I work in a school and havent been in the school building over the summer. I’ll be going in on Thursday and I’m not sure how I am going to break the news to my principal about my pregnancy.
What did you say to your boss when you were pregnant?

1112bride: “Just wanted to inform you that I am expecting our child in (month/year), and that I plan to take (X) month/months off under FMLA/maternity leave. I plan to work until my due date, unless doctor states I cannot. I also plan to come back to work part-time/full-time (if applicable) when my FMLA expires. Please let me know when I need to submit paperwork, and how we work out benefits, compensation (again, if applicable), and acquiring a substitution during my leave.”
Professional, short and too the point!! There is not a mandatory time you need to have this conversation with him/her, but he/she may figure it out if you start to show. Have no fear, you are protected under Federal law 🙂

My boss is very laid back. I kinda went up to him one morning and was like, “remember how I just had a baby 6 months ago and I started back two months ago? Yeah, well we’re going to need to do that again. We are pregnant again.”
He told me he had a feeling because I was showing, which he put in much better terms. I was about 10.5-11 weeks at the time.
My way was unprofessional lol but for the most part I’ve never heard someone act negatively

I just started my job at 12 weeks, (but was hired before my BFP)… So at 13 weeks I said “I have good news and bad news…” “Bad news is, can I have some time off at the end of January…? And good news is in pregnant!” My boss is awesome bc she’s a new mom so she was totally awesome about it!

I say just be upfront about it and don’t wait too long so they have time to figure everything out before you have to leave and plan for a time where you may be put on bedrest and can’t work full term.
My FSIL decided that she was going to be a SAHM right before the school year started and the school was upset she didn’t notify sooner so they were scrambling to find a replacement.
