My employee finally fessed up to her pregnancy yesterday. I took it pretty well. I've been rehearsing my response for weeks now, so I had time to prepare. I did call her on the fact that I suspected back in August, and she wasn't really hiding anything by wearing maternity pants and sporting a giant baby bump. She's due March 8th and is having a boy. That hurt a bit, because we call the baby we miscarried a boy - even though we don't know for sure.
I did have a hard moment today when I was doing something for work with my boss. We were discussing staff salaries and if anyone had unpaid medical leave. She pointed out that last fiscal year, this employee was on maternity leave. It hit me that she would have maternity leave two fiscal year's in a row. I think I've been lapped twice, and that truly sucks.
