How to tell new employer about pregnancy?

User - posted on 11/29/2012 ( 1 mom has responded )




I've recently discovered I am two months pregnant, and I start a new job next month that involves a lot of travel. I have not signed 'on board' yet, so I am hesitant to say anything to my new employer prior to my start date. Any suggestions on how to tell my new employer when I start that I am a few months in to my pregnancy without completely ticking them off?

Well. If you live in the US you need to check out the FMLA (family medical leave act) to see what you are entitled to and what your rights are! Some jobs can fire you with no notice for the first 90+days, so you may want to keep it under wraps until after that! Congratulations!!! PS- i hope you have a really supportive partner b/c having to travel and leave a little one behind is a difficult task for both parties!
