I guess it was only a matter of time before it happened.
Yesterday as I was drying the dishes after lunch in our work kitchen, one of my colleagues lunged in and went for a feel of my baby bump. With my two hands full I had no way of stopping her and I was so shocked anyway that I didn’t have time to think of anything to do or say.
I had been warned that once you’re pregnant your body becomes public property. It goes with the inappropriate questions and unwanted advice.
But I still can’t believe that people think it is acceptable to poke and prod expecting mums as if they are a lump of meat – what would they do or say if I went for a stroke of their jelly belly ?
If this becomes a regular occurrence I might have to get one of these, or even more explicit one of those!
