How do you keep your pregnancy a secret until you’re ready to reveal it?

Cupid’s Advice:

If you’re not quite ready to share the joyous news of a pregnancy yet, there are ways to keep it quiet for a while:

1. Resist the hand-on-tummy move: Sometimes expectant mothers unknowingly rest their hands on their stomach, like Kate Middleton has been seen doing. When trying to hide a pregnancy,be conscious of this action and make an effort to keep your hands on your hips or elsewhere.

2. Dress to hide the bump: No one said that mothers-to-be can’t be trendy. Wear clothing that’s both in style and flattering to your growing figure, such as empire waist tops or dresses.

3. Look the part: If you don’t want people to know you’re pregnant, don’t look pregnant. This means keeping up with your hair and make-up and avoiding the puffy eyes which can cause a co-worker or friend to ask, “Are you feeling okay?”
