You see your boss coming towards you and you quickly change your computer screen. Why? Because you have been visiting fertility websites for the last hour.
If you have an office with a door, you may feel confident to browse fertility sites but those open cubicles could lead to trouble. You are baby-obsessed which means that your morning typically starts out with a (decaf) coffee, a quick glance at your work email, a hello to your infertile Twitter friends and a google of your latest pregnancy symptom.
“Just working on that presentation.” You quickly lie to your boss.
Just remember that your company probably owns your computer and has the ability to monitor your work. So at least spice up your searches, and have human resources believe that it’s actually work related. Google words like “fertile presentation,” “pregnancy Excel report” or “cervical fluid office supplies.” It will be much easier to explain yourself later on. You would rather have your boss think you were searching pornography sites than have to explain to HR why you were looking at irarelyovulate.com. When your company starts banning certain fertility sites, you know they are on to you.
For anyone who has a home office, good luck to you!
