Anyone Else Afraid To Break The News At Work

a - September 13

I am twelve weeks pregnant and I think I should probably be thinking about informing my boss that I am expecting a baby (and that I won't be working for him for much longer). I don't know why, but I am so nervous to tell! I guess I'm worried that suddenly I will be treated badly because he knows I will be leaving (I don't plan on returning to work after my maternity leave.) Any advice or encouragement?

First of all Congratulations.! Now is a good time to tell your boss because you will start to show soon. In my opinion I think he will be pleased for you and grateful that even though you do not plan to return to work you are telling him now. Most employers do not get 5 or 6 months notice to find someone new. Now they have time to prepare and find someone to fill your shoes and even have you train them. Since you are not leaving for another "job" I don't believe they will treat you differently. I say go for it.
