    I def had this problem with my 4th preg :-( luckily my ds2 (3rd preg) was only 6months old, so ppl just assumed it was still from him. I don't have any advice on how to hide it though, sorry.

    For my dd (2nd preg) we ended up telling our family at around 7-8 weeks as my brother was getting married right at the 12 week mark. I knew I would be well and truly showing by then and didn't want to steel their thunder by announcing too close to the wedding. Plus, it was a very very small wedding and apart from showing, they would have noticed when I didn't have every a glass of wine 😜.

    Sorry but if you mean 3 weeks from LMP it's just some fluctuating bloating and definitely not showing.

    Congratulations on the new pregnancy!

    I always got extremely bloated very early in the piece,tummy looked huge. It should settled down and then before you know it it will be your baby bump growing along beautifully! Congratulations too!
