Re: How long could you hide your pregnancy?

I could have hid it until probably 25 or 26 weeks with DS1, but I couldn't have hid it that long with DS2. Maybe 16 weeks.

Re: How long could you hide your pregnancy?

I could probably have hid it until about 16 wks.

But I was so bloated and uncomfortable, and I had to change my wardrobe, people who saw me regularly knew something was up pretty quickly.

I was happy to tell so I didn't have to worry about looking fat and people would know I was pg and not just eating too many ho-hos in my spare time.

Physically I can still hide it at 16.5 weeks with number two. I thought for sure I'd pop by now, but I really haven't. I bet you can hide it for awhile if it goes like your last pregnancy.

Re: How long could you hide your pregnancy?

I was able to hide it until 24-25 weeks but its my first. If you wear looser, blousy tops it helps. This is my first though so I know you can usually hide it longer.

Re: How long could you hide your pregnancy?

Without making drastic wardrobe changes I could hide it for 17-18 weeks. After that I probably could have until 24-25 weeks but would have to be way more creative with what I was wearing. It's been pretty much the same with all 4 of my pregnancies. I am 11.5 weeks right now with #4 and don't look even remotely pregnant.

that is how I was with #3. I was just starting to get back in shape after hurting my back over the summer and I had gotten flabbier and still had about 20lbs to loose.

Re: How long could you hide your pregnancy?

I have not been able to hide my pregnancies (even my first) past 8-10 weeks. At that point, no matter what I wear, even strangers will ask if I'm pregnant.

With my third I popped out pretty soon, 12 wks maybe. With this pregnancy, my fourth, I could of hid it until 16-18 wks. and I was 20 lbs overweight prepregnancy. I would suggest layers and loose clothing. Congrats and good luck on your little blessing

Re: How long could you hide your pregnancy?

idk guess it depends on your body. wearing baggy sweat shirts might help. this was me at what was probably around 13 weeks

Re: How long could you hide your pregnancy?

If I wanted to, I could still hide this baby (#2) at 21 weeks.. but I'd have to wear sweatshirts. I could have easily hidden it until 18ish weeks wearing normal clothes.

I am pretty small, but my bumps are small because of my long torso.
