I need to keep from "popping"
Mon, 05-16-2011 - 6:12pm

So, I'm just wondering if anyone else has had this situation and how you would deal with it. We are keeping this pregnancy a secret, especially from our daughters! They have had so much loss in the past 2 years that it truly breaks my heart. I just found out that we are going to the beach for Memorial Day :smileyvery-happy: which is awesome and I think it will be OK because I will only be 10 weeks and don't think things will be that noticeable.

But at the end of June, we have to go for a week at the beach because SIL is getting married, my DDs are flower girls, huge family deal, etc. I will be 14-15 weeks and I can't figure out how to keep that a secret in a bathing suit. Since this is my 6th pregnancy and will be my 3rd child if he or she hangs on, I'm pretty sure I'll be showing by then because I'm very thin. Just wondering if anyone else has been in the situation of not being ready to tell people yet, but having a bump that gives it away. I'm not sure what to do other than wearing a Snuggie on the beach...

I totally understand not wanting to tell about the pg yet given your Hx...at what point are you going to tell? I haven't been in this situation, just wanted to say that a Snuggie on the beach would be priceless. ;-)

Hiding a pg. belly in the summer is hard.

How about a nice loose sun dress or cover up to go over your swim wear?

lol, the snuggie would be way awesome!!!

I like the swim suit cover up idea, or you could go get some swim shorts and a cute tankini top? that may be enough to cover??

While I love the Snuggie idea, how about a bathing suit that's kind of a swim dress. I know it sounds like something an old lady would wear, but I got a really cute one last summer that was a halter style (1 piece) and after my boobs, it kind of flared out into a cute little dress that hit the very top of my thighs. I got it because I had a little bit of a pooch that I was trying to cover up & I was told that it was very flattering...and it made my boobs look great!
