Okay, so unlike celebrities, most of us regular folks don't have paparazzi photographing our every move, and tabloids wondering if our belly bloat is actually a baby bump—but that doesn't mean that we don't want to reveal our pregnancy news on our own terms, just like the stars!

And as Us Weekly reports, moms-to-be who are still trying to keep their pregnancies under wraps can learn a thing or two about baby bump-hiding from celebrity mamas and mamas-to-be like Kourtney Kardashian, Rachel Bilson, and Hayden Panettiere.

Bilson and Panettiere, Us reports, are normally fans of "body-con dresses" but were photographed more recently in fit-and-flare frocks with cinched waists and full skirts. Jackets (or bulky sweaters) are another tried-and-true bump-deflection device, as demonstrated in recent weeks by Kardashian and first-time mom-to-be Scarlett Johansson. And you can always rely on a prop like an actual baby (Kardashian) or a shopping bag—although, let's be honest, those are more practical for an on-the-go star trying to fool the paparazzi than they are for a preggo trying to avoid prying eyes at the office.

Of course, there are other ways to hide your first-trimester baby bump, too, like accessorizing strategically or showing off some of that growing cleavage (hello!). Or check out the tips in the video, below...

See what your growing pregnant belly will look like month by month! And don't forget to like Everything Pregnancy on Facebook to keep up with the latest pregnancy news.
