Fibbing (?) at work about being upduffed....
I feel bad keeping being pregnant a secret. I spent years of my life keeping my work and home life so separate. I was almost obsessive about it. I was fighting hard for my career and things at home were sometimes horrendous, so it became self-preservation to never mix the two. So much easier to be vague or say nothing.
Now I've grown up a bit, I'm happy as a pig in ****, I'm much more comfortable with myself, more confident in my abilities, and pretty open about myself. For example, in years gone by I used to hide the fact I was going to slimming world because I felt embarrassed about being overweight, now I happily chat at work about fat club and sometimes even pop off for my weigh-in during the working day. I much prefer things this way.
It feels a bit weird keeping being pregnant from my team. There's 5 of them and they're all so lovely, 2 younger girls in particular. They're asking about the porridge pots I'm bringing in to work now, the headaches I seem to get all the time, I look upset/ill. They're so sweet. I feel a bit cheeky really, like a fraud, for not telling them.
I know it's for the best, particularly as I don't want my MD finding out. I've only been here 3 months and no way did I expect, at 37, to get pregnant first time. I just feel a bit rude because the people are so nice. Did anyone else feel bad not telling the people they work with every day?
