My brother and his girlfriend came to visit when we were 10 weeks pregnant… A big thing we do is visit breweries.  I was definitely gaining weight at that time, and the pictures weren’t pretty.  But my brother kept making comments about me not drinking at the breweries, and was STILL surprised when I told him I was pregnant!  His girlfriend didn’t say anything if she suspected. lol

But a good excuse might be that you’re on a new diet plan and can only drink X amount per day, or you’re on antibiotics.

JiminyCricket :  say you’re on antibiotics! Never fails. If they pry, say you have a UTI, that’ll shut them up 😂

I just had this dilemma yesterday haha. I was supposed to go to a cider festival with work friends. In the end I said I had family coming uo to visit unexpectedly (which was true but I could have easily seen them before the festival haha). I just said they didn’t want to pay for tickets to come join us at the festival so I was going to see them as I hadn’t for 6+ months. By the time I met up with them for dinner after, they were so tipsy I could have told them anything 😛. Congrats!

JiminyCricket :  I would fake an illness or say your husband is sick since you already used that excuse for yourself. Then maybe you could say for the future you are doing a month of no alcohol in order to be healthier? That’s what I did….I just told my friends I was doing a sober month to try and be healthier and lose a few pounds. They totally bought it and i decided to tell them I was doing it a second month to becuase it was working so well. Honestly I did lose weight in the 1st trimester so it all lined up. Now by month 3 I had to tell bc they would have all been suspicious by then but it was time to tell by 12 weeks. A lot of my friends were shocked because they said they had no clue and kicked themselves for not guessing! Good luck!

This might sound weird since I’ve never been to a winery but are you meant to take big or small sips.  Can you pretend to take a sip but not actually?  Bring it to your lips and then bring it down and pretend to swallow?  I’m assuming you’re supposed to be taking small sips for a taste.
