say, "Absolutely not" My family knows to ask first. When we saw our family doctor a few weeks ago, she asked, and she was so amazed by it. She would just reach her hand out and rub it randomly while talking to me about my daughter's treatment. I don't mind people I know doing it with permission, only because they know to be gentle.
I don't really have a noticable bump yet, so I'm not getting it from strangers. However, I keep catching myself rubbing or holding my belly. DH is really starting to pay more attention to the "bump" as well.
