If your pregnancy is affecting your ability to do your job then it’s time to tell your boss and HR(!) so they don’t assume it’s because you’re being a lousy worker.  Do you need the overtime for the money or to maintain your position in your job?  Would it be dangerous or overly stressful for you to work overtime?  It’s really up to you.  I personally wouldn’t sign up for overtime for just in case but if you need the money then sign up and drop out and tell them you’re pregnant if you end up not being able to do it.

i would tell your boss/HR sooner then. i waited to tell my boss, but i felt fine. if i was in your situation, i would want the support of my superiors rather than them wondering why i was always bailing out.

I told my boss at 6w4d because I was feeling so sick and kept coming in late or leaving early and didn’t want him to think that I was being a slacker.  He was very understanding and supportive, which is nice.

But today, he just sent me an email with “?” as the subject and asked if I have good news from my ultrasound.  This makes me super uncomfortable and also makes me regret saying anything to him to begin with.  First off, my u/s isn’t until tomorrow.  But more importantly, I had a miscarriage in August (which I also told him about because I needed time off), so what if something bad happened again this time?  I wouldn’t want him to pry!
