This is my third baby and my second at this job. I work at a big law firm and will have to tell my older male boss soon. I am his only associate, so I know it is a PITA for him when I took my last maternity leave. I would like to avoid saying that I am having "another" baby.
How about: - "I have some news... I am expecting a November baby. We are very excited. We can figure out the leave details when the time is closer." -"Do you have a minute? I just need to tell you that I am pregnant and and due in November. The plan will probably be the same as last time. There's nothing administrative I need from you, but I wanted to tell you first."
For some reason, using the word "pregnant" with my boss feels awkward.
Should I mention that we are not planning to have any more kids? Should I say that my plan will be the same as last time and I'll be taking a week of vacation before my due date?
Have you rehearsed this? What will you say exactly?
