Have you told anyone you work with that you are TTC?

One person at work knows im TTC. Depending on what im doing at work would really determine if I tell my boss right away or not. I work in a factory thats about 80% male so I have no idea how they feel about it since they dont deal with it often. I would wait a while if possible but if I was assigned to work with chemicals or something unsafe for my baby, I wouldnt hesitate to tell them.

I'm not telling anyone at all about my ttc. I think my boss would be happy for me. But when I see her face after I do get prego I'll know how she feels. Lol

No one at work knows that we're officially trying again, though I'm sure they wouldn't be too surprised to hear that we are (our DD just turned 1 and I've said that I want my kids to be close in age).

With DD we waited until the end of the first trimester, the plan is the same for this pregnancy - unless I am obviously showing before that.  But with DD I didn't "show" until 23 weeks, so i don't think it should be an issue to wait until 13 weeks to tell my boss.

With DD i took 10 weeks of leave and I would expect to do the same with this pregnancy, though who knows how the timing works out and what the circumstances will be this time around.  We'll figure it out when it actually happens....though my returning to work is a definite!

My employer knows and has known for a while. It was a question asked every day and I had several break downs to coworkers when 3 employees became pregnant all at the same time! Plus, with having to be at the doctor on specific days, they have to know so I can leave to have my Ultrasounds and such! They have been pretty good! I would love to wait to tell, but at this point, it will be hard because we will be so excited to have finally gotten pregnant!

My work has ALWAYS had 2 people preggers at the same time (even before I started there). So one gal has been talking lately about starting to TTC cause he hubby is SOOOO wanting it. Well my hubby recently jumped on the train and as soon as we get Mirena removed I will start TTC too. So we have kinda been talking about it. I work at a preschool andt they are super friendly with pregnant woman. My boss has jokinly said she doesnt need anyone going out on mat leave cause she has such a great team but I know if any of us got preggers she would be 100% on board. :-)

Since everyone knows I want another kid and soonish they are expecting me to be knocked up soon and will prolly be asking me every month if I am preggers yet. lol

I haven't told anyone, although I seem to get a lot of questions about when we'll be having kids, I hate that! I want to wait until I'm through the first trimester before telling them. I'm a little nervous about it, but there have been several women in the company who've had babies and it seems to go well.

I'm planning on going back to work, we really can't afford for me not to, and I really enjoy my job. My MIL has been dropping hints that she wants to babysit when we have kids, but I don't even want to consider that. I'm more nervous about telling her than my boss! She's not going to be very happy about it, but I don't think she's capable of watching a child all day long.

Pretty much everyone here knows I am TTC...mostly because I had a meltdown when I found out 4 of my coworkers are all due in late nov/early dec. Once I get PG everyone will probably know cause I can't keep a secret to save my life. My work is really good with pregnant women so I have no fears telling my boss. They will all be excited for me :)
