My boss, who gave me such a ration of crap when I told her I was pregnant earlier this year, called last night to congratulate me on my new little guy (born on Halloween) and tell me she is 18 wks pregnant with twins. The whole office had been speculating for weeks now and so far I'm the only one she has told and doesn't plan to tell anyone else for a couple weeks. Ugh I hate keeping secrets like that but I will because it's not my news to tell and I'd be pissed if someone broke my confidence like that. Hopefully this experience will give her a better perspective of work life balance and relieve some of her high expectations of me. Not that I can't meet them but less stress is always a good thing!
