She Forgot I'm Pregnant.

My boss isn't mean or cruel. She's just clueless. She's well meaning, just completely oblivious and unaware. Now, I'm pregnant, and I told her I was pregnant when I was 12 weeks, to prepare her for maternity leave. I didn't start showing until I was about 19 weeks, and it still looked is-she-pregnant-or-fat, and my belly has been slowly growing.

Hurricane Isaac displaced us for a while, and it took a bit of time to get back into New Orleans. It took a bit more time to get the gallery back in order before we can open it back up again. Most of the repairs have been completed, and we're going to reopen in a few days, so we're back at work, taking inventories and resetting all the exhibits, etc. Now I'm 24 weeks pregnant, and I have a noticeable baby bump. I put on a maternity dress and went to work on Monday, and this is what I hear:

"Oh my god, Olive! You're pregnant!"

I know the hurricane was exciting, but you've known for 11weeks about my pregnancy, and my bump didn't blow up over the past few weeks..
