No, I'm just getting fat

Telling my boss was not difficult. I had already been trying to change positions in the company and after a previous miscarriage (one year earlier), it was expected that I would try again.

I did switch to working in the school. Their only concern was that I try to make it to the end of the school year (which I did by one day before getting put on bed rest).

It was harder for me to tell the kids that I work with. They all have behavior problems and I did not want to be a target for them.

As I grew, several of the kids commented on how fat I was getting. Finally when I was over 7 months pregnant and HUGE, (I had gained about 50 pounds at that point), some of the kids figured it out.
