My apologies if this has been discussed recently, but I searched and couldn't find exactly what I'm looking for.
I'm fresh from the TTC board, not even 4 weeks along yet, but I'm already worried about "hiding" my early pregnancy. I'm older (38) and have additional risk factors for miscarriage and also plan to do genetic testing, so we do not want to tell anyone (including family) until at least 12 weeks. However, I see family fairly often, and we're all known for being somewhat avid drinkers, and it will be very plainly obvious that I'm not drinking. My family can also be a bit blunt and probing (they mean well, I'm sure). I don't want to outright lie, but I'd love to have some vague canned answer that I can give whenever someone says "oh, are you pregnant?!?" Has anyone else come up with something? Other ideas?
