Well, I’m pleased to say that I had the ‘chat’ with my manager today and all went well. As it turns out, she actually knew already! Apparently, our bodyguard of a month ago actually put it in his report – surely the guy would have known that at 5 weeks pregnant I hadn’t yet told work – sigh. Anyway, it turns out the entire management team have known for a month but were waiting for me to come out and say it. Apparently no hard feelings. Everyone is, as usual, being really supportive and is terribly happy for us both. I really am so fortunate to work in such an amazing environment!
It is pretty funny how people react when they find out you’re pregnant. Steph, a girl I work with and thankfully am good friends with, asked if she could feel my stomach today. I had to politely decline on grounds that it’s all just bloating rather than baby at the moment and recommended she wait a few months until there is something there too feel! Another woman thought it was ok to shout over the divide between the desks to ask what hospital I had chosen and who my gyno is!!! Not exactly general office conversation. Never-the-less I am over the moon to be pregnant and look forward to many more inappropriate questions and unsolicited gropings.
