One person at work knows about my pregnancy. I’ve been using her as a gut check on … well, ah, on my gut. She’s been helping to confirm that I’m doing a good job of hiding the belly. Today she pulled me aside to tell me that another girl we work with (there are only a few of ladies here and they are all younger than me by 7-10 years for the most part) is sort of on to me. I guess the girl asked if I looked “different” and the conversation went to me possibly being pregnant. My friend played dumb and then the girl said that she would be so excited if I was going to be a mom.
And when my friend was telling me all this, I was thinking to myself: OMG, I am going to be a mom. I’m going to be a mom. It’s sounds so foreign. I’m so excited.
And then I realized that I definitely have to come out to my employer next week. I can’t let them hear rumors through the grapevine. That would just be awful.
Okay, off to my appointment! Heartbeats and ultrasounds, here I come!
