Good morning ladies! Who has plans for NYE and how do you plan on hiding your new pregnancy???

We bought tickets for a party with a HUGE group of friends a while back. Everyone is going to be all dressed up and there is a band and food and each person gets 10 drink tickets! I am not a huge drinker, but our friends would definitely be suspicious if I wasn't drinking on NYE.

How to hide it?? My plan of attack consists of the following:

1. Ye Olde Switcheroo - Get DH and I drinks. I pretend to sip mine, while DH drinks his. Then when he is almost done, we switch drinks. So I have a half drank cocktail in my hand!

2. The Faux Drink - Order a tonic water with lime (hold the vodka), or a Sprite on the rocks. Pray no one wants to try it.

3. The Bathroom Deplete - Order drinks like normal, pour out some in bathroom at random times.

4. Bait N Switch - Carry the same half empty drink around all night, give away my drink tickets to drunk friends.

Hope this works! Ill be 5 weeks on NYE and not ready to tell anyone else! What are your plans?!

Haha - I love that you posted about this. My husband and I have been discussing! We're going to dinner with my best friend and her husband (who know) and another couple (who don't, but who are 7 months pregnant themselves!) I'm thinking I might just say I haven't been feeling well and have decided to cut back....I figure since one of the other women won't be drinking, maybe it won't be weird? I can definitely see how a party would be more challenging - I think the faux drink is that way to go! Get a club soda with a splash of cranberry, and it will look like a Cape Codder! I think if you say its a basic, boring drink no one will want a taste!

I definitely like the faux drink idea- my sister did that on New Years when she was preggo and it was too soon to tell. She actually was really proactive about it and had me taste her drink. I did and she said, "isn't that awesome? You can't even taste the liquor!" Of course there wasn't any in it. So I ordered the same drink (hers a virgin, mine not) and didn't think anything of it.

The bathroom idea may look suspicious with you taking it in with you and the bait and switch may get you in trouble if you're holding your DH's and some drunk friend wants to do cheers, etc. (my drunk friends would totally do that without knowing the issue)....love the faux idea though

Just lurking but we had a big party to attend right after I found out I was pregnant & we weren't telling anyone yet. My "drink" of choice was cranberry & sprite & told everyone that it was cranberry & vodka. Everyone bought it & didn't think anything of it! Good luck & congratulations!

HAHA I did a lot!

Hubby bought me alcohol free wine so I had that for the pre-party. At the party I had tonic water with a lime. I told people it was vodka tonic, one of my girlfriends even tried it LOL! She was so tipsy she didn't even notice there was no alcohol. And then DH and my sister filled up beer bottles with water in the bathroom - that was a good one!

I think everyone was none the wiser! YEA!!
