Hi everyone! I could greatly use a few thoughts on when to tell my new employers I'm pregnant.
Unfortunately I was in the crappy position of being laid off at 3.5 months pregnant (with my first kid) as part of a massive reorganization. I started looking for jobs early and was offered a new one quickly. I was totally upfront about being laid off (I worked at huge company, so it was all over the news) but not about my pregnancy. I started last week and things are off to a good start, but I still haven't told them. I'm now at 18 weeks. I was hoping to get a few weeks in before I spill the beans, but it's basically a race against the clock with my bump. Since I'm a bigger girl it doesn't really look like a bump yettttt, but my husband, family and good friends are now telling me they can tell I look pregnant now and it's just a matter of time before I pop.
Any advice on when to tell? Should I get it over with or try to wait it out a little longer, establish more of a reputation and then tell? If it makes any difference the HR rep that hired me is leaving for another job on Friday.
Oh, FWIW I definitely plan on coming back after the kid.
