Possible discrimination?

Name change as possible outing.

Since announcing I'm pregnant work have been considerably difficult. My pregnancy announcement was not met with enthusiasm. To date I have never had a problem at work, my capability has never been an issue and nobody has ever done anything but sang my praises about my work and attitude.

Since announcing my pregnancy I have had to attend two meetings about my 'attitude'. I have been told that I'm making things uncomfortable for others (completely untrue and when asked for examples nobody can give them). I have been removed from projects and told I can't go on training due to it been 'intense' (because I'm pregnant). I have been asked for doctors letters that are confidential but have provided them as I want to corporate and also had comments made (via text) about my doctors appointments etc.

I feel that they are using my 'attitude' to build a case against me to get rid of me and I'm not sure what to do.

Any advice? I'm at a loss and this is not what I need right now.

Yes it sounds like it could be pregnancy discrimination. Start gathering evidence - get as much as possible in writing. Maternity Action are good on this stuff.
