Re: How long could you hide your pregnancy?

I'm 13w4 days and you can't tell I'm pregnant at all. This is my second and my first is only 1 year old so I thought I'd pop sooner but I guess not. I do get bad morning sickness and loose weight in the beginning. But I'm tall and didn't get very big with my daughter.

To be fair, I was 17 and 18 with my first 2 pregnancies. I only gained 7 pounds with my first. With my second I was 120 when I delivered. I gained 10 pounds.

First child, I could have hidden it for about 25 wks. I went to my 20 wk ultrasound with my first in regular blue jeans. I was tiny, the rest maybe 12 wks.

Usually not much past 10/12 weeks
I agree with others about winter wardrobe though. During the first trimester (summer) people always told me how fast I was showing (t shirts and tanks). Now that it's winter (coats and layers) I get comments about either how small I am or how they couldn't even tell I was pregnant

Re: How long could you hide your pregnancy?

With my first I told my coworkers around 21 weeks and most said "oh, yeah, I thought something was up" but I am pretty sure I could have told them that I was making bad diet choices and they would have believed that too. Some coworkers (mainly guys) were clueless. I was able to tell them both about my pregnancy and the sex of the baby.

With DS2, I think I started to show around 17-18 weeks. I am sick for the first 20 weeks and don't gain in that period though.

Re: How long could you hide your pregnancy?

I could have easily hid DS until I was 30+ weeks. I only had one stranger comment on my pregnancy the entire time I was pregnant with him. I went all the way up to 42 weeks and I still barely looked pregnant. A hoodie could conceal him the entire time. He weighed 8lbs 8oz at birth. This was me at 33 weeks with him:



This was me in labor with him at 42 weeks & 2 days:



I could have hid DD up through 18ish weeks. I got absolutely huge with her. Way bigger than I did with my DS! Nevertheless, I lost weight with both pregnancies.

ETA:

Here is me at 37 weeks with DD. There was no hiding her! She was born three weeks later, on her due date. She weighed 8lbs 12oz at birth.

I'm wondering about this too. I just found out I'm pregnant (about 4 weeks). This is my second pregnancy. With DS, I popped around 11-12 weeks. By week 14, I truly looked pregnant. I'm very petite and we later found out that I had a large fibroid which has since been removed. I always measured really large. I am hoping that I won't get nearly as big this time and that I can make it until 14-15 weeks minimum.

Re: How long could you hide your pregnancy?

Cold weather will help a lot! I'm just over 14w with #3 and VERY visibly pregnant if I wear clothes like you. (I think my belly is bigger than yours in that picture :P ) But it's cold here so I can get away with big sweaters and blouses and people might wonder but nobody would say something. FWIW I lost 15lbs due to hyperemesis so I actually am smaller on my butt and thighs but the belly is still huge.
