Pregnancy does not open the door to my privates. Back off.

Some folks may disagree with me but I don't think that a person should ask a pregnant person if they were planning to have the child that is currently gestating in their womb.
Honestly, have we gotten to a point in society where we need to know everything?
I'm not as pissed as I was yesterday about this whole mess.
I wanted to respond, that is none of your business (written for polite eyes).
Why do people feel the need to ask the most invasive questions of a woman after they announce their pregnancy or any other big news?
I just find it all too invasive.
I already have strangers poking around down there. Would you like to come along for the internal exam with me next week?
Now, I'm not one who gets too upset when strangers touch my belly. I figure, it's freaking huge and it's protruding so. So DH thinks it odd that I'm so offended by the question.
I think the offense is that it's the first damn question some folks ask. What the hell?
I'm trying to put a positive spin. Maybe they were blown away and it came from left field. Maybe they just want to be included in some shape or form.
To me, I'll try to be open but let me have some privacy with my husband or would you have liked to be present for insemination?
