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

I had people ask me at 8 or 10 weeks with my pregnancies if I was pregnant. There is NO where for me to hid a baby (super short, non existent torso). I felt bad going out at the end of my pregnancies because I know I looked ready to pop by 30 weeks and made everyone around me really nervous as I assured them I wasn't even close to due! ha ha!

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

Love this thread! it's so fun to see all the different size bellies!

This is from my pregnancy with dd. I could have hid it until probably 5-6 months, if I wore baggier clothes. the first person to ask if I was pregnant, I was about 5 months. and I thought that was pretty bold.

6 months - dh was 8 months


9 months right before going to the hospital



And, this pregnancy. I definitely popped earlier, maybe a month earlier.

14 weeks


25 weeks

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

I didnt tell my mom until I was 18 weeks (and I was seeing her every day!), and didnt tell my boss until I was 24 weeks (and she had no clue!)

At 32 weeks I attended a meeting with CPS (for a relative) in the morning and when I mentioned being pregnant the lady was visibly shocked, but by that night (after eating ) I went to the grocery store and an old lady asked if I was pregnant.

So, long story short, I could have completely hid my pregnancy until 32 weeks

I am 5'4 and was a size 14 when I got pregnant, but I dont think my chubbiness played a part in it. I just carried wide from side to side vs. out front.

Like others, with my first no one could tell I was pregnant till after 20 weeks, I did have a little belly, but you couldn't tell it was baby. I could've just been chubby.... I showed sooner with each one after.

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

I am a tall (5'10") with a really long torso one too. My belly never really stuck out a ton, just got wide lol. Wish I would have had the cute round belly! I also had hyperemesis and lost about 40lbs over my whole pregnancy, probably lost about 20lbs between these to pictures, you can see I lost my double chin lol.
Here's me at about 12 weeks

And just to compare, at 8 months

I never needed maternity pants, in the 8 month pic those are my regular AE jeans, so I feel like I carried pretty high, but very spread out
