What's the easiest way to find out when you got pregnant?

I don't know what it is about being pregnant that makes people so free with their advice, words of wisdom and various platitudes. 

So far I've lucked out and haven't had any strangers touching my belly. Though there has definitely been a lot of unsolicited advice. Most of it is well intentioned so it doesn't bother me. 

What gets to me more is the various pregnancy jokes like "Well, you're eating for two now!" But the one I'm really tired (no pun intended) of is the joke about storing up my sleep now because I won't be getting any in a few months.

As if it were even possible. And if it were, I'm not exacting getting really great sleep now. I'm up 3-4 times a night to pee, rolling over is a monumental effort but because I have trouble getting comfortable I need to roll over, I'm getting leg cramps. And all of it is only going to get worse as I get bigger. So even if I could store it up, I wouldn't really want to save the sleep I'm currently having.

Answer - Have sex once a year
