So I'm 8 weeks pregnant today, but last Thursday at my appointment I mentioned to my doctor that I had some spotting that just started. Knowing my history (MC in feb) she examined me and said I should go on bed rest until I didn't bleed for 2 days. Instantly I was upset, thinking the worst and also thinking oh great I'm going to have to tell my boss. I was hoping to wait til at least 12 weeks.
Given how upset I was I couldn't call him so I sent him an email explaining my situation and how this isn't my first pregnancy so I'm taking all the steps to prevent it from happening again. He responded and it was very heartfelt and I thought, wow that's a great response. So I thought all was good with that. Worked from home on Friday with no problem.
Weekend went by and my spotting stopped so I am back to work and hopeful everything is fine (will know at US and appt on Thursday).
Come to find out today that my boss, the owner of the company I work for, announced my situation, including that I had a previous miscarriage to the leadership team in a meeting on Friday morning to let them know that we may have limited capacity with marketing activities for awhile if I need more time off. Meanwhile I told him in my email that I would WFH and was hopeful I could return to the office on Monday.
WTF!!! That is personal medical information about an employee. I was so mad, crying and shaking for an hour. I feel so disrespected and I can't believe he would do that. It's one thing to say that I'm dealing with personal issues but another to go into detail and say I'm pregnant, and had a miscarriage before. I'm so so mad at this point all I want to do is walk out. My family doesn't even know and for him to tell other people without my permission is morally wrong.
Please tell me I'm right on this one!!
