When Is Is Appropriate To Let Employer Know

Cassie - May 3

I am going on a job interview today, and I am fairly certain I will be getting the job b/c it's simple and only P/T. My only question is how long after I start would it be appropriate to inform this employer that I am pregnant?

I guess it depends where you are. In Australia you are obliged to tell them at 12 weeks. I found out from a birth and pregnancy magazine that comes out with the same info leaflet inside it each month. Perhaps you'll find one like it in your newsagent.

how far along are you? I am 9 weeks and I plan to tell my boss at 12 weeks when I am more confident that my pregnancy will last... I will be showing sooner (twins) so I don't want them to find out by looking at me and feel lied to or anything...

I told my boss when I was about 10 weeks. I wanted to be sure that my pregnancy was healthy before I said anything and I wanted to be 100% positive that I was going to keep it.

I think because it's a new job it depends how far along you are. If you are under 12 weeks tell them around 12-14 weeks. If you are past 12 weeks then you don't have much time before they start noticing you gaining weight and all that.

Thanks for the advice. I will be 10 weeks as of tomorrow. I think I'm going to wait as long as I can... although I can feel my b___t getting bigger as we speak! lol luckily there's a pretty lax dress code (jeans) So I will probably get to go a little longer.

Hi Ca__sie, just be careful not to overdo anything. Take care =0)
