    In about 15 minutes I am telling the headteacher of the school I am at that I am pregnant!

    I have told some other people and got a good reaction but I am still scared.

    I've had a lot to sort out as I am a probationer teacher and have to do my year but that all got sorted yesterday so I know what is going to happen regarding it all and I don't have to worry as much.

    Thats good then.

    I never had to tell my headteacher just my line manager, I've only seen the head for Risk assessments.

    No not a pupil :lol:

    No men don't normally say anything - he did say congratulations which I'm not used to hearing.

    Well done for telling him - do you have a small bump? How have you managed to keep it secret so long?!

    Sounds like he reacted better than mine did - the first thing he said was "Sorry about the crap maternity pay" rather than "congratulations" - hmm men.

    I don't get maternity pay so he didn't really say anything about that.

    I don't have a bump at all tbh - but something is coming :lol:

    I have lost so much weight from being sick

    Bee - have you been working up until now? Just wondering cos I'm a teacher too and was doing supply during my pregnancy so I wasn't eligible for any SMP but could claim Maternity Allowance from the job centre.
