    We had a seminar after work today which I went to. I was originally not going to go because there is always plenty of free alcohol there and I didn't want to raise anyone's suspicions to the fact that I'm pregnant so I said to my boss that I wasn't going to go because I'm trying to give up smoking (which I already have!) and if I'm drinking, it's going to make me want to smoke, blah blah blah. Anyway, the head of our department said if I went, I'd get paid overtime for it so I decided to go. Luckily my friend in my department does know I'm pregnant because I had to tell her because she would have guessed with me not smoking and drinking etc, etc.

    So anyway, at the end of the seminar, we were all drinking in the foyer. I had a glass of wine in my hand but my friend kept topping her glass up with mine or swapping glasses so it looked like I was drinking. All in all, I had about 2 mouthfuls of wine. Then my boss came over and said "Oh thank god for that" and I said "What?" and then he said "You're not pregnant then". So I obviously covered well. It doesn't bother me him basically saying "thank god you're not pregnant" because I know he doesn't mean it and he is just talking from a work point of view as in who will do his work when I'm on maternity leave!

    Then to cover my tracks entirely, I said to my friend "I'm gonna go now, shall we go outside and have a fag first" so she had one and then I went home!

    Now I just have to keep this up for another 2 months before I can tell everyone and relax a little. Also a good job my friend does know I'm pregnant, I went to eat a prawn and she just whispered to me "Don't eat that!" and then I just thought oh god yeah, I've got to remember that there's certain things I can't eat.

    Anyway, just thought I'd share this with you.

    I know. It was superb. And I just feel really proud of myself. I just went to the pub at lunch with 2 of the girls (who know) and had orange. It was fine. Obviously not as fun as when I'm having a drink but I have something much better in my tummy than wine!
