Since these are all parents (obviously) they have all gone through pregnancy so they will completely understand. I think it is a good idea to be upfront and let them know it is still early so you would rather they didnt’ say anything to the kiddos until you are out of the first trimester.  Just let them know you wanted them to understand your absences and that you are still 100% committed to teaching their kids.

I wouldn’t worry about anyone being upset except your employer.  Tell the parents when you are comfortable but I wouldn’t do it solely because you are feeling bad about missing so much work.  They’ll find out eventually and be understanding.  If they aren’t understand then too bad for them.  You have to do what is best for you and your baby.

If you want to say something but you don’t want to announce your pregnancy quite yet, you can say you have a medical issue you are currently working through and emphasize that it is temporary. I don’t think you should feel obligated to announce your PG ahead of time and I think if you leave it as a generic medical issue, people will assume it is serious but then not something you want to discuss further.

If you aren’t comfortable saying anything then don’t. You are not obligated to say anything, and I am sure if they did know, they would understand. You need to take care of yourself first, whether you are pregnant or not.

@Mrs.H2B:  Personally, if I were almost 12 weeks I would just say it and move on, but if you’re not 100% comfortable sharing then don’t! They don’t need an explanation, your principle sounds very supportive and that’s the only person who needs an explanation. Plus if you don’t feel like telling now, in a couple months they’ll definitely know!
