Re: How long could you hide your pregnancy?

With both I could easily hide it until 6 months. But I am long waisted.

This is my first pregnancy & we weren't planning on announcing till we were out if the first trimester. However, I started getting asked & the "look" around 10 weeks & by the time I was 12 weeks my bump was noticeable to anyone who knew me. I'm 22 weeks now and I've almost gained my goal weight already I've come to the conclusion that I just simply blow up when pregnant. Lol. Hope you are able to hide it for awhile still & make it to your goal!

With my first it was like 6 months before people started asking if I was pregnant. With my second it was like 3 months and people noticed.

I was able to hide all three really easily until 25 weeks, I really don't use maternity clothes all that much. Thankfully that means more $$$ for diapers! =)

Re: How long could you hide your pregnancy?

With my first, people couldn't tell until at least 22 weeks. With my second, I looked about the same as you do in your pic when I was 16 weeks. With this one (my third), I popped about 14 weeks.

Re: How long could you hide your pregnancy?

I honestly think it depends on the sex of the baby and how you "feel". I couldn't hide my 3rd (boy) past 12w. By 18w, I looked 7 months pg. However I was all baby and he was 8lbs14 ounces when I gave birth to him a month early.

My 4th, I was extremely ill and by 20w, I lost 20pds so I was able to hide her from work until 24w. (waited due to issues on the u/s).

With my 5th, another boy, I was showing by 14w.
With my 6th (8th pg), another girl, I was able to hide it to 16w

This one 7th (10th pg) broke the "sex" thing. I really thought she was a boy since I couldn't hide it past 11w. I ended up having to tell work LONG before I wanted to however I couldn't hide it any long. No m/s and she grew quickly. I had lost 40pds before I got pg with her though so not sure if that also made my belly pop quicker.

With my first 2 the nurses thought i was lying when i showed up 40 weeks pregnant in labor. I had no bump at all and only weighed 110 pounds! I am 5'9"!

With the next 4 I could have hidden it for at least 32 weeks.

With my last (number 7) I was huge. Could have hidden it for 16-18 weeks though.

WHAT?! That is my starting point minus 6 inches! lol At 40 weeks I look every bit of it! I am praying I can hide it for a while. I am already getting morning sickness, so if it gets as bad as my first I will have to tell much sooner.
