How do you keep your pregnancy a secret at the beginning?
Finding the right time to tell everyone about your pregnancy can be difficult. ¬†Many women wait until they have gotten past the first trimester and others blurt it out as soon as they find out. ¬†But just in case you were thinking about holding your tongue, Cupid has some tips:
1. Keep the changes to yourself: You may start to feel extra bloated and moody. ¬†Keep those feelings at bay and don’t speak to others about it. ¬†People will start to get suspicious. ¬†Play it cool.
2. Try not to shop: Baby clothes are so cute, and it’s hard to say “no” once you know that you’re expecting. ¬†Be strong, and don’t let a trail of baby clothes give you away.
3. Tell one person: It’s hard to keep such a big secret. ¬†Tell one person that you trust, and ask them not to tell. ¬†Getting it off your chest will keep you from being stressed.
