Hi everyone! Just wanted to introduce myself and maybe get some general advice. This is my first pregnancy. I am 6 weeks and a few days, so I haven't really told many people yet bc i am at least waiting unitl we can hear the fetal heartbeat. The baby wasn't exactly planned, but me and my husband are happy. We are also anxious, as I just accepted a new job, signed a contract out of state for a start date of November 1st, so we have to re-locate in about 8 weeks. There is a strong chance my start date will be delayed by a month or two--i work in health care and by the time the paperwork is fully processed it can take longer then expected. My question is how do I go about telling my new colleagues about the pregnancy? By the time I move there it will probably be obvious that I am pregnant, and I am due tentatively in April--which leaves me just a few months( maybe less) at my new job before taking maternity leave. I work in a male dominated field, so I'm not sure how they are going to take this news. This baby is my new top priority in life, but I am also the primary bread winner for now, and do take my career very seriously,,so as a new hire, I would appreciate any advice any of you working mommies could give me!!!! Thanks!!!
Also, I am only in the first trimester, have every abdominal symtom that exists and feel like this :
, again appreciate any help
