As above - if entertaining at home I often did the non alcoholic wine thing, or said I was the designated driver if out and about. Even managed to get through a wine tour weekend with my work when I was about 10 weeks pregnant and no one knew except my boss and obviously hubby. Started out at 10am with the tour not drinking because "I didnt feel well but would have a few later" and as the day progressed and everyone got tipsier I just pretended to share hubby's or snuck my drink to him and no one was any the wiser!

At an engagement party I went to (it was outdoors at night) I filled a champagne glass with lemonade and threw in a strawberry - no one was any the wiser lol

I found out a week before a big birthday party I'd organised, at a bar, with heaps of friends who I didn't want to tell yet.
I knew I'd fail with the fake drinks thing so I told everyone I was on really strong antibiotics that you can't drink with. Then for a couple of weeks after I was able to blame 'still feeling a bit off' from my fake illness.
I'm a terrible liar so most people at work figured it out by the 12 week mark but were too polite to ask.
It makes you realise how much of a role alcohol plays in our day to day lives!
