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

Oh goodness, this gives me hope...I'm almost 5'10 with a reasonably long torso. I get stretch marks easily, so I hope that I'm one of the no-showers

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

I barely showed with my first. I am 6". I popped in the last month. I got on a plane at 37 weeks pregnant and no one batted an eyelid. He was tucked away and hard to find on U/S.
With my girls I was showing at 12 weeks and carried them much more forward and much much lower.
I was 32 weeks here with him. I am wearing a non maternity top.

I find it fascinting how different people carry when pregnant at different stages! All adorable too.

I'm a tall torso gal too, so can always hide until around 20 weeks. Usually it's a few weeks after that where I might get a few glances. Noboby ever believes I'm as far along. I just went for a US last week and the lady checking me in took a double take and said, but you don't even look pregnant? And your fourth? (3 kids were with me).

I have a friend who looks about 3 months as soon as she poas! I swear her body just loves being preggo.

I can hide the bump, but people take one look at my face and ask me if I'm pregnant.

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

Back in like, 2001 my cousin hid her pregnancy for 7 months! She was 17, VERY slim and average height. She said she only had a tiny tummy and just wore loose clothing.

I'm on baby #6 and had SEVERE bloating from 9 weeks onward. Now, at 24 weeks, I am HUGE. I'm well under 5 feet tall and thin. No torso. Baby is already under my ribs...

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

i got called out at work by a customer when i was 12 weeks with #3...I did not think i really looked pregnant...the assistant store manager was right there and she was like "you're not pregnant are you? I hate when people comment on things they dont' know!" then she laughed and i admitted, but begged her not to tell the store manager b/c i was waiting till my 1st appointment before announcing (or, um that open full time position that i'm being interviewed for lol!- got it by the way)

I am 5'9, started out at 145lbs

I look more pregnant then some of the non showers and I am not pregnant.

That said I couldn't really hide it past probably 16-17 weeks with DD. I had a basketball though with her. She was straight out front. I do have a short torso to though.

I definitely couldn't. I'm short with a short torso, and my spine has always curved in toward my belly so there's nowhere for a baby to hide.
I had to tell my family I was pregnant with DS at 8 or 9 weeks because strangers could tell already. I was in maternity jeans by about 15 weeks.
