  • 3 months when I started to show... plus miscarriages are more likely to happen in the first trimester so it would be better to wait till you're in the clear

  • I didn't, heh. His wife did. I work for a very small company, and I used to work for his wife. She's the one who basically begged me to come work for them (at that point, I was actually pregnant with my first child). She and I are pretty close, I actually told her as soon as I found out, and I guess she told him.

  • I told her shortly after my first doctor visit, around 7 or 8 weeks. I work at the hospital which is connected to the clinic, so I wanted her to find out from me, and not from someone else there.

  • my work found out thru a fax
    doc office was suppose to send limited lift order
    they included my high risk pregnancy info on the fax!!
    my boss called me into his office and fired me!
    i called the state employment agency and reported him, long story short, ...
    it was settled out of court and they had to pay me a half year salary
    i had not even told me mother - i was high risk, boss said i should have told him as soon as i knew- the state did not think this was a legal request at all- idiot boss, he paid for his idiot behavoir
