Re: How long can you hide a belly? *pics anyone*?

I think it depends on the length of your torso too. I'm short but have a long torso so my baby belly hides until 30+ weeks. People who I hadn't told I was pregnant didn't even notice until I was 36 weeks with my 1st. I WISH I would show sooner. My hips expand faster than my belly so that might also be a factor...that and so far my babies have been peensy

Depends on the belly.

I'm 32 weeks pregnant & lots of people would just assume I'm heavy.



This was actually taken at like 4 months pregnant, but not much has changed.

I think this was week 32... I'm not 34 with number 2. I have the double T advantage, tall and torso so baby has a lot of space to 'hide'

Even now it really depends on what I wear

Re: How long can you hide a belly? *pics anyone*?

I got a job in my 15th week with my 3rd baby(ie, popped a whole lot sooner!) and they didn't know. I didn't announce it officially until 20 weeks and they knew I had kids at home and just thought I had never lost the weight from the THEN 2 year old. And I'm a pretty slim person and 5feet 5inches. So if you wear the right clothing, you can hide it.

Yeah, I'm only 5'0" so there would have been no way I could hide it until 20 weeks, lol. On #3 now, and just hoping I can get away with it for another two weeks (will be 6 weeks then) and will start telling people then.

Here I am at 14, 16, 18, and 20 weeks with DS (can't find any from DD).

By 20 weeks I was obviously pregnant with both of my boys. There was no hiding it after 16 -17 weeks or so with my first. With my second it was obvious almost immediately even though I gained very little weight.

Not me! I have always showed early and by 12 weeks at the very latest anyone could tell that I'm pregnant.

I do wear more form fitting clothes though.

Yes! People are just now starting to notice I am pregnant, and it is mostly when I wear skirts or dresses. I am 21 weeks today. If I wear pants/shorts, people can't even tell!

Not long! With my first, it was obvious at about 18 weeks and that was with winter clothes. My second was obvious by 14 or so weeks. The third.... 9 WEEKS!! (and I'm not a small girl) I looked like I had a beach ball stuck under my shirt by the time I delivered him! I don't change anywhere else except for having a ginormous belly! I'm just happy that I don't have to go through that stage where maternity is too big and regular clothes are just too snug. I'll just get out my stretchy pants when we concieve the next one.
