Trying to keep your pregnancy a secret for as long as possible, and noticed one to many lingering looks on your growing tum and bum? We’ve got some great responses to swerve attention away from the fact you’re expecting…
‘It’s my new BB cream’
You’ve been getting loads of comments on your lovely glow – but it’s definitely just down to your lovely new BB cream...

‘I haven’t been sleeping well’
Yep, that’s why you struggle to get up off your chair – you’re just that tired...
‘Yes, but look at my HAIR!’
There’s nothing like a brand new haircut to swerve people’s attention away from your waistline – and the bigger the better. A perm it is then…
