Playing With / Hide Your Pregnancy

Basic Trope: Hiding an actress' pregnant belly to avoid having it be written into the story.
  • Straight: Alice's actress Jane becomes pregnant halfway through the third season - the producers hide this using loose, baggy clothing and Scenery Censors.
  • Exaggerated: Jane is expecting decuplets and is absolutely massive, but the producers still manage to hide it by having her always simply having her head sticking out from behind a wall.
  • Downplayed: Jane's body is edited to make her bump look smaller.
  • Inverted: Jane's big belly is the main focus of virtually every shot.
  • Averted: Jane's pregnancy is written into the story.
