Was ok in the morning. Announced to all and thanked them for their support. Got through the day with a brave face, but bam- hit a wall an hour before the end of the day.
Had had ENOUGH of pregnant colleagues talking about every aspect of their pregnancies in the different offices I worked in. I've heard about babies kicking, contractions, birth, maternity leave, wanting wine, leaving presents for baby/mum, tiredness, how excited they are, scans, a colleague pulling out a knitted jumper for baby, the whole lot.
It's baby central and it's just unfortunate timing. I am happy for them, but my loss is so raw right now.
I nearly lost it and cried uncontrollably until an intuitive colleague noticed my spaced out face and took me into a room for a chat and said she would tell our boss for me that I need to go home an hour early. It was so kind of her.
It saved a public melt down and allowed me some discretion. I don't want people to act differently around me, but it's so tiring putting the face on.😟💟
