    Tell them its medical and leave it at that for now. I had all my bloods and scans early in the morning and just took the day off for egg collection. Even after spending a week in hospital due to ohss,no one was aware of my ivf journey....so it definitely is doable.

    They were trying to organise my maternity replacement the second I told them I was planning on doing IVF. Then with my second pregnancy another boss, who I hadn't even told I was pregnant, told someone else she heard I was.

    Moral of the story: don't trust anyone

    As a teacher on contract my advice would be not to tell. You will be able to get a medical certificate and just tell them thst you're having some treatment that you would rather not discuss. Hint, for a male boss just mention anything along the lines of women's issues, lady parts or gynecologist and they won't pry further.

    I know they are not meant to discriminate but when you're hoping to get a new contract next year, term 4 is pretty much like a 10 week interview where they will be working out if they want to keep you or not. Personally I'd prefer not to add any negatives into the mix if avoidable.

    Also, most contracts I've signed have a statement in the something like "there are no foreseeable reasons why I would not be able to see out the term of this contract" and I've always wondered how that works if you are pregnant. That would probably be one to contact the union about should you find yourself in that situation.

    Keep it to yourself! They don't need to know until you are pregnant and if things don't go great then you don't want to be disadvantaged for no reason (nor saying that things will go wrong, or that you necessarily would be disadvantaged)

    Having worked as a casual teacher.... I wouldn't tell them the reason. I'd say you've got medical appointments with specialists, get medical certificates if needed.
