An Australian woman got creative to avoid those pesky airline baggage fees.In the end, though, she still wound up paying $60.Travel writer Rebecca Andrews, whose blog can be found at becandrews.com, recently found herself with an overweight carry-on bag. Her solution? Fake a pregnancy."I have a small frame and decided pretending to be preggo was the most believable route to a successful hack," Andrews said in an interview with CNN Travel.She wore a stretchy jumpsuit, concealing a number of items underneath ... including a laptop. She then covered everything with additional layers.But a sharp-eyed Jetstar Airlines flight attendant spotted the outline of the bulky laptop, and Andrews wound up paying a $60 fee."Was I embarrassed? Not at all," she told CNN Travel.
