A Hurtful Thing
This sort of does and sort of doesn't have to do with pregnancy.
I recently quit my job because it was too much stress for too little pay and my whole life was work and not my family. From the moment I started that job there was too much to do and not enough people to do it. And it never ended. I did not have experience in that industry, but I did know a lot about programming, certain programs, and other things that made me a good fit to help out and get many things done. I ended up with three very important ongoing projects/tasks that I was running for multiple facilities. So quitting just didn't seem to be an option. I used my MIL's health issues as an excuse to jump ship and I stayed on and trained people for each thing, which processes were also documented for. So after leaving, I have heard that my co-workers are not allowed vacations this summer because there is too much to do and they still have not found my replacement. This happens all to often at many places of business these days, but I did feel guilty leaving. And even worse hearing that my fears were confirmed, my ex-co-workers are suffering in my absence.
Turns out I conceived on the last day of work, which I did not find out until about a month later. It was not my intention to leave and grow our family, but that is how it happened. I even had a yard sale the week before I got the BFP and got rid of a ton of baby stuff!
So here's the thing that I wanted to share. I am Facebook friends with all of my co-workers including my supervisors. I just found out today that my immediate supervisor unfriended me on Facebook. I know, this is not important, but it still hurts. We were very different people, but I still liked her. And it seems that I stopped seeing things from her around the time that I broke the news to a friend from the office that I was pregnant. I wonder if it's because she's mad at me for leaving, mad at me for getting pregnant, or maybe she never liked me. Hard to say. I will just have to get over it.
Anyway, just wanted to get it off my chest. I'm hormonal, so I'm thinking it's okay to do so.
