What is it about being pregnant that
puts a target on your belly?
Like a magnet for family, friends, and even complete strangers hands!
Never at any other time do others feel the need to just touch
a personal part of your body without even asking.
What is it?
I honestly have no clue, but its at about this time in pregnancy when people begin to wish they had a porcupine belly. (At least I know I did)
I mean, really, who would randomly touch a porcupine? YIKES!
What an awesome way to remind people that you are still a person and don't need unwarranted touch... sharp QUILLS!
Its okay if you are loving all the attention and the touches, but for a lot of women it is really intrusive and can be very uncomfortable.
It is completely OKAY to say "Please don't touch" or any rendition of that.
And to make it clear, to even family, they need to ASK before touching you.
Just because you're pregnant doesn't mean you have to give up your personal space and body!
So, until we work out the kinks of how to create a porcupine belly cover, speak up!
It is OKAY to not want others to touch you
and it is your body to say something about.
