Second Trimester

Q&A: How To Hide My Pregnancy?

I'm not quite ready to break the news yet, but I'm starting to show. Any tips for hiding my belly a couple more weeks?

Not that we're into deceit and trickery or anything, but... of course!

[  ] Start complaining. "I'm so fat" ... "There's just no time to work out anymore "... You get the idea.

[  ] Try to curb the cravings. While pickles with peanut butter may sound sumptuous to you, a. it'll raise some eyebrows, and b. it's really kind of gross. No offense.

[  ] Put a lime in whatever you order (try clear beverages or watered down cranberry juice) and it'll look just like a cocktail.

[  ] Hold off on the maternity clothes just a little longer... or at least find some cute ones.

[  ] Keep the "doctor's appointments" to a minimum. Try the old plumber/electrician/cable guy/whatever excuse instead.
