I was outed at work today. A co-worker said the "word on the street" is that I'm pregnant. She shares several mutual friends with my in-laws, so I'm not surprised that she heard.

I told her that yes, I'm pregnant, but I wasn't ready to tell the entire office. It was important for my boss to hear it from me though, so I marched right into her office and broke the news. She is so excited for us. I plan to tell the rest of my co-workers at our staff meeting next week.

It's a little disheartening to be outed before I was ready, but I know people are genuinely excited for us. I guess my fear with telling a lot of people is some combination of A) something could still happen to the baby, and B) I really don't like people focusing on my uterus.

But good news travels fast, so I guess I just have to get over it.


  1. Is it ok if I out you to my mom Sam? Cause I already did. She knows how excited I am about having friends with kids. She's super happy for you. And me ;)

  2. It's so true that once the wheels get rollings, its damn near impossible to stop it again. Revel in the support!
