Team activity to go to a theme park. 10 weeks and haven’t told anyone at work. Pretending to feel sick or disinterested. I’ve already made up food poisoning to explain diet changes. Lies are tough!

You can go to the theme park , but just say you have motion sickness - unless they want to see you puke 🤮 on them they better not force you :) once the secret is out they will put two and two together!

Okay I’m not pregnant and I still won’t go on most theme park rides so I think you’ll be fine.

I had the same situation. Told everyone I didn’t like roller coasters and got motion sickness. Worked for me! But I really love all rides so I was super bummed to not go on any. It was firm sponsored, the park was shut down for us, no lines...Totally worth it in the end!

Just say you dont like rides. I dont go on them at parks because I dont enjoy them.

You have a bad back and your chiropractor would kill you

I’d go with “I’m not super into roller coasters can we do x instead?” A M on my project was insisting to go go-karting in Nashville. I was also early on and able to deflect by saying “we’re in Nashville, if we’re doing any team activities we’re going to see love music"

Update for all: I couldn’t pretend to not be interested because 4-5 months back I was talking about how much we should go because I love roller coasters. I said I wasn’t feeling too well and then stuck with the person who was afraid of heights. It all worked out. Thanks

They’ll put the puzzle pieces together eventually 😉

Do we know if there is a sponsoring partner that oversees this benefit/ program that I could have more of a heart to heart conversation with?

However, anything related to IVF or medical procedures has to go through insurance (also limited to $50k lifetime benefit). Continued…
