    Default How to hide bloat/bump until 12weeks

    I just found out I'm pregnant. . 4 weeks. Through ivf so I'm super bloated and look maybe 5 months preg.

    How did you ladies keep your bump under wraps until 12 weeks? It's more for work than family.. But I already look different I'm wearing baggy jumpers but you can still tell!!

    Congratulations ☺

    Winter is good for hiding a bump. Mix colours/prints and wear layers. Scarves are also good for deflecting attention.

    Congrats
    Loose tops, scarfs, maybe wear your hair different as people may focus on that rather than your tummy! My babies were ivf too and I was terribly bloated...I couldnt hide it beyond 8 weeks, lol

    Keep loudly talking about the new diet you're going on because you've gained so much weight lately?
    Congrats

    Peppermint tea is great for bloating and will help when morning sickness / nausea kicks in.

    Thanks for all the ideas ladies!! I will definitely try them all. Layers is a good idea I will just have to keep the aircon cool in the room! I will try say I have gained so much weight lately too.. If I notice anyone noticing my belly!

    I wore quite a few dresses without waist lines- they make everyone look pregnant, so I didn't look any different from anyone else!
