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

By 20 weeks I was hardly showing at all! You couldn't even REALLY tell until about 28 weeks. In fact, someone didn't even know I was pregnant until I mentioned it..it was 2 weeks before I gave birth!! Granted..I was wearing a baggy shirt..but still..I felt huge.

Wow! I guess I could have hid my first at 20 weeks, but I wore my regular shirts because I buy long shirts anyhow. I happen to have carried both ds and dd right in front- nothing on my sides. I had to wear tight stretchy shirts or things would tent. I actually looked smaller with my second the whole time, except for her being so incredibly forward. It has to do with body type and how that baby hangs out :0)

I have twins and didn't show at all until 25 weeks! I lost 4 lbs from week 12 to week 20 just because the girls were taking so much out of me. I never threw up either. Of course, that meant I gained all 40 lbs from 25-35 weeks.... Not so pretty stretch marks to prove it!

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

I didn't hide mine. I thought my belly was adorable. And I showed very soon. BTW, I'm 5'1 and was about 120 lbs prepregnancy. At the end of my pregnancy, I was 200 lbs. I delivered at exactly 41 weeks. IT WASN'T PRETTY! LOL

Needless to say, I'm TERRIFIED of becoming pregnant again and becoming a fat, ugly blimp!

8 weeks



I could have hid it up to maybe 14 weeks


16 wks


18 wks


36 weeks


40 weeks

I'm 5'1 with a super short torso so I show fast. People could tell by 9 wks this time. I'm 20 wks & look at least 30wks. I don't do pix. No need to remember the whale I become while pregnant.

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

I didn't have a discernable baby bump until I was almost 6 months along. Because of my work uniform (black baggy chef coak) I had co-workers (those not in my department) who didn't know I was pregnant until I showed up during my maternity leave with the baby.

Call me crazy but I LOVE my bumps! I love to accentuate them and show them off.



That was me two weeks ago. I'm even more round now. I need to take an updated pic.
