I have quickly come to realize that the number one thing not to say or do to a pregnant woman is to touch her belly without permission! This is the most annoying thing. Now I know, a cute little baby belly is so tempting to touch and rub. But back off, especially when there isn’t a baby belly to rub. I am not a freakin’ genie lamp. I will not give you three wishes if you rub my belly. Nor am I Buddha (eventhough, I will freakishly resemble him in months to come.). If you have the urge to rub a pregnant belly, please be thoughtful and ask!
