So we were at my mom's tonight. There were a lot of people there because my step-dad got the pay-per-view boxing match.

There was a lady there that I've never met. My mom was showing her where the bathroom was, and as she walked by me she put her hand on my belly and started to rub while she asked, "can I touch your belly?" Well she was already rubbing it, so what could I say.

Next she asked me when I was due, when I told her "December" she was so surprised and asked if I was sure I wasn't having twins....I let that slide too, ( even though I was boiling inside) I told her I was sure I wasn't having twins. As she walked away she told me I was going to have a fat baby.... That was it. I yelled after her "Thank you for calling me fat!!!" To which she responded, " No not you! Your baby!"

When she was coming back from the bathroom, she tried to stop to apologize and explain herself. But I stopped her and told her, " Thank you, but please don't talk to me anymore" she tried to walk away, but my mom still tried to make peace, " Mija, she didn't mean it she just meant..." I stopped her, " Mom! Please! I don't want to hear it!" So they both walked away.

Poor lady never used the restroom again for the rest of the night. She probably didn't want to walk past me.

I feel kinda bad, but really?? Enough is enough! I'm sick of people's stupid comments about my body and my pregnancy! Being pregnant doesn't make me and my body community property!

I worked as a waitress/hostess when I was pregnant with my son. I got SO many annoying comments, questions, and people trying to touch my belly. And I never got a chance to give someone the what for! (My managers would not have been happy with me lol). But OH I wish I could have.

I stay at home now, so I've got nothing holding me back. Thank goodness no one's tried it this time around, lol. My 14mo is always the center of attention wherever we go anyway, instead of my big belly. I like it

I've never forget being pregnant with DS1 and I'm sitting on a bench in walmart waiting for the bathroom to be cleaned and this lady sits beside me and starts talking to be and PETS my stomach. I was jaw dropped and completely slient just looking at her shocked and she just kept doing it.

That was unbelievably rude. For some reason, when people see a pregnant woman they subconsciously turn off any filter they might have had. I don't understand at all.

I've thought about it, and after sleeping on it, I don't regret my being rude back. I have a right to speak up!

Also, I bet she never does that to another preggo lady again! :-)

She was sooo rude! How dare she say you are going to have a fat baby!

I've decided that if anyone touches my stomach I am going to grab their muffin top or pinch their ***. Seems Fair, right?

Yuck! Some people have no sense! I've gotten my fair share of rude comments this pregnancy. For whatever reason, it does seem when people see a pregnant woman they feel the need to turn off the filter.

Ugh, yeah, I hate how people feel like they get to make comments about your body simply because you're pregnant. People would NEVER CONSIDER telling a non-pregnant person how big they are.


For some reason strangers don't try to touch my belly. I must have this "touch me and you die" vibe or something.
