So in a very quick conversation this afternoon my boss made it apparent that she is under the impression that I'm pregnant.  I didn't have the chance to clarify at the moment and then she was off to a meeting. We spoke months ago about my desire for a second (her second is the same age as my first), so I'm guessing that's where it came from, but now what do I do?  It feels super awkward to bring it up again.  Do I just let it lie and then eventually I will be pregnant (or won't) and it'll be obvious?

How on earth did she express that? That's a pretty intimate thing to say. I think I'd be prone to just let it go and not bring it up. It's not really her business is it? (at this stage?)

you could casually in a group conversation in the lunch room say something about trying to TTC or hope to have a baby by time child 1 is x old, or hoping for xspacing between your kids, or something like that, if that is the type of thing that might come up without you bringing it up.
