Keep it simple! #AtoZChallenge

Last Chapter

After weeks of hassle, things were now looking up. Natasha’s parents were staying with them for time being. She was nearing the end of her first trimester and already planning how she would be spending her maternity break.

One moment she can be elated and in the next moment she would be bawling her eyes out over the events of last month. As it is, she suffered enough mood swings without being pregnant and now she was a walking pile of emotions. She would start crying at advertisements or start smiling at small things like getting an ice cream. And, she was told this is just the beginning!

She had not disclosed about her pregnancy in office and was still contemplating the future. To say or not to say summed up her daily struggle. She did not look pregnant but still she felt pregnant. She was unsure of how her colleagues would react. Her friends at work would be pretty excited or maybe she will get silent stares.

Things took a crazy turn when she broke down in office once after having a bad day. Back to back meetings and deliverable drove her mad. She loves her work and office but the emotions are running to high. And most of her meetings are spent running between the conference room and the loo. It would be better if she shifted her desk next to the toilets. At least it would save some time.

Maybe she can send out a mailer ‘I am expecting’ or sing it on top of her voice or paste the ultrasound scan photos on her boss’s desk! Too many thoughts and too much time to declare herself pregnant. Maybe she should just keep it simple!

    It always is tough when you are at a stage when you need additional support and understanding, and yet (for personal reasons) are unable to keep everyone informed. I think women are usually more emotionally intelligent in this regard…although not all women are.

    Nice topic.

      True, I have seen some people taking advantage of the circumstances when they could have easily completed deliverable and other women I saw was working till last of pregnancy insipite of her personal problems. Differs from person to person. Thanks for dropping by.

    I had quite a relaxed time in my office. I used to have a half an hour nap daily in the “resting room” after y 7th month. A comfortable cushion and feet rest was provided and my work load was light. I quite enjoyed the phase

      Lucky you! Even I had a relaxed last trimester but before that things were crazy.
