"I am pregnant and am trying very hard to stay healthy in my mind about all the weight gain, etc., but its hard when everyone seems to think it's their business to ask about what I'm eating, how much I'm gaining, etc. I know they don't mean anything bad with their questions, but I'm still kind of vulnerable when it comes to eating and weight stuff, and their comments can be really triggering. Is there a way for me to maintain my privacy (and my sanity) without hurting their feelings?"
