How to Keep Pregnancy a Secret When Out for Drinks?

How can I get around tipping off my friends that I’m pregnant when we go out for drinks?

There's no bigger pregnancy giveaway than the lush who suddenly turns into Little Miss Teetotaler. So let them pour your wine and then fake sips throughout the meal (your partner can also surreptitiously drink from your glass.) Or head to the bar alone and order a mocktail. We’re partial to sparkling grape juice and fruit puree or sparkling water mixed with pomegranate or cranberry juice and a squeeze of lime. If you're a beer drinker, try this trick: Order a dark bottle, take it with you to the ladies' room, empty it out, and fill it with water. Not ideal, but it works!
