So it has to happen sooner or later... I need to tell my department that I'm pregnant, and I don't want to freak them out. I know my maternity leave will be a lot of work on their shoulders.
I was going to tell them last week, but one of the girls was sick. And another of the girls burst into tears in my office because her period started and she was TTC. So I don't want to rub it in or make her feel bad.
But it has to happen soon. I want them to hear it from me and I think I'm starting to show--oddly enough the residents are the ones who seem to suspect things. And I want to start wearing maternity pants because I am just not comfy in my regular pants anymore.
Our staff meeting is this Wednesday. Any suggestions?
