They have begun!  People are slowly and steadily eyeing my belly and reaching out to touch it as if it were some sort of pet. 
i mean don't get me wrong I think it's sweet or whatever but please ask. Don't just assume that I'm public property lol.

does this bother anyone else?

No one ever did that to me really. I mean they would mention my belly and ask the gender, but they never just touched it without asking me first.

Very much. I don't even like people so them touching me is out of the question. I've lucked out so far and nobody has tried touching me yet.

I naturally suffer from chronic rbf, so no ever assumed it was okay to rub my belly. The only few who ever did were really close friends and knew that it wouldnt bother me.

I'm the same way. I'm not a hugger or a touchy person so even though I get that they think it's sweet...it's weird.

No one ever did that to me. Everyone is so sweet when they realize i'm pregnant when i'm out shopping or whatever. I'm 33 weeks and people are telling me it's barely noticeable that i'm pregnant which makes me feel great about myself since i've gained 35lbs already

But I have a slight resting b***h face which helps.

I am not sure how to handle it especially because these are people that I work with and get along with very well. But I also want my space respected.  I guess I'll just have to find a nice way to say no

That's really nice! I'm really short so my belly grows outward very quickly. I'm 16 weeks and it's pretty out there already lol
