I have pregnancy test with a health care centre a week ago. The person I told about my pregnancy so far is my bf. I have trouble figuring out when to inform my boss as well as my mom about this....

You don't say how old you are, but if you have a job I'm guessing you are over 16, maybe over 18. In my opinion your mom deserves to know pretty soon, especially if you are living at home and depending on her for a roof over your head (and that of the baby). Everyone else can wait until the end of the first trimester. There's no point in telling the world until you are sure you are going to carry to term.

Yee, I rethought my answer last night. You probably need to inform those you are working with if your pregnancy symptoms interfere with your work performance.

12 weeks is the safe time to tell everyone. The first 12 wks is the largest window when miscarrying occurs. I am an Human Resouces Representative for a Company and you have no responsibility to tell your supervisor that you are pregnant until you have to take time off for maternity leave. Prior to that, if you go to the doctor you don't have to give your supervisor the reason why you are going to the doctor. The law is called HIPPA which covers all this. Good luck.

I misstated, It is not called hippa. HIppa is the privacy protection act.
