I definitely haven't told mine! I work for a great company, but I just started about 3 weeks ago so I am really nervous about how to tell them.

I am not worried about being fired, and I know they cannot fire me for being preg. Also I should mention that I was part of the union since day one.

I am just hoping someone is KINDA in the same boat as me, and/or has some suggestions!
Love, Christina

Me. I work for jerks who think they can do whatever they want without consequence. No regard for people at all. I'm waiting until I can't wait any longer. Pretty sure they will figure out a way to try and get rid of me.

I'm HR there, there is no one I can talk to. The top ppl are the problem.

I am going ( supposto) be going back to work on Thursday ( my boss is giving me a hard time about going back even though he legally has to take me back because mat leave is job protected) if I were to tell him there is no way he would give me my job back he wanted me to go on my mat leave at 17 weeks with dd when I told him he doesn't beleve pregnant people are capable of working :/ ( I have the easiest job for a pregnant person I sit at a desk 85% of my day )
I called the layout bord to find out my rights and legally I don't have to tell him until 6 weeks before I am due so I don't plan on telling him until it's absolutely obvious then I know he's going to try to fire me and I'm going to have to fight it

I work for the worlds bigges a** he is a dr who thinks he is better than everyone but I am stuck going back there because getting / keeping a new job here when your pregnant is imposible not even mc donnads will hier you and I despratley need to get 600 hrs in so I qualify for benifits again or we will never make it financially

I havent told my work yet. Not really sure why not, I guess i'm just a little nervouse since my m/c was just in March. I feel weird talking about another baby already. I will have to tell them soon though, some people in my office already know.

I'm still trying to find a teaching job for the fall, and no, I am certainly not telling anyone at an interview that I'm pregnant! If I don't get a job within a few weeks, though, I think I'm doomed, because I'm already starting to show a little bit.

I'm glad (but sorry) to hear that we all seem to be in the same-ish boat.

I'm not sure when I'm going to tell them, I'll probably wait a little longer.. I'm super nervous too!
Love, Christina

I haven't either, and am nervous about doing it. I've been there 5 years, but it's going to put a crimp in things and there really isn't a maternity policy and I'm going to have to try to work around things with my boss, who I hope is understanding. No one's around for the summer so I'm waiting for things to start back up in a few weeks. Once people start seeing me, I won't be able to hide it because I'm definitely showing. Good luck to all of us!!
