Help. Beginning of a nasty divorce. Two children 3 and under. Father moved long distance so I’m basically single mom but he’s instigating super nasty custody battle. I haven’t had a decent nights sleep in probably a year and a half (since before I got pregnant the second time). I’m so wrung out. I’m working full time - trying to adjust my schedule but harder to get that through than it looks. I have a small village which I’m using to the max. Going to therapy twice a week.

I'm not a mom yet (don't kick me out of the group!) but have been going through fertility and IVF treatments for more than 6 months. I'm constantly having bloodwork, appointments and calls with the doc during working hours. Any advice on what I can and should tell my team about my health? They can tell I'm in and out of the doctor's office and I suspect they think I'm pregnant. Maybe it's being chock-full of hormone pills, but I'm sensitive about everyone thinking I'm pregnant when I'm not.
