It’s amazing how perfect strangers will have absolutely no qualms about probing into your personal life when you’re pregnant. But while it’s extremely tempting to fire back an equally intimate question (like “How much weight have you gained since high school?” or “What’s your favorite sex position?”), we recommend taking the high road. Smile, explain that you’re just excited to be carrying twins, and change the conversation. After all, most people aren’t trying to be nasty or intrusive—but at this point in your pregnancy, even the slightest irritant can feel like a
major annoyance.
