35 Actionable Ways How to Hide Your Pregnancy! Despite Parties

Most women keep their pregnancy secret until the 12th week is over. And there are many reasons for that:

  • Miscarriageophobia
  • Arrive yourself in your new role
  • Clarify a few things in advance
  • Think about how you want to announce it 🙂
  • Be a little bit careful of well-intentioned comments and advice
  • Perhaps gather courage for delivering the news to the boss 😬

And sometimes you just want to decide for yourself when to tell how and to whom and not be typed on the shoulder in the hallway: “Are you pregnant?”. And if you want to tell your loved ones before the 12th, that’s okay, too!

I personally found it unbearably difficult, especially in the first trimester, to hide the pregnancy, because all day long I thought nothing else than: “I am pregnant, I am pregnant, I am pregnant”. Every now and then the thought came up: “Wow, I don’t think I thought about the pregnancy for a moment”. 😀

Which signs of pregnancy do you have to hide at all?

The good thing is, in the first weeks the pregnancy is usually hardly visible! It may be that the trousers become tight directly, but this can still be explained by a good lunch. 😉

Then it becomes more difficult with the topics: Nausea, alcohol renunciation, sudden cessation of smoking and severe tiredness. Not everyone has necessarily all indications and the change is not always noticeable.

But with us women in a certain age, quasi 20 to 40 years 😜 there one needs only times briefly to push open and is directly asked whether one is now pregnant!!?! 🙄

If you are known as a wine lover, the knocking out of a glass will probably lead to large eyes that will then migrate straight down to the belly.

But don’t worry, here are a few tips & tricks to help you hopefully stay incognito!

The Belly 🤰

Luckily the belly in the 1st trimester usually no problem, also water insoles, etc. come, if at all, usually further to the end. Even in the 8th month, I had to explain that I was pregnant and did not just eat well. 😄

However, it can happen that the trousers get tight quickly and one feels the waistband as unpleasant. There are pregnancy pants that you don’t recognize as such!

For this you can take a – not tight-fitting – top and there is already enough concealed.

You just have to swallow the aunt’s saying that it tastes good to you. 🙈

Alcohol Abstinence 🥂


I was lucky that beating out a beer doesn’t cause me to twitch my eyes. But if you like to be at the forefront, then it’s hard to go to a pub or bar and not drink anything without all the sayings ripping. And it would be a real shame if you stayed at home just to keep your cover!

Try one of the following:

  • The classic: You’re making a diet change. Whole30 is the latest trend. If you drop that, then most people will probably turn to 😄 anyway. Here you can find out about it in advance. However, you can also go on a less restrictive diet of your choice, because it should also go well with your evening snacks. 🥕
  • You can also call a fasting time. This could lead to an “eyebrow lifting”, but if you are known for such experiments, why not!
  • Or you come around the corner with weight loss and don’t forget to tell in detail how unhealthy and calorie-rich alcoholic beverages are. They will probably leave you alone. 🙈
  • Discipline exercise: You can also strengthen your self-confidence through discipline. This means that you will think about something that you can do in a disciplined way, e.g. do not consume alcohol for X weeks. And emphasize that you expect the support of your friends! Don’t forget to look outraged if they don’t all nod! 😄
  • A hangover from last weekend: You can also just look disgusted, holding your hand in front of your mouth and saying: “It’s too early, last weekend was wild, I’ll never drink again…”. 😩
  • Also a classic: You take antibiotics or another painkiller that is not compatible with alcohol. If you are curious, because otherwise you seem quite fit, you can end the conversation quite quickly by saying: “Is a bladder infection”. Let’s see if they ask any more questions. 😄
  • You lost a bet and now you have to give up alcohol for a long time. Or the bet is still running, it works too. But think in advance what kind of bet it was/is. 😉
  • Of course, you can also get the drinks or always organize your own drink, depending on what your wallet has to offer.
  • If you want some peace and quiet from “organizing drinks”, you can also simply make sure that your glass is as full as possible or say that someone is already getting something and enjoying a little breather.
  • If you are invited to a party, you can also fill a wine bottle with grape juice beforehand and not give it out of your hand. If someone wants something of it, then take a big sip directly from the bottle in front of the person and say: “Can you like it if you don’t mind that I have herpes?”. Cheers!
  • At the next wedding, you can also register as a driver and renounce alcohol.
  • You can also say that the next day you have a doctor’s examination where you have to come more than sober and therefore cannot drink today. If you are still persuaded, you can also say that you pay for the examination yourself and therefore do not want to accept any falsification. That’s it.

An acquaintance of mine even went so far as to go to the bar before meeting her colleagues, inaugurate the bartender and ask him that whenever someone orders a “round” she would like non-alcoholic beer in a normal glass. It worked! 😎

If you have several events in the weeks, you can try several alibis.

Let me know which one worked best and I would be very interested! 🤗

Stop Smoking 🚬


Even as a party smoker it can be conspicuous to suddenly renounce the cigarette, but it is absolutely necessary! Google times “Smoker Plazenta” (don’t do it!).

So also here we need some excuses:

  • The classic: “I was just”. Zack finished.
  • Or you have an inflammation in your mouth Your doctor advised you not to smoke so that it can heal.
  • Also here the lost bet goes! Or you have a bet running: That you can endure it X long without smoking.
  • And the discipline exercise also works here.
  • You can also say that you have just read a book on quitting smoking and are now trying to live smoke-free.
  • Or that you quit out of love for your (non-smoking) partner (and of course your unborn Baby🥰).
  • You can also say offensively that you are thinking about child planning and that you have already stopped smoking.

Too bad you might have to explain yourself to quit smoking. But it serves to distract the suspicion that it is because of pregnancy.

The Sickness 🤢

Nausea often associated with pregnancy is more difficult to conceal. Often you don’t feel sick only in the morning so that you could manage it better, but sometimes you feel sick the whole day long… And, I don’t know about you, but for me, the “nausea” sometimes came very suddenly, eehhwww!

Another sign with me also that I could take for example in the 1st trimester no milk products to me, with the thought of Latte Macchiato I became already bad! Stupid, if you have a morning coffee round at work and I don’t drink coffee for weeks… Actually, that was strange, but nobody had thought about me being pregnant… Also weird! 🤔

So now to a few ideas on how you can deal with it:

You could say that you are taking drugs that you do not tolerate
Depending on the group of recipients, you could also say that you changed the pill. A “or you are already pregnant” saying will probably come. So you should practice a meaningful eye roll. 🤨

Alternatively, you can also find an excuse for why you need to go to the toilet frequently.
So you can cover up nausea inconspicuously. But one thing is clear: Everyone will think that you are doing something different there… 🙈 But what can you do?! 😄

  • Also here you can say that you do not tolerate a medicine
  • Or that you ate something you can’t stand lately. Dairy products are good for intolerances.
  • Cystitis is also a good reason to go to the toilet frequently. 😜
  • Depending on how close you are to those involved, you can also indicate that you have your days. The topic of pregnancy is then completely off the table. 🤓
  • Among colleagues, you can also look at the mobile phone and go away every time important. After all, you could wait for a call from an office or workshop.
  • Tiredness 😴
  • Many pregnant women suffer from acute fatigue in their first trimester. Phew, I had that very much too! From 19.30 was as if I had been pulled the plug… But also during the day, I could have taken a few naps. Sure, the body is producing a completely new organ next to your baby, the placenta! It needs some energy for that.

The good thing is there can be many reasons for tiredness:

  • You might withdraw your coffee (I’ll have to remember that word for next time! 😄) and still suffer from the lack of caffeine.
  • Or your iron level is in the basement and you need to get a blood count before it can be treated.
  • Bad sleep: It’s full moon, the mattress is new, the partner snores, or or or or
  • Depending on how you can afford it at work, you can also report on your wild nightlife. 🥳
  • If necessary, you have obviously taken a horror drug that, in addition to alcohol and stomach problems, also makes you tired. 😉
  • Weather: Yes, the good weather, is probably a weather change or a low-pressure area, or too warm or so cold that you want to hibernate. Well, there’s always something. 🙃

Heavy lifting 🏋️

Another characteristic of pregnant women is that they are no longer allowed to lift heavily. So be prepared if someone asks you if you can help with the box of water or if you can count on you when you move! No more than 5 kg is the motto!

But also here it is not too difficult:

  • “I have back!” Peng.
  • One could still complain about hands, feet and other body parts that hurt. But not that it then means that you should only hold briefly, so be careful.
  • I think you now have a good portfolio of ideas from which you can choose the ones that suit you.

I am curious which you try out and how the reactions are, let me know! 🤗

Your Maisie 💕
