    I told my boss last night and I am guessing I'm about 5/6 weeks. Unfortunately I work in a violent setting and was assaulted last week when I just found out I was pregnant so I couldnt take the risk. I've asked her to make it a need to know only basis though until I feel like telling everyone.

    I told 2 colleagues that I am close to at 5 weeks as I knew they'd be excited. I told one of the bosses at 6 weeks. I have not told anyone else there, but am happy about the people I've told, they're very supportive and good at keeping secrets :)

    With my previous LO I told work after my first scan - at about 14 weeks.
    I'll probably do the same with this one. It is an office job so I don't have any need to tell anyone early. They may have guessed (I've been pretty sick), but nobody has asked and if they do I won't tell until I'm ready.
    But then, I'm not really telling anyone until after the scan.

    I told my boss when I found out, almost 4 weeks at that point. I trust her completely and we're very close, so I wanted her to be aware since I knew I'd have appointments plus, if I was in the bathroom throwing up, she would know what was going on with me. I have all bases covered, no matter what happens, I know she'll understand and support me. :)

    But it's different for everyone. When you feel ready, go for it. :)

    I haven't told yet! I will be waiting until 14 weeks if possible, I told 2 coworkers just to have them help cover for me when I'm sick, but not the bosses. I would wait longer, but I'm starting to show and know by 14 or 16 weeks I'll have no choice but to spill! They are not fond of pregnant women or children, and will not be happy when I tell them I will be leaving right before Christmas, our busiest time!
