When To Tell Your Boss That You Re Pregnant

2 Replies
Susan H - July 26

I've got a great position at work. Waiting a few more months before getting pregnant would have been ideal, but here we are! I'm worried that I won't get that promotion coming up if my boss thinks I'm going to leave the company (which I might). I'm only four weeks right now, and still skinny as a rail, so my plan is to wait until it's way obvious. What are you guys out there doing?

I am in that same predicament. I started a new job at 12 weeks pregnant, and didn't tell them before I started. About a week after I started, I brought it up that I think I might be pregnant, and then confirmed it a few days later. Everything was okay after that. Good luck!

legally if you want maternity leave pay you have to tell you boss 28 days before you want to start your maternity leave, which by this time he/she prob will have noticed!! You don't have to take you maternity appoint. as holiday (work have to allow you to go) so unless you want to use too much of your holiday your going to have to tell. Good Luck!
