  • I don't think there's a legal deadline. Most people tell work after they are at least 3 months pregnant. You can wait as long as you want. what you don't want to happen is for someone else (i.e. your boss) to suspect it before you come clean. I've known people who's waited until 5 months. I shared the news with my boss, who is great, as soon as I reached 12-13 weeks with both kids, so he and the entire team is given as much heads up as possible. It's not to say I didn't research my rights. Know your rights, what your company offer, DON"T RELY on anyone for the accuracy of the info, not even your HR. Research it, get it in writing.

  • Since I work in a vet clinic, I had to say something as soon as I was sure.. I work with X-rays, anesthesia and occasionally heavy lifting..
