Have you shared your pregnancy news at work yet? If so, how did it go? If not, when do you plan to share the news?

If you are nervous about sharing the news, check out this article on iVillage.  The article has some really good things to keep in mind as you tell your boss the big news.

I stay home, but I'm planning to tell my neighborhood girls this Friday.

I remember back when I did work, I flipped out on my boss one day, and decided that was probably the right time to tell her that my hormones were out of whack.  :smileywink:  Thankfully she took the news really well!

Not yet. I'm not worried about telling them, but I like to wait until after my first ultrasound for peace of mind :smileyhappy:

Um, no way. I am going to wait as long as possible to tell anyone at work. I am hiding my saltines under my desk and avoiding happy hours so nobody guesses. :smileytongue:

I, too, would love to find another job before I start to show, but I am also contemplating a work-from-home option.
