Pregnancy announcements from formerly CFBC friends
Mon, 11-05-2012 - 4:38pm

This morning, our whole department was CC'd on an email from a former coworker: she's pregnant and attached several photos of the announcement they're going to share with their families and friends.

Previously, this woman was VERY outspoken about being child-free.

She appears to be happy about this but I have to admit my initial (internal) reaction was "I'm glad it's her and not me!" LOL

From past experience, I also worry that this might open the door for debates from my current coworkers. Yes, I know T experienced an unexpected pregnancy and is now thrilled at the prospect of parenthood. That doesn't mean I'm at risk of changing my mind. For one, thing, given DH's 7-y.o. vascetomy, I would have some MAJOR explaining to do if I turned up pregnant. LOL

I definitely hope your co-workers don't start questioning your decision. (As if it's any of their business!) I've known a few people who have changed their minds. It's surprising, but it's not really my business either.

And congrats to you and your DH on your anniversary! :)
