When did people decide it's okay to caress another person's abdomen? If I weren't pregnant, the older ladies (and some men) at church would never touch me, but they think that just because a small person is growing inside of me that it's okay? It's not.
I don't even want people touching my stomach when I actually have a baby belly, but I can at least see where that might be more tempting to people.
One of my church family members took it upon himself to rub my stomach while I was getting my choir books last Wednesday and I was so shocked I didn't have a chance to respond. Granted, there isn't much I could say since I am not allowed to be blunt or rude at church (or Mema Dean will give me the lecture of a lifetime).
But let me tell you this: first stranger that touches my stomach will be dealt with accordingly.
Any suggestions on politely asking people to not invade my personal space?
