    Hi,

    its difficult isnt it. I dont drink all that regularly,but will have a glass of champagne or wine if I go out for dinner, and my friends were on to me when I was 4 weeks pregnant because they noticed I didnt have a drink when we went out for dinner one night!

    Could you fake an appointment over lunch and go out of the office, that way skip the lunch all together rather than saying you are on anti's or have an upset tummy, IMO that would make them more suspicious.

    Good Luck. Let us know how you go.

    this!
    I hid my pregnancy until 20weeks, and had DD 2months 'prem'
    baggy clothes and wide belts are your friend-high waisted skirts are great too!
    with drinks I had an 'earache' for ages so didn't drink. or I'd have soda water or plain diet coke.
    I got good at mixing very convincing mocktails!

    Just dont make it too much of a lie cos it may come back to bite you in the bum and hurt people.

    Id be making it simple like 'no thanks', 'why not'? 'because I said no' HA

    I'd accept the drink, and then leave it sitting there/next to you. If someone does say anything about not drinking it its much easier to laugh it off. "Oh, I completely forgot i even had it!" etc.

    Like GoldyMum said you dont want lie too much or hurt anyone...especially if you have to work with them for the next 9 months - being pregnant is hard enough!

    Just say u don't drink or u have to drive.

    I had to do this with close friends at a hens this past weekend. It's not hard. Every time someone offered I would say 'i'm going to have a water / juice first coz I have a headache' then they would pour me a water or juice and not think anything more of it. Each time it would be someone ifferent so no one put 2&2 together.

    People shouldn't expect / force / peer pressure anyone to do anything they don't want to anyway.

    I'll be honest, I love a glass of sparkling wine. Actually, it is the only white I will drink by choice.

    At the moment, at family do's I pretend I had a big night the night before and I have a hangover.

    Hopefully if all goes well in two weeks at the 12 weeks scan I can forget the charade and tell them the good news!

    Headache, antibiotics, upset stomach...all good suggestions.

    You could always go with the good old "im just pacing myself"...

    All good ideas but does anyone else find it weird how we always have toake excuses and explain ourselves? What's wrong with simple 'no thanks' and not being judged?
