Inappropriate touching of the belly

Yesterday, we shared our good news with our best friend and his girlfriend, who I've become fairly close with. As we were hugging goodbye, she bent down and KISSED my belly 3 times. Loved her excitement, but it was very odd, and I really hope it doesn't become a regular occurance. Have you experienced any inappropriate belly touching?

Re: Inappropriate touching of the belly

  • ALL THE TIME!!!! from the same two women at work who just wont get the hint! On Friday at lunch, in front of one of them, I was telling everyone about how I'm really sensitive about my tummy area as I'm a bigger girl, and people touching me make me uncomfortable because ATM they are just touching fat. Not sure if she got that message, watch this space. The other lady touched me today, and I said to her, look that's just fat at the moment, and she said, no there is a baby in there!!!

    Next time I am just going to tell them that I'm uncomfortable with it, and ask that she not do it. If she gets offended I don't care because this constant touching is offending me! its my body and I don't have to put up with it!

  • Haven't experienced it yet. Don't know how I'll react, but definitely won't put up with strangers doing it. I can't believe she KISSED your belly!! That's... so awkward. My gosh.

    My BILs bff was rubbing my belly at my nephews party yesterday while he was drunk. He totally wreaked of alcohol and i think hes a major perv and makes me very uncomfortable. He then said "is this ok...doesnt matter we're family." Ummmm NO were not, this isnt ok and his wife is five months pregnant go rub her belly you drunk weirdo!!! Thank god my FIL interupted he's my hero; he probably saw the look of horror and disgust on my face.

  • A friend of a dear friend kind of tickled my belly twice at a party at our house, everyone was tipsy but me.  I let it go, I'll never see her again. If someone at work does it, I'm touching them back.

  • The way I've always combatted this id to immediately reach out and touch the belly of the person touching mine. They freak out and back off quick.

  • The one and only time I touched a pregnant woman's belly I asked AND she was a friend. I will get a shirt made that says no touching if I have to.

    Wow, I can't believe his pregnant wife didn't stop him! I'm sorry you had to deal with that. I'm glad our close friends and family don't drink, I think I would have no patience for that and would feel like they were acting childish like drunk college roommates these days with how annoyed I get!
  • I don't think I've ever seen him sober that's the sad part...

  • @MrsSmith0312 I still can't get over that she kissed your belly... 3 times! DH is the only one allowed that close to belly!

  • Clients have been trying to touch my belly....it freaks me out, I don't like them touching me when I am not pregnant! BOUNDRIES people! My new favorite line is "Nooooo touching!" as I move away quickly!
  • DHs friend tried once...and I mean only once. I grabbed their stomach and asked if this was some new form of greeting.

  • Maybe this is the hormonal bitchiness in me, BUT it annoys me that my DH kisses my belly. I'd be fine with it if it only happened at night. (Kiss me goodnight, kiss baby goodnight) But he does it ALL the freaking time.... And it doesn't seem to bother him that others are around. Yesterday my parents were over visiting. When he got home, he came right in and kissed my belly. So awkward!

  • It's happened to me a couple of times. I absolutely hate it and pull away. I'm not 8 months and ready to pop, all I have right now is a belly full of air and poo.  

    I need a line to use that isn't offensive but gets the point across. My personal space boundaries are important to me.

  • I just met a new neighbor last week and when she found out I was pregnant she immediately went for my belly.  Um...what??  I covered my stomach and backed away.  I seriously don't get why people want to touch pregnant gals' bellies!?

  • If you are an Arrested Development fan, go look up the "No Touching" compilation on YouTube. Look it up even if you've never seen the show. I'd link it, but I'm on my mobile.

    I'm a victim advocate and run sexual assault prevention training at my work where I've shown that video multiple times before. So, if anyone attempts to pet my belly, they'll get a quick "No touching!"

  • My preschoolers want to touch my belly all the time. Even they usually ask first and they're three! Of course I say yes.

  • OMG, yes!  This girl did the same thing to be.  I don't mind the occasional belly pat from a close friend or family member... but do not bend down and kiss my belly!  That is just weird.

    I think the next time a random person goes to touch the belly, I am going to reach out and touch theirs back.

     Our baby boy,Logan, was born still at 19w3d on 7/1/2011
    Our 2nd baby boy, Mason, was born still at 20w3d on 1/31/2012

  • My FIL asked to touch my belly, I said yes. BUT he lifted my shirt and kissed my bare belly. I know he's really excited (1st grandchild) but it was really weird!

    I am a HUGE AD fan!
    I had two people (strangers) touch my belly last pregnancy but they were so excited about babies I just didn't care. If people at work or something tried it would give me the creeps.

    @-) I would have been mortified. Weird is by far an understatement!

  • Here's that Arrested Development link for all you fans:


    I've had just one friend touch my belly so far, as well as a student. Hasn't gotten too awkward yet, but we'll see what happens...

  • I have a very excited middle school student who touched my bump. So inappropriate!! I try to avoid her in the halls and when I can't I take her hand and give her a high five explaining that's it inappropriate to touch teachers.
