One more thing about today. (I know that this is three posts in one day, but oh well.)

My boss announced to my entire category on Friday (while I was out) that the reason that I was cutting back to four days a week was that I couldn't get pregnant. I know that he needed to give a reason, because people were asking, but I just feel so embarrassed.

Of course, I didn't know that he did this until today. All day yesterday and today, I've had a parade of co-workers (who I know mean well) giving me sympathy and advice. Lots of advice. One girl (who has a baby, therefore she is an expert) gave me a list of herbs that I should take, including cramp bark and false unicorn root. Apparently it worked for someone she knows. One person, who is pregnant with twins, told me that I just needed to relax and to "keep her posted." One lady ambushed me at the copier machine and started asking me really personal questions. I felt tears welling up in my eyes, and tried to get away before I started crying.

I just feel so embarrassed and vulnerable.
