I am 10 weeks pregnant so it's still early days. I found out over the Christmas period and have had 5 continuous weeks of relentless sickness so have been signed off work as a result. In fact - I had two weeks signed off then because I was desperate to get back to school I have been going in on reduced hours and organising all my cover etc. When I had to call in sick the first time, I felt that I should tell my head teacher and the PA who sorts cover out that I was pregnant in order to make communication clear - it's very rare that I am away from school and I wanted to be honest from the start. However, I made it very clear that I did not want anyone else to know until I am ready to share. Last week I was told that the PA told our school nurse without my permission - but I understood this as it was to ensure that I could be informed of any bugs/illnesses that might be going around school. I was a little concerned as the nurse's daughter is in my tutor group - but I fully trusted this would be confidential. But, today I was told that they had to tell the exams officer that I am pregnant earlier on in the week - the reason isn't particularly clear as to why. And knowing that legally I didn't need to tell my employer at this early stage in my pregnancy but have done out of respect, I am incredibly angry that more people now know - and people I do not know or trust! Am I overreacting? I want to question exactly why the exams officer needed to know - surely she just needs to know that I am ill and not working full time right now but that I will take care of any issues when I return and am in good health. Maybe it's the hormones but I do feel really angry about this...perhaps I should get a grip!! It's just there are a LOT of nosey people at my school and I feel strongly it's nobody's business until I decide! Thanks in advance for any response!
