I’m 15 weeks this week and we just told some friends of ours the exciting news… except one of them texted me after the fact to say “I did notice that you were getting ‘bigger,’ but I just chalked it up to the stress of your new manager role. Glad to hear it’s bc you’re pregnant!”

After any meeting I’m in where I need to speak, I’m left feeling pretty awful and stupid. What should I do?

Would you have a conversation or run?
