Only newly pregnant (first time) and we're already struggling to keep the pregnancy hidden!
Because I stopped drinking coffee (I used to be a coffee addict) and alcohol just before we started trying to conceive (a month and a half ago) I can tell my friends are already on to me.
The problem is that none of my friends have had babies, so they are all very social and like to go out for dinners and afternoon drinks. I have been avoiding every event that has been organised, because I know they will realise. I can tell they are testing me too... Inviting me around for afternoon cheese, crackers and wine. I don't know how much longer I can keep it a secret. They will either think I don't want to spend time with them or will be speculating about my pregnancy.
I don't usually drink with family, so this isn't too tricky to hide. The only issue is Mum noticing I'm not drinking coffee.
Has anyone else had similar problems early in their pregnancy?
What did you do? How did you deal with it?
I'm thinking I'll have to tell a friend or two, well before the 12 month 'safe date', so I have some allies to help me keep the news concealed? Thoughts?
I'd love to hear stories and advice from others...
