Helen at work asked me to be her bridesmaid at her wedding on September 15th. This is the first time I've been asked to be a bridesmaid since I was one for my Auntie when I was 8. Ironically the date of Helen's wedding is the date the baby is due. I knew at that point I was going to have to tell work so I went through to see my boss.

My boss is female so you would expect some understanding of the situation, especially since she is a mother herself albeit her children are grown up. I did not expect the following:

"You're pregnant to Daniel, the biggest tomcat in the town?" (well, in a way she was right, he was known for being a ladies man married or not)
"You're keeping the baby? Why on earth, it's only a bunch of cells."

Hmmm thanks for the support there and the sympathetic advice. I responded with "actually it's growing limbs at the moment". I couldn't think what else to say, I was in total shock at her cutting remarks.

After that I went and explained to Helen that with great disappointment I wouldn't be able to be her bridesmaid and told her I was pregnant. "Oh", was her simple response and then she got back to work.

Of course when the other girls in the office found out, they had all sensed beforehand. Apparently it's all in the eyes.

Bird on a Wire
Imagine Carrie from Sex and the City morphed with Bridget Jones and a baby thrown in for added entertainment – that’s me, the ever optimistic romantic looking for my Mr Big but already with child! Read my blog from the beginning where I find out I am pregnant following a brief fling with my much older male colleague and fast forward to where I am now, stressed out working mum to my beautiful 10 year old daughter wondering if love really does in fact exist at first sight.
