Know what else I’ve been lucky about? No one – I mean NO ONE – outside of immediate family (they’re allowed) has tried to touch me during this pregnancy. I haven’t had to fend off ANY unwanted belly-rubbing. I’d been led to believe this was a problem I’d have to fight constantly. Maybe I’m giving off a stay-away-from-me-I-bite vibe. Or maybe Rhode Islanders understand personal space. Whatever the reason, I am NOT complaining.
Constantly? That’s a little too strong. But yes, it was a problem for Amber. Creepy. Never when I was around, either…
Ugh. Why do people DO that? Smile from afar! That’s enough.
Soon the same people will be trying to touch your baby. And you will want to punch them in the throat. 🙂
