What do you say to crude questions?

Just anticipating the crude questions that will come towards me for having a 5th child. Was this planned? Don't you know where they come from? How did you get pregnant when you are always co-sleeping? etc. Anyone with lots of babies know that you are going to get rude questions and what do you say? We have a family reunion this year and that is prime place for those. We got them with #3 and #4 as well. I feel like asking something equally none of my business back but I'm looking for a dignified approach. Anyone?
And along these same lines. How do you show others that baby #4 or more should be equally celebrated. With #4 I didn't even get a congratulations just the crude comments and my sister who is pregnant with #2 is doted on. I'm not jealous of her-- just sad. We always throw our own baby shower for our own kids and family and let the siblings paint my belly, decorate with streamers, eat cake and then I have pictures for the baby album. I know this sounds petty(and this is my first day of posting. Yikes) but in my baby#4's album the place for gifts was empty because we didn't even get many cards.
Excited to join all of you,
