 So my Dh and I don't want anyone to know we are P until after our big 1st trimester screening that is scheduled for september 23rd, I will be 12 weeks that week. The problem? I am showing already!! Like not a discrete little aw she put on a little weight, nope, a nondesputable prego belly that has been impossible to conceal no matter how baggy my clothes are. I haven't gained any weight or noticeably looked bigger anywhere else, just my belly. Did anyone else show super early? How did you hide it until you were ready to tell everyone?

You can't be showing that much at 12 weeks unless you're carrying multiples. Even with this 3rd pregnancy with twins I could hide it at 12 weeks. Throw on a flowy dress.

I'm not saying I look seven months pregnant right now but its significant enough that yeah even in a flowy dress to anyone that knows me I look pregnant. I've tries loose flowy tops but when I turn sideways the little belly still shows and its low so it doesn't look like weight gain

Happy someone understands lol. I have no issue with it once we tell people but I'm high risk so I'd like to keep it on the dL until we are ready

I have the same problem the last couple times. But I wasn't trying to hide it. Good luck. My pants start not fitting at about 5 weeks. It's downright ridiculous.

Not true. Everyone's body is different. Especially if this is not her first baby. My cousin is due 2 weeks before me...but this is her second baby and she looks like she due 2 months before me. She started showing around 10 weeks. I am JUST starting to show at 14 weeks and this is my first.

This is my second pregnancy and my dh could tell at like 9 weeks, it was a round little bump not like bloated bump. I know what you are going through, and we wanted to wait till 12 weeks to tell everyone, but people started asking when I was 9-10 weeks.. So I said screw it and just told people..
Now I'm 21 weeks and I'm small compared to some people who are right there with me.

You either have to go into hiding for the next couple weeks or just let people wonder..
Good luck
