Q&A: When to tell my boss I'm pregnant?

How and when should I tell my boss that I’m pregnant?

Re: How and when should I tell my boss that I’m pregnant?

The Bump Expert

There's no hard rule, but most women wait until the end of the first trimester (when miscarriage risk goes way down). But, you may want to do it sooner or later depending on your relationship with your boss and when you start to show. Better to break the news yourself than let someone else(or your growing belly!) do it for you. Try to break the news after you’ve completed an assignment -- this sends the message that your condition hasn’t impacted your productivity thus far, and that you have every intention of doing your job (and doing it well) for the remainder of your pregnancy.

Another smart move: Before you talk, put together a plan outlining how your duties will be covered during your leave. Your boss is much more likely to greet the news with enthusiasm if he knows you’ve got the situation covered.

I work at a library so it's hard doing research there when everyone knows me. It's a smaller library. So I have to be more covert in my research when I go there.

re: Q: When should I tell my boss?

I'm having the same problem. I am a contract employee and signed on in October, but I am just not completing my licensing, so my start date is in 2 weeks. I'm newly married just 3 weeks ago and we are shocked to find out we are having a honeymoon baby! I don't know how this will go with the new job... I only get 4 weeks paid vaca a year.

re: Q: When should I tell my boss?

I'm 5 weeks pregnant and I decided to tell my boss sooner rather than later so that my symptoms don't tell her for me. She was totally cool with it and congratulated me. Now I have the ease of mind that she knows and will be understanding if I suddenly come under the weather for some unknown reason.

re: Q: When should I tell my boss?

I am having my first ultrasound at 8 1/2 weeks (I am 7 now) and then we will tell family and friends. I think I can hold out until week 10 to tell my boss and coworkers, but it will be tough. A little nervous since my pregnancy will really impact a big project timeline, so I want to give plenty of notice to be fair. Can't wait to share the good news, though!

re: Q: When should I tell my boss?

i have the same problem as some of the other women here. I've only been at my new job for a month and it's a really small group. I'm really worried that people are just going to start noticing and I would rather tell them first. At the same time though I want them to know that I'm here, and I'm here to work, and really establish myself. I'm working through a temp agency right now and I asked for advice from them and they said to wait, but I forgot a few things the other day and a co-worker said "what are you pregnant or something?" and I'm not sure if I did a very good job at hiding my shock that she guessed it right on. Any advice?

re: Q: When should I tell my boss?

I have a very physical job and in order for me to continue working for the same company during my future pregnancy it seems as though I will need to let my boss know prior to conceiving(so I can be put in a more office like position). Am I over thinking this? Suggestions???

re: Q: When should I tell my boss?

I am somewhere between wk 7 and 10 (haven't confirmed with a doctor yet), and told my boss and the crew this past week. Everyone has been really supportive, and that certainly helps (especially when I have to take breaks due to nausea). Still figuring out if I'll be a SAHM, but either way, I know my boss appreciated me telling him sooner rather than later.

Q&A: When to tell my boss I'm pregnant?

I'm planning on telling my boss next week; I'll be 13 weeks. I am starting to show, so I want to tell him before everyone starts to wonder if I'm pregnant. I'm kind of nervous. I was just promoted to manager of my department, we work 60+ hours a week, and I work mostly with men (who never see their kids). I think he's going to feel like I shouldn't have accepted the promotion since I knew I was pregnant and will be taking time off. He would never say anything like that, but I'm afraid that's what he'll be thinking. However, I think it will be a relief to tell finally tell him. Wish me luck!

I work at a hisgh school and thankfully the teacher that iI work for is one of my best friends. She was excited because she too is trying to concieve. I also told the othe staff but I haven't told the big wigs yet like the principal and office staff. The good thing is I have until september to prepare myself. the only thing is that I'm going to show up close to 6 months pregnant!!

What if you just got hired for a new job and now just find you are pregnant?

nicberg555 |

Q&A: When to tell my boss I'm pregnant?

I was just hired for a new job, and had to tell my boss because I had to have an unexpected Doc appt that interfered with my work schedule. She took the news well, congratulated me, and then blurted it to the entire company. At first I was upset she did that, until she explained her reasoning : should I ever NEED "special" treatment, everyone will know why. It turns out I received WAY more support than I originally thought I would. And all the other women who have had kids are constantly making sure I'm feeling good (not in a smothering way), and then men never let me carry anything! I hope you all have as supportive a work environment as I do, and I encourage everyone to tell their bosses before their bodies do for them - it won't help if it looks like you are keeping secrets!

we're ttc right now, but i'm wondering when to let everyone i work with know. i'm a nurse on a busy med-surg floor and i do a lot of lifting and heavy labor at times. i don't want to take the risk of m/c by lifting, but i can't just stop without a valid reason. any suggestions?

Q&A: When to tell my boss I'm pregnant?

I told my manager this week (a few days before hitting 11 weeks). I had an u/s at 8 weeks and I felt comfortable telling him this week because we had seen the babies heartbeat. I was starting to show earlier this time (this is #2 for me) and people were wondering. So, there is no hard rule of thumb about when to tell -- although some people say tell at 12 weeks or more...

I'm 13 weeks along and started my new job right before I found out I was pregnant. I will tell my boss after Thanksgiving since my 90 day probation will be up. I'm not showing yet and didn't have horrible nausea so I've been able to hide it.

Q&A: When to tell my boss I'm pregnant?

My DH and I just had two tests return positive results over the weekend and are going to the ObGyn this week to confirm. If I'm doing the math right, I think we're about 8 wks along. We are both excited and ready. However, my SIL just informed me last Monday that she had a miscarriage and my direct supervisor at work has fertility issues and has been trying to conceive for over a year and is now on fertility drugs. We weren't actively trying or not trying to conceive, so I feel a tinge of guilt because it seems we are and these two other women are not. To top it off, I own my own business and plan to leave my current job before the baby is due, so maternity leave won't even be an issue. Of course I don't want them to know that! I want to tell both sets of parents that we are expecting, however, on the heels of my SIL m/c and my boss, whom isn't the warmest person anyway, what should I do?

Q&A: When to tell my boss I'm pregnant?

Q&A: When to tell my boss I'm pregnant? I decided to wait and keep it a secret from everybody except for two dear friends (and of course my honey) until I was 16 weeks along. We were waiting for the right time, and months before had just purchased a new home. I have a pretty good relationship with my boss, and I decided to announce the pregnancy at our housewarming party (with my boss being invited, of course). I felt that my boss's knowledge of my pregnancy shouldn't take precedence over anyone else's. We did indeed announce it at the party; it was a joyous occasion, and a great surprise for all. But unfortunately my boss, at the last minute, could not make it. So I had to tell her the next business day. When I saw her, I expressed to her that we missed her at the party and it was the event of the year, mainly because of the "good news". Then I told her, and she almost guessed it at the same time. She congratulated me and is excited about our first child, as we are almost two years newly married. I want to say that there is no "perfect" or "right" time to let your employer know. Just know that this is a time not to worry, not to stress, but to be extremely grateful for the gift that is inside you.

I am almost 8 weeks now, and I work with almost ALL men. I mean like ALL men, so I am really nervous about when and how to break the news to them. I have been in my position for nearly a year now, so I feel pretty secure, but its the potential awkwardness that is really making me nervous!!!

Q&A: When to tell my boss I'm pregnant?

My company has downsized a few times within the last 2 years due to the economy. In that time they have let 2 women who are pregnant go in their layoffs. Since we never know when layoffs are coming and I doubt the company wants to pay my maternity leave if they didnt want to pay anyone elses I am keeping my mouth shut until I am really showing or legally have to tell them (which varies from state to state)

cherieblonde |

Q&A: When to tell my boss I'm pregnant?

I told my supervisor around 8 weeks because I have a physically strenuous job (personal trainer). I can now legitimately avoid some potential hazards (like industrial strength cleaning chemicals and super heavy lifting) without people thinking I am just slacking. It totally depends on your job requirements and personal situation.

Q&A: When to tell my boss I'm pregnant?

I am 13 weeks today, and I've said nothing yet. My situation is perhaps a bit different, as an academic who has a 'boss' (division leader, department chair), but that relationship is looser than other superior/subordinate relationships. I haven't had to say anything yet because I'm not showing at all. I know the immediate group members will be very happy for me, but I'm up for promotion and am therefore hesitant for the news to spread all over the department to other people whose reaction I can't anticipate.

rbriggins |

Q&A: When to tell my boss I'm pregnant?

I'm in the same boat as soo many of you. I just started a new job 2 weeks ago and I am 13 weeks pregnant. I am so nervous to tell them. I think they are going to be mad at me for not telling them initially, but they probably wouldn't have hired me had they knew.

KaraRobinson |

Q&A: When to tell my boss I'm pregnant?

I started a new job when I was 12 weeks. I am now at 24 weeks and I have not told anyone yet. I am a field rep so I am not in a regular office. No one else can cover my territory so it would go uncovered in visiting clients when I take time off. I have been reluctant to tell my boss because of this. The company is expanding and field reps were a recent add-on. I know I have to tell soon as I am only few months from being due now. I have felt horrible hiding my pregnancy when I was recently visited by my manager and then her boss. I feel they will be upset about me not telling them sooner but I did not want to make them think that I would not be able to do my new job. They would probably not have hired me if I told them during the interview process. I plan to work until delivery or until doctor's orders not to. I am not entitled to full maternity leave so I was planning to take little time off. What is the minimal I should take off before returning to work?

Q&A: When to tell my boss I'm pregnant?

We're ttc but I know I'll have to tell my boss right away. I teach first grade and if I have lots of morning sickness or I'm going to the bathroom all the time they need to know I'm not just leaving a room full of six year olds alone for the heck of it! Also, if something were to happen they would have to find me a sub for a few days. That's what all the teachers do here, tell the principal right away and tell eveyone else when you are ready!

MrsK09 |

Q&A: When to tell my boss I'm pregnant?

I told my boss at 8wks as Ihe asked me to start booking my international business travel for the rest of the year. Since I did not want to travel during my pregnancy I told him. He was extremely appreciative that I told him early on and it gave him so much time to figure out other arrangements.

Q&A: When to tell my boss I'm pregnant?

When I got pregnant with my first child I had just started a new job. I had been there 1.5 weeks when I found out i was pregnant. I chose to wait as long as possible to tell my boss partly so that he would be less likely to do the math and figure out that I was pregnant when I started. My boss was great but he is a nice guy. He did ask if it was planned and I told the truth which was yes. But, you can always say that it was a surprise if you think it will make it easier for you. When I got pregnant the 2nd time, I had only been in my new job 2 months. My plan had been to wait as long as possible to tell my boss but I miscarried and had to tell him because I took some time off. However, when I got pregnant again 2 months later I waited until I was 8 weeks to tell him. Again, my new boss is very understanding and is very supportive of family. It really comes down to what your boss is like, what your relationship is with him/her and to a certain extent the type of job you have. Unless you are really sure that you would get a positive reaction, I say wait as long as possible.

kgemeacham |

Q&A: When to tell my boss I'm pregnant?

I haven't told anyone yet, only 5 weeks and coming off of a previous miscarriage. Although I am definitely waiting to tell everyone after I hear the heartbeat or around 12 weeks, I plan on telling my boss after my 1st dr. appt. She knows that I have been trying and about my miscarriage and I know she would be supportive once she found out I was pregnant again. It's just easier to be able to tell my boss that I have Dr's appointments then to try and make up excuses of why I am coming in late or leaving early.

dsobz |

Q&A: When to tell my boss I'm pregnant?

I told my boss I was pregnant at 6 weeks when I asked for an afternoon off for my first prenatal appointment. I did not work in a very family supportive environment. The Friday before my first prenatal appointment she hired someone else for my position. The Sunday before my first prenatal appointment she called me at my home on a non-working day and told me I did not have to come in that I was no longer employed there. My estimated due date is Nov. 6th. This is a no requested time off at the company I was working for. Between November and January you are not allowed to have any requested time off. So I think once she did the math she realized she had to act quick and fill my position rather than deal with maternity leave.

Tiffany1003 |

Q&A: When to tell my boss I'm pregnant?

SCORMIER |

Q&A: When to tell my boss I'm pregnant?

HOW did everyone tell their bosses? I'm not sure how to tell mine. Should I just ask for a couple of minutes to talk in private and then just bust out ''I just wanted to let you know I'm pregnant."? I'm in the same boat as many others that I just started a new job, this week actually. I've been working contract at a company for almost 4 years, and I just took a new role there; so not quite new to the company but new to the role and group.

J05Boiler |

Q&A: When to tell my boss I'm pregnant?

My best advice would be to tell when you are comfortable. I just told my boss. I have been here a year and 3 months, and it's a female who isn't much older than me, so I felt like she would be supportive, and she was. Although I am very early along, I told her b/c she already was curious why I was in late last week (had a doctor appt.) and then left early 2 days later (b/c I wasn't feeling well). I am only 5 weeks along so it's super early and I told her I wasn't comfortable with many people knowing yet, but I wanted to tell her b/c she will know if I ask to go home early or have appointments from time to time. She is very professional and I trust her. There is no legal obligation to tell your boss you are pregnant, but sooner or later, people will notice. Companies aren't supposed to fire women for being pregnant, but it happens anyway. If you are new to a job, I would consider waiting a few extra weeks and build up your good reputation with your company so they are more likely to hold your position for you while you're on leave. The FMLA laws differ depending on size of company and other factors, so they are not applicable to every single company.

Wife4ayear |

Q&A: When to tell my boss I'm pregnant?

I am shocked by a couple of the responses! I can't believe that an employer would be so ballsy as to fire a pregnant employee - that's a labour board complaint/lawsuit just waiting to happen. I haven't told my boss yet, but I'm only 5 weeks and just had a week of holidays. I'm going to see how I'm feeling and how things go before I decide when to tell him. I guess it's possible my shifts could be reduced or something, although I like to have faith in my employer and trust that they wouldn't do that to me or any of our other staff!

Q&A: When to tell my boss I'm pregnant?

I'm 11 wks tomo, but I'm waiting as long as possible before I say anything. Im a manager in retail and, with it being summer in a college town, there's no shortage of hopeful applicants. My boss is forty something, and divorced with two kids that he never sees, so I'm not hopeful he'll be very understanding. I'm part time now, so i wont qualify for FMLA, nor am I eligible for vacation or sick time, so I will probably just end up having to quit shortly before I'm due. Also, Texas is a right-to-fire state, so they dont have to tell you why they're firing you. Yeah, definately hiding it as long as possible...

Q&A: When to tell my boss I'm pregnant?

I'm 5 weeks pregnant and have been unemployed for a little while now. I've been looking for a job in my field (accounting) but am worried about getting hired if its known that I'm pregnant. I could keep it a secret, but they're pretty concerned with ethics, and my due date is February 24th - right in the middle of the busiest time while we're gearing up for tax time. We could really use the extra money and hours for maternity leave. What do you recommend?

Littleone23ca |

Q&A: When to tell my boss I'm pregnant?

Most recomendations I have seen have said around the 3rd month or just into the 2nd trimester when risk for miscarriage and other complications is greatly reduced. Personally, I told my boss earlier because I had numerous Dr. appointments/tests that were done early on because of a slight scare. I didn't want my boss to question my loyalty to the company and wanted to assure her that these were needed Dr. appointments, but that I am very serious about my career. It depends on your individual situation, but unless appointments, or work hazzards prevent you from doing your job to your fullest, it would be best to wait until after the first trimester. Pregnancy makes employers uneasy because they doubt if their employee will want to continue in their position.

When should my husband tell his boss that we are expecting. I keep asking, and he keeps telling me that it is none of his boss' business. But I think they are going to wonder why he doesn't show up for work when the baby is born.

Q&A: When to tell my boss I'm pregnant?

We are going to wait until after our first trimester tests come back positive. We miscarried at 9 weeks before and I AM SO glad I didn't have to tell everyone at work about it- it was really emotional for me. The tests this time around are at 12.5 weeks, so they will know at 13 weeks. I am starting to show though (10 wks now), so it's going to be hard.

Crazy4Him108 |

Q&A: When to tell my boss I'm pregnant?

I just told my boss last night. I am 11.5 weeks. I work in an education department (though not a school) with ALL women, and have been there just exactly a year. She was excited and supportive as I figured she would be. I did prepare by thinking about projects that will come up just around when I am due and how I can prepare them ahead of time - reasurred her that I am indeed returning to work after maternity leave, etc. I am lucky to work in a place where they support pregnant women and the HR dept. has ALL the materials and answers you could want ready to hand you. My advice for some people who mentioned they are nervous about telling - you can have a confidential appt. with your HR person and find out what your rights are and what the company provides, offer,s, etc - what the state govt may offer and just what your legal rights are. I am pretty sure it's not legal to lay someone off or fire them for being pregnant - There may, however, be rules about how long you must be with a company before they offer maternity leave - or paid leave. But I believe in CA, there is PDL (Pregnancy Disability Leave (which also covers things like missing days for appts or morning sickness) before the birth - you need a dr. signature on the paperwork, but I believe it protects your job - in other words - you submit this form through HR which your manager also signs - once you tell your job, and then they can't take your job away, or use the time you might need off against you. the pay may have to b your sick days or annual leave, but it is more about job protection. Again - please do your own research - this is just my initial understanding from my own research and meeting with my HR dept. t least if you o through all the right venues you have a bit more info behind you when you do talk to your boss, especially if they are not so thrilled (I hope they will be though! Good luck!)

Q&A: When to tell my boss I'm pregnant?

I told my boss after a week. I found out that the job was a lot more high stress than the contract stated. They expected 60+ hours of work from everyone every week (people were doing 7 day weeks, all nighters just weeks before). I started spotting and cramping so I called my doctor and he said he would write me a note in a month or two (!!) I told them the next day that I would like to continue doing my job but that I was pregnant and I need to see a doctor as well as have time to take care of my health after work hours and they didn't like the fact I wouldn't be available at all times and let me go saying they decided the night before that I didn't fit in. Even though the night before they assigned me tasks to do next week and even that morning they had assigned me tasks for the following week! I need the money for the baby's sake, but I need my health to even have the baby. It really told me a lot about the company, I was prepared to work with them long term up until the baby was due and asap after, but obviously their whole "we are on big family" is bull.

Q&A: When to tell my boss I'm pregnant?

Your expert answer misses one major factor that should affect when you say something: physically strenuous or dangerous jobs that you can't "have every intention of doing for the remainder of your pregnancy." I am a law enforcement officer and aside from the danger involved in my job and the physical activity, my uniform is not going to fit too much longer. I guess I'll just have to ask my doctor about these issues since you seem to think all women work desk jobs.

Q&A: When to tell my boss I'm pregnant?

I'm 13 wks and I don't plan on telling my current employer. I'm waiting to hear my start date for my new job. (When I interviewed, I took a home test which was positive and was waiting for the official word from the doc.) I likely won't start the new job until wk 17. The good thing is that at the end of the interview - after I was offered & accepted the job - my new boss told me he's very family friendly. I'm not showing now, but I'm certain by the time I start the new job, I'll be showing.

BoxerMomma24 |

Q&A: When to tell my boss I'm pregnant?

I'm having a hard time decided when to tell my managers. I am 7 weeks pregnant, and dealing with extreme fatigue, round ligament pain, etc. The problem is that my job is somewhat physical. I am a news reporter for a local TV station, and my job often requires me to be out in the field for hours at a time, often with no food or access to restrooms. It's also a high stress environment, and requires being in dangerous situations (stand-offs, robberies, bad neighborhoods). What I'm most worried about right now is all of our weather coverage, which requires me to stand out in mass quantities of snow and windchills near or below zero! I'm worried that this type of physical demand will wear on me and perhaps even jeopardize my pregnancy, being that I'm still in my first trimester. Any suggestions?

I feel bad because I was hired 7 months ago and I told them it wasn't planned but it kinda was. They were very supportive and congratulated me. I am still worried. I started off by saying I had something to tell them and then just blurted out that I was pregnant and 11 weeks along. I am using a hospital down the street so I will work up until my due date. We are a small company so I know I only get 8 weeks and I told them that I will be back in time to finish all my major projects before the end of the year.

I can't decide when to tell my bosses, I work at a very family friendly firm, so I'm not worried that they won't be happy for me, but I'm concerned because I am waiting to find out if I will be receiving a raise (corporate makes the final decision) and I'm not sure if a baby on the way will have any effect. I'm 9 weeks right now, and starting to show. Should I tell them now or wait till my next ultrasound at 11 weeks, I'm just afraid I'll be showing alot by then.

Q&A: When to tell my boss I'm pregnant?

I'm 12 weeks pregnant and really did not want to go public with the news until after my first trimester. I told my bosses before I told everyone else but they already want to meet with me about the plan for maternity leave which is months away! What if I am not ready to talk about it. Rules state that I don't have to give them much notice but I am feeling pressured into making decision already... about when I will leave and what my role will be when I come back. They are already planning for a replacement for me. Is that right?!

Q&A: When to tell my boss I'm pregnant?

I'm 15 weeks and I've been having bad dreams about telling my boss. He's a very nice guy that just got married and we even discussed what would happen if I got pregnant when I was working last year and he was cool as a cucumber. I'm able to hide under bulky coats now, but when the weather gets warmer I won't be able to hide. I just want to prove that I can still do my job so when I tell him he'll see that I haven't changed (until 3rd trimester when I won't be lifting 40 lb trees anymore lol). I probably shouldn't have any worries, but then again, life is all about dealing with change, so whatever happens I should just get used to it :)

Q&A: When to tell my boss I'm pregnant?

My boss knew before my husband! I took two home tests on Sunday that were positive, called the dr on Monday and they wanted blood work on Monday, Wednesday with my first prenatal on Thursday. Looong story short, when I told boss I had some dr apts, he asked if I was ok and I blurted!

Q&A: When to tell my boss I'm pregnant?

I told my Principal as soon as I found out I was pregnant. She was genuinely excited, so I know she won't have a problem with me being out for doctor's appointments every month. Being a Texas teacher, I am allowed 6 weeks for paid Maternity Leave. :)

Q&A: When to tell my boss I'm pregnant?

I am waiting until the school year ends to tell my principle since my contract is kind of at stake. I will be 13 weeks. I have been part-time for two years and I really need to be full-time next year so we have the finances.

Q&A: When to tell my boss I'm pregnant?

I just started a job a month ago as well, I found out a week after I accepted the job that I was pregnant. I'm 13 weeks, and my probation period is up in 5 more months...so obviously I can't wait until then to inform them...besides that they'd probably figure it out. So far I have a good rapport with everyone, but seeing as before I got this job I had been laid off for 14 months, I am apprehensive to give them any reason to give me the boot. Not sure when I should tell them. I don't have any foreseeable milestones in the near future, but I have been given positive feedback.

Q&A: When to tell my boss I'm pregnant?

I work from home so I don't see any of my co-workers in person! I am planning on holding off until I am well into my second trimester. That will give me time to get my projects in order and scope out what my work would be like while I am on leave and allows me to come up with a plan for coverage. The only downside is that some of the people I work with are friends. I rarely see them in person, but I will have to delay sharing the news with them until after I tell my boss. The last thing I want is him to hear it through the office grapevine.

Q&A: When to tell my boss I'm pregnant?

I've been thinking about this also. I feel like it is so ridiculous that we (women) have to essentially "worry" about such a thing and how it may affect our careers. I too work in a male dominated field. I recently went up for promotion and the results have not come back yet so I'm trying to wait it out before saying anything. I would like to give my supervisor as much advance notice as possible , however I have to look out for my best interest first. Clearly to get a promotion would be in my best interest and I should not feel the least bit bad about that!! Because we should not have to worry about being "pregnant" affecting our careers in the first place!!! So they'll just have to wait until I can't hide it any longer!!!

Q&A: When to tell my boss I'm pregnant?

Personally I am waiting until well past 17 weeks. At that point I will have had over 6 months employment & If my employer wants to let me go at that point, at least I can be on unemployment. My office has less than 8 employees, and has no protection rights. There really is no way of knowing what an employer will do-- but to play it safe for you and your family, and protect yourself as much as possible.

Q&A: When to tell my boss I'm pregnant?

So I accepted a new job a month ago but don't start until June 29 and my benefits start July 1. I just found out I am 6 weeks pregnant. Have not been to MD yet. Can I call my HR person and ask to speak to her in confidence about what is/isnt covered if I'm already pregnant? I'm worried about them then saying they don't need me to start or something. Or should I just not go to MD (if I don't have problems) until after July 1 and go from there?

Q&A: When to tell my boss I'm pregnant?

I'm 11 weeks and I'm planning on telling my boss at 12 weeks. I am showing, but under my uniform, I just look like I've put on some weight. I work for an independent contractor who is leesed to a delivery company. We have a 150lb weight limit on the packages, which my doc isn't concerned about, as long as I don't over do it. I have no way of researching maternity policies, as there are none. I cannot find any laws regarding my rights. I'm kinda freaked out about telling him, because my job is so demanding. I'm not sure how to tell him. I would have to call him because there is no time away from others in the mornigs to talk to him. This job does not provide vacation, sick leave, benefits, etc. It is very frowned upon to take a day off, even for a funeral. I have been able to schedule my appts during my day without his knowledge thus far. There is nobody to do my job when I will be on leave, he will have to find someone and train them. I am pretty sure he is not going to be too happy. Any advice?

Q&A: When to tell my boss I'm pregnant?

I'm starting my new job tomorrow and I am already 9 weeks pregnant. I'm only part-time so no benefits, vacation, etc. I'm not sure when to tell my boss; I new I was pregnant when I interviewed for it but, like others on here, I didn't think I'd be hired if I said anything. Is there any good time to do it? Most of these posts are old enough that posters must have already gone through this. How can you assure your boss that your pregnancy won't affect your work?

Q&A: When to tell my boss I'm pregnant?

In response to whoknowswhat: I completely agree! I am 14 weeks and thinking about applying for another position (it would be a promotion) in my workplace. I'm hesitant to tell my potential new supervisor who is a man, even though I work in a hospital where females outnumber males. I am not showing yet and plan to wait as long as possible- hopefully after the job gets posted and I get hired. It's so stressful!

Q&A: When to tell my boss I'm pregnant?

I work outside of our headquarters and rarely see my boss.I do not have the best relationship with my direct report. However, I do have a great relationship with his direct report. At any rate, I sent him an email announcing my pregnancy with an outline how my job will be taken care of if my absense. He did not respond and to add further insult to injury, he responded to every other email that was sent after my pregnancy announcement. My HR department is aware that I am going to out on maternity leave but I just can get over the fact that my direct report ignored my email. Oh yeah, did I mention that his wife is pregnant too!

Q&A: When to tell my boss I'm pregnant?

I am so worried about how to handle this as I'm looking for a new job. I've been searching for the last 6 months, and I am currently 13wks pregnant as I'm interviewing. I'm not showing, and as I was overweight already, it may be a little while before the bump actually shows. I see that several of you were in the same boat - starting new jobs and not sure how to tell them or when. I can only hope that I start a new job, knock their socks off quickly, and prove that I'll be an asset to the company when I return after maternity leave.

Q&A: When to tell my boss I'm pregnant?

I am 8 weeks and a crime scene tech for my local PD and I wear a uniform (same as the cops). Our officers have a pregnancy policy in place but the CSI's do not. My boss and I both have NO idea what is going to happen with me, when I will be off the streets, ect. I really wish I knew so that I could plan. I had to tell my boss as soon as I found out because we work with quite a few dangerous chemicals and in some bad situations. (not to mention the fact that my new found sense of smell and horrible morning sickness are complicating my ability to process crime scenes....)

I'm 19 weeks and just started my job 2 months ago. I have one month left for my porbation period to be over. I'm not sure if I should tell them now or later. I know during the probation period they can let me go for any reason, and just say it didn't work out. So I'm a little nervous. It's kind of stressing me out.

This will definitely be interesting. I've been gunning for a promotion for the last two months and have just found out that we are pregnant - we're only 5 weeks along so I don't have to worry about showing just yet. I'm hoping to wait until at least until Thanksgiving before letting the cat out of the bag, but I also hope that I have an offer letter to sign before then as well. Here goes!

Q&A: When to tell my boss I'm pregnant?

I teach college as an adjunct so I don't have any benefits. I found out I was pregnant in April (only one month before the semester ends) so I decided to not say anything until late September. I was six months along and am basically all baby so I figured I had to tell her. Plus, even though I am due while winter break is on the semester begins a few weeks after my due date. She was very understanding but had to check with the higher ups about what to do with my teaching schedule since they never had to deal with this before. In the end I'm probably only getting about 3-4 weeks off but we gotta pay the bills. They were as lenient as they could be and really tried hard to work things out for me so I was appreciative.

Q&A: When to tell my boss I'm pregnant?

Currently at week 5. I'm planning to tell my boss around week 12-14, basically once we clear the first trimester. I want to give my team enough time to plan for my maternity leave, but I'm also concerned how they'll take the time off since: a.) I've only been with the company for 6 months, b.) got engaged right after I interviewed and was hired, c.) now I'll need time off to get married, d.) need time off for prenatal visits, and ultimately maternity leave, e.) none of my department supervisors (all women) are married or have children. If all goes well, I'd like to work up until my due date in the fall, but I'm very concerned with how receptive they'll be to needing all this time off. I don't want them to think that I'm disloyal to the company and will not return after maternity leave. As a company they seem pretty progressive as we have a separate nursing/pumping room, and gyms on-site. I agree with an earlier poster, it is such a shame that we can't just enjoy the pregnancy, but have to worry about who and when to tell.

Q&A: When to tell my boss I'm pregnant?

I need a lot of help with this. My boss and I aren't on the best of terms and I've had another employee creating a hostile work environment. So bad that I've had to go to our HR, my boss didn't like that and all these nit-picky things have come up and my boss is trying to threaten my job. It's been better recently but I'm worried this will give them motivation to find whatever they can. Which isn't much but he certainly has a way to twist things! I'm only 6 weeks so I'm okay with the first trimester but I worry about the other employee, we work a lot together and she LOVES to spin things!

I already feel his kicks and movement :) Anyways, I just started my job 2 months ago and I havent told them that I am pregnant. We are a very small company and I am so nervous of being let go. I need this job! And I actually really enjoy it, plus is great money!! I keep setting dates to spill the beans but I never follow through. I have no idea how or when to tell. This type of stuff makes me SUPER NERVOUS! I knew I was pregnant before I got the job but I didnt want to risk not being hired. I hope ive proved my ability and dedication to the position so that by the time I do tell they wont want to replace me. Ahh, such a stressful situation! And I hope they are just as happy and very supportive.

Q&A: When to tell my boss I'm pregnant?

I'm actually waiting until my ultrasound at the beginning of my 12th week. A few of my co-workers already know just through guessing, but I wanted to make sure it is an absolute positive before I break it to the big man! I have been working here since February, but through a temp agency, so I have been hoping they would buy out my contract before I broke the news to them. I am definitely capable of doing my job for as long as my doctor will let me, and I just don't want them to think any less of me after hearing the news. We'll see though I guess, whatever happens happens, and I can't worry much about it with a little one on the way regardless!

Q&A: When to tell my boss I'm pregnant?

What if I'm just now 11 weeks and I start a new job in 2 weeks. I have yet to tell them for two reasons: 1- I was hired a month ago and it was too early to tell many people still, 2- I was afraid I would not get the job if I told them. I know it's illegal to do that, but could have just used other reasons. I plan on telling them very soon but want to prove myself as well. Any advice??

Q&A: When to tell my boss I'm pregnant?

I am 7 weeks and just told my boss. I was just offered a slightly different position within my company (which I have been wanting for a few years!) right before I found out I was pregnant. I decided it would not be a good time to start something new, as I am not sure I will be returning to work after the birth. My boss was shocked when I said I would not be taking the new job, because she knew I had been waiting for it since I was hired, so I explained everything. She is very supportive and excited for me!

I told my boss right away. I got my BFP on a Friday, and told my boss the following Monday at 5 weeks! My job is high stress, and I typically work 50-60 hours a week, with lots of late nights and weekends. I am so glad I told, because they immediately started making other arrangements so that I don't have to work as much while I am so tired. Also, it was common for me to miss lunch/dinner before, now I don't have to worry about getting a break for meals!

We are all like family at my job, so they knew almost immediately after my actual family did. We're at a small resort in the Keys, so now during the slow season alot of us have been doing double-duty. Today I told my boss that I could no longer work housekeeping and he actually asked me why, and then had the audacity to say "How do I know you're actually pregnant and aren't just making all this up?" I'm currently livid and am contemplating finding another job, but I'm going to give my hormones a chance to calm down before picking up my purse and water bottle and just walking out the door.

I am seven weeks along and will need to tell my boss this week. My job is very physical and I lift heavy things all day long.

They're very understanding about it at my job and I hope everything goes well.

I told my boss as soon as the doctor confirmed my pregnancy. I did it because I am considered a high-risk pregnancy, and I have several appointments coming up soon, so I had to tell the boss something. This way, boss knows that my assignments will get done--just at odd times of the day/night.

This is so great to read because like a lot of you I too haven't been at my job for too long before realizing I'm pregnant. It's funny how so many of us are worried about telling our boss, and reading this made me realize I'm not alone. Most people I know said expect about a year to get pregnant, so when it happened right after I went off the pill I was surprised. At the same time it is a blessing, and at the end of the day everything will work out. If our employers can't understand and are upset that is their problem. They can't terminate us for being pregnant. I was hoping to be considered for a promotion around the time I go out on maternity leave, so maybe it just isn't meant to be...

Q&A: When to tell my boss I'm pregnant?

@Mrs.BWG--that's discrimination! DON'T let them push you out the door, you have rights! I work as a secretary thru a temp agency, and while the agency wasn't very warm about me telling them ,(i wasn't sure if i had to or not, so i just did), my employer was/is fully supportive. She's an accountant and I will be out of work after 4/15 due to the ending tax season. I'm freaked a little about how i will go about this, as financial support is imperative. The temp agency said they'd be helping me find another position ,but somehow, they magically haven't found anything. being constrained to a desk job is challenging enough for me, let alone having to find another job at what will be 15 weeks by then. Best of luck, to all of us..

I called HR today and was told that with my due date I don't need to tell until October. I'm pretty sure I'll tell her the first week back at school, but it is good to know I don't have to e-mail her in the middle of the summer.

Q&A: When to tell my boss I'm pregnant?

I am 12 weeks today and will tell my boss tomorrow. I have already told my immediate superior as he handles PTO and has been more understanding with fluctuating prenatal appointment times. I have recently been promoted as well as given a increase to my earnings, though it has not come into effect yet due to internal auditing this month. I am nervous about sharing my news because even though I have assumed all the new responsibilities in this role, on paper I am still at my original position. I was worried that they would retract the original offering knowing that I will take a leave in 6 months. I just spoke with my immediate superior and he assured me that if that were to happen, he would be able to legally vouch for it and that the company otherwise would face a hefty lawsuit. He then directed me to this site that I found helpful that I wanted to share here.

The only slight problem is that the time that i will be on maternity leave is the busiest budget period of the year for us and i wont be there and new boss not that approachable. I am dreading it but will have to do it. I am excited and sometimes life happens and you cant choose exactly when you fall pregnant.

Q&A: When to tell my boss I'm pregnant?

I'm not so sure how or when to tell my boss about my pregnancy. I recently just got hired and started just before christmas. She hired me with the hope that I would take on the tasks of someone that is leaving for a new career. So i am very nervous about telling her. I am 18 weeks and a little bit bigger of a woman so I am not showing yet. I would like to hold off until the other employee officially leaves for her new position, how ever she is interviewing other ppl for my part time position. I'm just nervous and can't afford to lose this job. I'm also terrified that i won't be taken back after maternity leave.

I travel 100% for my job and am on multiple planes a week. When I told my Doctor, she said I had to not end, but reduce the amount of time I spend traveling through the first 10 weeks.

gilly248 |

Q&A: When to tell my boss I'm pregnant?

I'm five weeks along, and I'm thinking of telling my boss next week. I'm just starting to feel exhausted and somewhat queasy at times, which is why I think at least my manager should know, even if my co-workers don't know until the 2nd trimester. Also - I have two appts with the nurse and OBGYN back to back in the next 2-3 weeks. I work at a company who hired me through a temp agency and my term was to be up this month. My boss informed me last week that they are either going to extend my term a bit or consider options for a permanent position. However, work has been really slow the past two months, so I'm skeptical about what to do. Ideally, I would like to work through my third trimester, and then think about how my working situation post-baby. Any suggestions on when to break the news to my boss?

Many colleagues told me he won`t like it and I was afraid to tell him, but he was so happy for me and assure me he will help me with the paperwork.
