I just started a new job in May, I had no idea that I was already pregnant when I started the job, now I am currently 17 weeks and still do not know how to tell my boss about the pregnancy. How do you break the great news in a professional way?

Just tell them, they can't fire you or anything due to you being pregnant, that's discrimination and you can sue... But they do need to know since you will be taking maternity leave and will be having more frequent doctors appointments. Also what if you go into labor while at work and they still don't know? SUPRISE! but they do really need to know, so tell them as soon as possible. Don't be scared.

I would just let him know you need right talk to him when he has a moment and tell him. While it's great news for you it may not be for him because he's going to have to find someone temporarily to fill your role.
