Is there a way to hide the pregnancy for the first 5 months? 2 miscarriages before last one at 21 weeks so we'd like to keep it to ourselves.

Is there a way to hide the pregnancy for the first 5 months? 2 miscarriages before last one at 21 weeks so we'd like to keep it to ourselves.

Depends: Whether you can keep your wonderful news secret will depend on how you carry the baby. For some, "flowy" tops are all that is needed to look the same for months, while others seem to grow straight out and show at 3 months. I suggest simply not offering the news, and if anyone is bold enough to ask, answer with something vague like, "why, do I LOOK it?" Good luck!! ...Read more

Usually heparin or some other anticoagulant is given during the pregnancy ...Read more
