Help! How do I keep my pregnancy a secret?


My husband and I just found out last week that after 1.5 years of trying I’m finally pregnant!! I’m about 5 weeks and we are planning on waiting until 12 weeks to tell family. We want to make sure we’re out of the woods since we know the first trimester is where you have the greatest risk of miscarrying.

My question is - how did you hide your pregnancy? I have a few family parties coming up and EVERYONE will notice if I’m not drinking so how did you combat this? My husband and I have been married for 6 years and my family has been relentless about when we are having kids and they always are looking for clues if I could be pregnant (very annoying) so I know they’ll notice me not drinking.

I was thinking I’d pour myself a drink and just never actually drink it and hope no one notices. Or possibly replace a legit bottle of wine with a screw cap with non alcoholic if that’s safe for me to drink 🤷🏼‍♀️
