I just have to take you to task on your comment:

Sheesh! I'm pregnant, not disabled! (*Absolutely no offense intended to
disabled people!*)

You can't make a blanket statement like that and then expect people to
accept it as OK simply because you place a contradictory apology after it.
You are doing just as much damage to disabled folks as someone who would
make the same statement without the disclaimer apology. And you are
perpetuating the belief that disabled folks can't work, or work
consistently. We may need some different considerations but our disabilities
in no way impair the quality of our work.

Of course I take offense at your comment. It is offensive and blatantly so.
