I have been intern teaching the entire time I was pregnant. I found out I was expecting the 2nd month in. I’ve workedd in 2 different classrooms with one teacher the first half and now 2 others the 2nd half. I was close with my first mentor teacher, she helped me a lot, but I never told her I was pregnant, as we had not yet announced it to family, etc until after 3 months, which was last month, and I was already out of her classroom.
I now work alongside 2 teachers for the past month who are a little older than me. The relationship is totally different as they have always been kinda standoffish with me and only conversate when they need something. I was really firendly in the beginning with them, but then gave up. The only personal questions I have ever gotten was from one of them when she saw my rings and asked when I got married. The other one has never, ever tried to make normal small talk with me unrelated to doing something for her. Anyway, I had not planned on letting these 2 teachers know about my pregnancy since I’m leaving soon, my last day is next week, and I’m barely showing. I always wear loose blouses so it’s not noticable. I probably just look bloated. Plus, since techincally they’re not “real coworkers” who I’ve worked with for years or will probably ever see again, I didn’t see the big deal to tell them. My husband keeps telling me to tell them especially since next week my class is taking part in an annual fundraiser and my husband is afraid they will be asking me to move stuff or whatever. I did tell 2 other interns at the school who I’m friendly with and take lunch with every day. Another intern at my school is pregant, though I’m not sure if she annouced it to her coop. teacher, but us interns know.
So should I even bother mentioning anything to the two of them or not say anything? Also, I think it would be akward to even bring it up since we don’t talk on a persoanl level really. Do I just walk in and make up something up like I may have to go to a dr’s appt and then say it’s bc I’m pregnant?
