So, my Dear Colleague who knows everything about my fertility treatment is also a source of information for me at work. She has a way of finding out things about others that I will never be able to find out. One day she went to a social function and hung out with a bunch of work people including my supervisor. My Dear Colleague was commenting on my Pregnant Coworker, wondering why she would announce her pregnancy so early at 7 weeks. Once she said that, people started rolling their eyes and grumbling about how Pregnant Coworker is over the top with her talk about her pregnancy. They said that she mentions about her pregnancy every time she opens her mouth. One time a manufacturer representative said that he would bring chocolate to a presentation. Pregnant Coworker immediately said that she couldn’t eat any chocolate because the caffeine is not good for her pregnancy. My supervisor said she audibly let out a sound of disgust once she heard that. My supervisor also said this, “Oh and she has the guts to be talking about her pregnancy right in Isabelle’s face.” Wow, I didn’t know that Pregnant Coworker has been that obvious and other people have been watching us. I have never told my supervisor about our fertility journey. However, about a year ago, she was riding with my Dear Colleague in a car. She did mention to my Dear Colleague that she didn’t want to pry or ask for details, but she wanted to know if Bob and I were okay. My Dear Colleague didn’t tell her details but just told her to think very good thoughts for us. That was around the time we had our chemical pregnancy. I know that work people have probably been wondering about us because we’ve been married for almost four years but still have no babies. I kind of feel a bit vindicated that I am not the only person who thought that my Pregnant Coworker is a bit over the top with her pregnancy. My supervisor apparently is going to start trying after her overseas honeymoon in a month. I hope that she will be more sensitive and compassionate when/if she needs to announce her pregnancy. And that she will also be able to enjoy a piece of chocolate, unlike my Pregnant Coworker who worries about the trace amount of caffeine in it.
