I am currently 27 weeks pregnant.
I got a job as a contractor for a big company about two weeks ago and did not inform them about my pregnancy.
What do you think their answer will be when I mention I'm pregnant? I'm trying to evaluate all the possible scenarios.
And when do you think I should inform them? Now, in a little while, or one month before my EDD?
Thank you so much!

Brown girls…would you give a guy a chance if you are not attracted to them on the first date but they check off most of your boxes? This is an arranged date btw. I have never done this before and went on this to pacify my parents. But, it’s so stressful to say no solely on the basis of lack of attraction. If you know desi parents, you might know what I mean. I don’t know how to go forward.
