I bet people will be more welcoming than you expect. Although you are not married, you have been together for a long time. Nowadays there are many different ways to be a couple and it is more accepted than it used to be. I am 27yo and just got married 3 months ago to a man that I've been with for 9 years. We have a 1 yo and 3 yo together. I work as a nurse with an elderly population. My coworkers and my patients were all very very accepting and excited for me both times I was pregnant. Everybody loves a pregnant woman (believe it or not.) People seem to be extra nice. Even random strangers are nicer. I wish you luck with sharing your news at your work.

You just need to remember that it is not anyone's place to judge! Your children have 2 loving parents who are both involved in the childrens' lives (something that not everyone has), and that is what really matters. If they are going to waste time judging you, then that is their problem. Regardless, they should be supportive and happy for you!



A girl I worked with accidentally let it slip to my boss. But I still went into her office and told her myself. It was awkward and I could tell she had thoughts of her own, but I made sure to convey a positive attitude. Be sure to ask about your maternity leave if applicable.
