Touched By A Stranger

I knew this day was coming.

It was inevitable, really.

It all happened so fast that when it was over I wasn't even sure it had really happened.

A stranger. touched. my. belly.

Worst of all it was a customer at work, so there was no opportunity for me to scream "EXCUSE ME YOU CRAZY TOUCHY-FEELY PSYCHO!"

I had to grin and bear it while I tried to convince her that yes ma'am, you do need this $80 sweatshirt.

For some reason in my head I had always pictured being felt up in that way by a cute little grandma that smelled like gingerbread.

For some reason that seems okay.

This lady had bad teeth and she didn't even smell good.

I feel like a part of my baby's soul has been stolen.



How far along? 30 Weeks
Total weight gain/loss: +8 lbs, doubled in 2 weeks, Halloween was good to me and I have no regrets.
Maternity clothes? I feel like a child screaming at everyone to stop singing Happy Birthday to them when people tell me my maternity clothes are cute, because I hate them all.
Stretch marks? No, knock on wood.
Sleep: Getting harder as I grow bigger.
Best moment this week: Finding out baby is head down, now just stay that way Baby C!       
Miss Anything? I am the Queen of the hot toddy, so this is going to be a rough winter.
Movement: So much, she pretty much stretches out from end to end now.
Food cravings: I have been super into chocolate this week.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope.
Gender: Girl. 
Labor Signs: No.
Symptoms: I think the heartburn is starting, but that could have been the bag of M&Ms before bed.
Belly Button in or out? In, but it's starting to hurt which makes me think something dangerous is about to happen.
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Super moody, cried all day at work on Monday, only 60% was work related, the rest was just uncontrollable pregnancy crying which continued into the evening and bedtime.
Looking forward to: Finishing the nursery which is STILL waiting on dressers to be painted.
