belly gropers?

so of course i had to ask, now that our bellies are growing apparent, anyone had the uncomfortable belly gropers lately?

me, i have which usually i can tolerate....the weirdos who feel the need to prompt me with a shoulder or back rub at work truly has creeped me out. when has it been appropriate for people to automatically assume being pregnant welcomes them to give you a shoulder or back rub? lol. yesterday i had 2 different employees approach me with a shoulder and back rub. the one i didn't mind cuz i can tolerate the one employee but the other employee out of nowhere came in my office rubbed my stomach then went on to try to rub my back and shoulders. eeww, i flipped then appologized. lol. just curious if anyones had to deal with this and if so how do you all deal with it. lol!:eek:

The mother of one of the kids I tutor rubs on my belly every time she sees me (which is not that often- once a month at most). I don't mind, because she's kind about it, and doesn't linger. I don't know why, but mostly the belly groping never bothered me, but then, I never had any COMPLETE stranger do it, or someone who made me uncomfortable. I had quite a few friends who would just leave their hands on my belly when we were together when I was pg with DD... and I would poke at DD from the other side to get her to move. Smile

But, I can get that it bothers women- especially when it's people for whom it is seriously just inappropriate. ick.

Same here. My friends and family are welcome to my belly anytime. Most are polite enough to ask. I've still never had anyone completely random touching my belly or anyone that I felt awkward about. Thank goodness!

Yeah, I would not like that!!! I'm sure I can think of a few people that I would rather not have touch my belly!

i am the same way and mind you when this happened. the girl who did it knows i hate her so she still tried this? i turned around and was like i appreciate the concern but i am in the middle of something really important and when i am in the office that is my time....i felt bad but i am not going to allow that one again. so so odd!
