So one thing I was so stressed about in the first few months I was pregnant was random strangers coming up and touching my belly when it was finally big enough to intrigue everyone. This has not happened even once. It's pretty big, it looks squishy, how did I get lucky? I have frequent long car trips and finally came up with two theories:
1.) I have always been told over and over how I don't look my age, I'm 23. I started wondered if people didn't come up to me because they were secretly judging me and wondering if I was on a season of 16 and pregnant.
2.) I definitely "suffer" from having resting bitch face. I'm not angry or upset, it's just my face. Random people think you're unpleasant and unfriendly. Those who have this as well know what I mean. I started to wonder if this was a deterrent for bump crazy strangers who don't know what personal space is.
Either way, I have to say I am relieved. I have only had to deal with the invasion from my Mother and MIL, still makes me uncomfortable but I survive. Hopefully #2 is the deterrent and it will work after LO is here and strangers want to "attack" her with love. Here's to hoping (:
