Awwwwwkward

Look, ultrasound tech. I get that you are trying to be friendly and pleasant. You didn't give off a creepy vibe, just a sort of nervous, excessively cheerful one. I also get that a lot of very pregnant women find the whole "joking about how much the baby/amniotic fluid/placenta weighs" thing to be cute and funny, so I totally gave that a pass and even gave you a pity laugh.

But do me a solid, stranger I have never met before. When you are wiping the ultrasound goo off of my stomach, please do not comment on how you get to rub girls' tummies all day, and how all the guys are jealous. Flirty banter from a waiter I can handle, flirty banter from a guy who is touching my exposed body while I lie on a table? Creepy under the best of circumstances.
