Lil Community: Hands Off My Belly!

A whole lot can happen once a woman's pregnant. This post was submitted by member cheekyredhead in our Why Didn't Anybody Tell Me? group.

A pregnant belly must be a weirdo magnet. Strangers who otherwise would have ignored you completely suddenly feel compelled to grab your belly. Why is it okay to be groped by people you don't even know? When pregnant, my husband and I went into Nordstrom and suddenly a man appeared out of nowhere, fell to his knees and put his head on my belly. Astonished and in shock I stood there afraid to move. My husband asked me if I knew the guy and I shook my head NO.

"Get off my wife!" my husband demanded. The guy seemed to finally realize how inappropriate he was and immediately got up and took off. I felt like I needed to go home and shower. Why is it that people, strangers, seem to think that it is okay to grope a pregnant woman's belly? It happens in elevators, grocery stores, and public places everywhere. People at church even seemed to think it was perfectly okay to take liberties with my belly. Seriously....I don't get it. I can't be the only woman this has happened to.
