The things we tell ourselves when waiting...

So now I wait. July 3rd will be 14 dpo and that's when I should know how this cycle went. But in the meantime I'm applying for a new teaching position in a great district. I inteviewed on Tuesday and they checked my references yesterday. I was told there are two canditates who stood out and their deciding between the two of us.
I wonder, maybe I didn't get pregnant in other months becuase I would have had to disclose my pregnancy and maybe then they wouldn't have hired me (not because of prejudice, but if you're looking at two candidates and one needs 6-8 weeks off right away, who would you choose?). So now I think, AWESEOME! If I get pregnant this month it will be after I find out about the job, so that won't be weird.
But let me ask you guys, at what point am I obligated to mention a pregnancy? I'm not so optimistic as to believe that after 2 years this is the magic month, but I sure do hope this is the case. Would I have to tell the new district soon?
So I'm telling myself that if I get this job, then it will be the magic month becuase it wasn't any earlier so I didn't battle with explaining it. If I don't get the job, then I can tell myself, well, maybe I'm pregnant and things will just be easier if I stay where I'm at for another year.

July 3rd, where are you!?

I think you're not legally obligated to tell them for awhile, but most people I know tell in between 3-5 months.

The other Courtney has a great list of things to do during the 2ww... you could check out some things to distract you till July 3. I'll be there with you!!

It's funny, every month I think of things I would have been doing/not doing if I had gotten pregnant. For instance, I was worried about the start of our ttc because if we got pregnant right away it would mess up ski season. Now... I just want to be pregnant. Period. I don't care what time of year or when. Good luck with the job!!
