Im five weeks pregnant and have decided to keep my baby. Im only seventeen so need to keep my pregnancy a secret for as long as possible at work and very importantly sixth form. So could I please have some advice on:
1. How to hide my baby bump?
2. How to get out of drinking alcohol without sounding suspicous?
3. How to get out of sports eg. ice skating?
4. Any other tips to keep my pregnancy a secret?
Thanks love Amy x 😉October 22, 2007 at 8:51 pm #19176Mommyof2babies
well first off hiding your pregnancy is a very very bad idea..many things can happen to your baby from hiding so sry but i cant give u advice on concealing a pregnancy.October 23, 2007 at 5:29 am #19180Mommy2Kylie
Agreed, you should never hide a pregnancy, A pregnancy should be looked after by a doctor from the get go, besides what are you afraid of by letting people know? No one can take your baby from you or make you give it up. That is a choice of your own no matter what your age.October 23, 2007 at 7:59 am #19185breathless
Yeah I’m not sure why you want to hide your bump?? People are going to find out anyway and as soon as I found out I told my work (I am fifteen) and they didn’t care, they just wanted to know how much longer I would be working there…I guess in some schools they kick you out if you’re pregnant, I’m guessing you’re in one of those, well that’s a tough one. As for drinking and stuff I guess you couldn’t just tell your friends because they go to your school and word spreads yadda yadda…I don’t know girl!! My grandma hid her pregnancy for nine months in the 50’s (she got pregnant with a black man’s child) and she did it by wearing baggy sweaters and other clothes but I guess if you wear a certain type of clothes than people would notice either way..? As for sports, skating isn’t all that dangerous is it? Well I guess it depends! Wow, I wrote a whoole bunch about nothing and haven’t helped you out at all. I am sorry, I just don’t think you should hide it, and the only suggestion I can think of is faking an injury (sports) telling people you are waiting till you are legal (drinking) and wearing baggy clothes (school) other than that…I just don’t know.October 23, 2007 at 5:43 pm #19201amy.g.111
Your right girls but im waiting till im atleast 12 weeks before i tell my friends. The pregnancy isnt a secret from family and close friends.October 24, 2007 at 6:27 am #19206kez_mummy_2_skye
um honestly probably is best telling your friends also. If they are ‘real’ friends they will support you. Getting out of the alcohol thing, tell them you dnt feel too well or something, its ur choice if you dnt want any anyways. Hope all goes well!October 25, 2007 at 5:56 am #19219bweber
i agree with everyone else, it’s a bad idea to hide a pregnancy….i see u have read the other replies…i dont see y u have to hide it from ur friends? if they r truly ur friends they will understand…also u should not be drinking alcohol ne ways, ur only 17!…October 26, 2007 at 9:24 pm #19230Amber18
I went for 7 months with no one knowing i was pregnant. I drank and did everything normal. I didnt really do much to hide it. Just wear maybe baggie tops or sumin thats all i did.
Bit of advice though dont hide it from your friends, i still havent told my friends and am trying so hard to tell them now but i really cant find the words because i hide it for so long. You will need your friends for support. I needed my friends but I chose not to tell them and i regret itOctober 29, 2007 at 10:24 pm #19283justkeepsmilin
