    I hate my belly touched without permission. Actually I hate it full stop.

    I usually take a slow step backwards. If it's a close family member I just grin and bear it and think ill thiughts about them.

    See if u can buy a shirt that says " please don't touch my belly" .

    Good luck

    Get a T-shirt that says 'Dont touch it is mine!'or Rub it and die!...I have no clue. I had the same issue with my first 2 and other than when people actualy noticed my discomfort I was poked and prodded and felt rather helpless. Now with my 3rd, I actualy lost my bubble everyone is permanantly in it rubbing me more than ever before...and I am fine with it. Maybe because we have had a few scares this pregnancy and everyone is praying for me, I am just greatful they care.

    I just awkwardly laugh and say something like "oh geez making me feel like a Buda or something" not too harsh but makes people realize you feel awkward..

    Except my dads girlfriend I swear she pokes me again I may break her finger to get the point across lol

    I'm soooo not looking forward to this if it happens. I don't mind friends and family touching me at all. But if a random came up to me in the street or the supermarket and did it, I'd have to refrain from elbowing them in the head as hard as possible.

    Put your hands over your belly so there isn't really room for theirs.

    When pregnant with DS I would rub their belly if they rubbed mine. I'd just smile and say "Oh ok so we're doing this now?" and usually they'd laugh it off and not try again. :P

    I dread this! I don't know why just because someone is pregnant it gives others to avoid normal social etiquette? I wouldn't just go up to a complete stranger (or someone I barely know) and give them a hug, so why would u think it's ok to touch me??
