    Default How to hide pregnancy

    So I've done 3 tests this weekend and they have all come back positive.

    I have decided that I'll follow most of the recommended exclusions for listeria such as pre-prepared salads etc as I did the same thing last time and coped ok. My biggest problem is that it is very well known at work how much I love sushi. I may have had weeks where I eat it everyday������

    It it is going to look really suspicious if I suddenly stop eating it but it isn't a risk that I'm prepared to take. Does anyone have any suggestions for an excuse other than going on a health kick?

    Tell people you're eating low carb, high fat (lchf) and don't eat rice anymore?

    Apparently sushi is fine if it is fresh and the contents are cooked like cooked tuna/prawn or vegetarian. I have been eating it and I'm 12 weeks- it's actually a craving!!

    Say you got food poisoning from it when you ate it last and you've just gone off it for a while.

    You're bored of it because you've over eaten it?

    That is what I would do.

    Why hide your pregnancy? I'd be honest instead!

    Maybe she's only in the first weeks and doesn't want anyone to know yet?
