Ok, I no longer think this is the same paranoia I've had where everyone seems to be talking about babies a lot. Tonight coworkers were staring at me when I leaned forward at the table to eat and my pants were shoved below my belly with some bare side-midriff as my shirt popped up a bit. I got some weird comments from parents at tonight's graduation, too. Instead of, "Have a great summer!" they said things like, "I hope you have a healthy summer. Really, a very healthy summer." Uh ... ok. I don't think people normally say these things.
Doppler appointment is Saturday, appointments to talk to the bosses are on Monday. Must hide this for just ONE more work day!!!
I kept hearing how you don't start showing with the first baby until you're like 5 months along and so many people keep it all a secret until the end of the first trimester ... but these people must not work with all 30-year-old women who seemingly endlessly take turns on maternity leave and who notice every little thing!
One more day with regular pants and a belt - yes, I can do this. Then it's elastic pants all the way! And of course this afternoon we have WINE TASTING at work!! How is that even normal?
Lol it just all depends on your body type as to when you'll show, and no two women or pregnancies are alike! This being my fourth baby, I couldn't hide it if someone paid me to! I've been showing for a month! Do you mind if I ask why you're waiting to tell people? Have you had a history of m/c?

Do you mind if I ask why you're waiting to tell people?
Precisely. No history of anything but forgetting a condom ONCE 10 weeks ago and winding up pregnant! Telling at the end of the school year when everyone is already freaking out just seemed so ridiculously not worth it and the timing worked out that the end of the school year = 12 weeks pregnant, so ... I just waited.
Loads of teachers were exhausted and not feeling the wine tasting this afternoon so that was good for me, though one boss was like, "LAST DAY! GRAB A GLASS OF WINE!!!" I had to do some extra hiding today when I ended up throwing up on campus a few times. I also found out another colleague is just a few days ahead of me in her second pregnancy and I never even noticed. So maybe they don't know. We'll see Monday!
Oh yeah and heart beat appointment tomorrow!!!
