I've actually done number 4!  I was dating a girl at the time, so I wasn't lying, but the other person was talking about worrying about getting pregnant and I said I didn't have to worry.  She asked me why, so I did exactly as you said in number 4!

 I can't decide if  ;D or  8) is more appropriate!

My mother has told me at times I look like I am pregnant but I am just fat.  But I've not played scrabble and unless I am the Virgin Mary, I am know I am not pregnant nor ever have been at any time.

My mother did get  a few people jokingly telling her she was getting married quickly because she was pregnant.  She was making wedding plans and told someone she had to get off the phone quickly to be sick.  She said she had the flu at the time, and it would have been one very long pregnancy because I was born about 1 1/2 years after she & my dad were married!

My DH can do the same thing. He wisely only comments about it to me in private. Even I find it a bit creepy that he's so attuned to the subtle shifts that happen to women's bodies. OTOH, I know that my pregnancies traumatized him, so it's likely self-preservation.  :)
