Then I announced my pregnancy to my boss, who responded: "Shit."
Then he congratulated me, & proceeded to take away all my important projects. I cut my maternity leave short to prove my value & dedication. I wish now I hadn't. I ended up quitting after becoming so marginalized and obsolete that I literally had nothing to do.
My milk supply tanked & precious time with my newborn was lost. Warned every woman at work not to make the same mistake with their leaves.
