  • depends on their maternity benefits, but unless you have morning sickness or fatigue bad enough it may interfere with your work, I wouldn't bother until you start to show.

  • I would wait until you are past your first trimester because that is when you have reached the safe zone of being less likely to miscarry.

  • Unless your doing a physical labor job and you have a desk job. DONT tell them till you really have to. These days company's seem to find valid reasons to "let you go" when they know your preggo. They dont want the liability. Your personal life is NONE of their business unless it impacts your ability to do your job efficiently.
