When you finally start to show in your pregnancy it can be a little unnerving when strangers come up to you and start touching your pregnant belly. It is as if your baby bump has become public property, and people think a genie is going to pop out of your tummy if they rub it.
Who knows why people think that it is OK to touch someone they don’t know? If you walked up to someone and started touching their breasts you would be arrested!

Next time someone reaches over to touch your baby bump, use one of our clever comebacks and let them know that it is not OK.
