You seem to want her to both continue the pregnancy AND not let anyone know about it. You can't do both. Nor should she be giving up her *8th grade* education for 6 months just to keep anyone from seeing her belly grow. She needs to pay attention as much as she can now, before new baby sleep deprivation destroys her ability to learn any more.

There's a time and place for everything. If she wants to show her friends her ultrasound, that's fine, in it's place. In the middle of class, when students are supposed to be paying attention to the instructor is not the time or place.

I'm sure this young lady is getting a lot of attention from her friends. She may have been hoping to get a little more attention from the substitute teacher and was upset about getting called out in class instead of being congratulated.

She should save the pics for before school, lunchtime, and after school. I think the teacher was well within her rights to call her on it as being disruptive and the soon to be mom was out of line for trying to argue it.
