I'm 26 years old and about 10 weeks pregnant with my first child. I am not married (nor planning to be), but I am in a long-term relationship with an amazing man. Last year, we bought our own home, and we are financially secure. Even though this was not a planned pregnancy, I am very excited (despite the morning sickness . However, there is some tension regarding the situation with my principal. I work in a rural, Southern public school, and my principal is very religious and conservative. I recently told her I was pregnant because I wanted to explain why I've been sick so much. While she did not *say* anything negative, she seemed annoyed or disappointed when I told her. Her response was basically, "okay-- hope you feel better." I understand why she would be somewhat upset about it, considering her beliefs and the fact that I teach teenagers. However, I do not feel like I am a "bad influence" by any means. I have already made the decision to not even discuss it with my kids at all. I am sure many of them don't even know if I am married or not. So anyway, how should I handle this? I have felt very awkward around her since telling her...like I am being judged so harshly. All of my co-workers that I have told have been extremely supportive. Her reaction is just worrisome, especially since I am not up for tenure until next school year.
