I just found out that I am expecting my 2nd child a little sooner then we thought it would happen. I am due at the begining of september. since the school year starts mid august for me should I tell her I will try to be there those 2 weeks or just tell her in advance time to find someone to cover me the first couple weeks of the school year. Also when is a good time to let her know so that she can plan for the next school year?

Congrats! I would wait until at least the second trimester. I see by your ticker that you're only 6 weeks. Whether to work the first few weeks is totally up to you. It's a personal and financial decision. I've never worked while pregnant. I got RIFed just before I became pregnant with my first child so I don't know what it's like to work when you're 8 months pregnant. If you have worked while pregnant before, you could base your decision on that. I hope you have a happy and healthy nine months!

Congrats! I agree about waiting to tell. I went thru this last year (and my admin was moving people around, so I wanted to wait until she had announced her decision). I worked up until my delivery, which was a week early, so that I had more days after. It wasn't bad. My coworkers helped me out with physical stuff like walking from one end of school to another (they sometimes picked up my class so I wouldn't have to walk as far.). It helped pass the time, and I liked the excitement of knowing I could be leaving at any minute.

Thanks for all of yall's advice. My DH and I talked it over and I am planning on telling her when we get back from spring break at the end of March (hopefully I can hide it until then). As far as the beginning of the year I guess I will just wait to see how the summer plays out and if I go into labor early.
