So my boss is currently evaluating our hiring needs for the coming year and I'm starting to feel guilty about not telling him about my pregnancy. We just brought in a really strong candidate today for an interview, but my boss isn't sure yet if we definitely need the additional staff and is looking into alternatives including interns.
I'll be 8 weeks on Thursday and I'm wondering if I should tell my boss now even though it's early so we don't miss out on an excellent candidate. Obviously my boss will have plenty of time from Thanksgiving (when I originally planned to tell work), but considering I'm planning on maximizing my maternity leave (I think I'm eligible for up to 24 weeks in NJ?) and then reducing my hours once I come back, I feel bad knowing all this and not saying anything now.
What should I do??
