* Completely averted [[labelnote:*]] Mostly. There were a few instances of wrap-ups trying (poorly) to hide her bump if the myth in question was filmed before she began showing.[[/labelnote]] with Kari Byron of the ''Series/MythBusters'' team, with the show being a non-fiction science series and all. Because of her pregnancy, she [[OneDrinkWillKillTheBaby couldn't participate in the hangover myth.]] Didn't stop her from enjoying Grant and Tory's discomfiture and their HangoverSensitivity [[NoSympathy way too much, though]]. She also exercised extra precautions when doing gun myths and even wore a bulletproof vest designed for pregnant women.

* On ‘’Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000’’ Kinga’s wardrobe in season 11 was supposed to be more varied. Felicia Day’s pregnancy necessitated that she be in an overcoat all season instead.

* ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'': The character Keiko O'Brien was already pregnant when Kira's actress, Creator/NanaVisitor, became pregnant. As Keiko's actress was not pregnant, a [[WrittenInInfirmity technobabble solution]] was found: a runabout carrying Keiko, Kira and Bashir was involved in a major incident that left Keiko so badly injured the only way to save the unborn baby was to adapt the transporters on the fly to move the baby to the only other available womb. Due to peculiarities of Bajoran physiology, the baby couldn't be transferred back once Keiko had recovered, resulting in Kira moving into the O'Brien's quarters for the remainder of the pregnancy so that the parents could still feel involved with their child's pregnancy. When the [[WrittenInInfirmity pregnancy symptoms]] get too much for Kira, she has an argument with Bashir about how this is his fault. While she's referring to his decision to transfer the baby, it's a show in-joke as Bashir's actor, Alexander Siddig, was the father of Nana Visitor's baby.

* ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' figured out a...let's say creative way of avoiding this trope with Creator/NanaVisitor's pregnancy by turning Major Kira into an [[WrittenInInfirmity emergency surrogate mother]] for the O'Briens (Amusingly, the father of Visitor's child was costar Alexander Siddig, who played Dr. Bashir).

* If you decide to romance Doc as the Jedi Knight in ''Videogame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic'', you'll have a chat about having kids. Since Jedi aren't supposed to have families, he reckons you wouldn't have a problem hiding a pregnancy under all those robes, and when it is born, he'll pretend it's a distant cousin.
** In the backstory, ''Grandmaster Satele'' did this when she wound up pregnant (and gave the kid up for adoption). Meaning she's more than a bit of a hypocrite when it comes to the "no attachment, no families" doctrine.
* If you romance Aerie throughout ''Videogame/BaldursGate2'' and its expansion the end result is pregnancy while you are in still in the middle of adventuring. Rather smartly Aerie mentions that until the later stages it wont be visible under her long flowing robes. The reason why she decides to hide it from the rest of your party is that she has only recently managed to prove herself as competent in their eyes and does not want their pity or insistence that she needs to slow down.
* Christa, in ''VideoGame/TheWalkingDead'' fits this trope. She attempts to hide her pregnancy from the group, probably fearing they'll kick her and Omid out if Lee and Kenny found out. When Lee asks what she and Omid were arguing about, she tells him to mind his own business, when she vomits due to the rotting dog (no one else did, not even Clementine), she tries to pass it off as the extreme smell. Also, Lee and Vernon find a sonogram, and she says, with a tone of familiarity, "It's a sonogram." Eventually, Kenny finds out when he offers her whiskey. She takes the bottle, and looks down at her stomach. Kenny stares at her for a moment, and them she gulps down about half the bottle before handing it back to Kenny. It's implied by his facial expression, he was thinking, "Holy shit! She must be pregnant!"

* When ''Series/{{JAG}}'' actress Catherine Bell became pregnant in season 8, her character Lt. Colonel Sarah "Mac" Mackenzie was in-universe temporarily assigned to the Navy-Marine Corps Judiciary, which to allow her to sit behind a big bench. (Navy-Marine Corps judges don't wear robes.) The show also exploited Bell's pregnancy by having Harm suddenly go through a bout of madness where he sees every woman in the JAG office as being pregnant, followed by the season finale, where she went undercover as the pregnant wife of her real-world husband.
