When did you tell work you are pregnant? I’m at 13w now. Boss is nice and company is supportive just wasn’t sure what was standard and im generally cautious as this is my first. Planning to tell my friends and extended family in next week or two.

It’s really when you feel comfortable but I would guess the average is when you have your anatomy scan at ~20w. I did it a bit later than that because my bonus was coming up.

I told at 12 weeks as soon as I could because I was so exhuasted and didn't want to hide it anymore. It's honestly up to you and your comfort level

I told my team at 14 weeks because we had an on-site trip and they're a very supportive group. Was so excited to share the news. :)

I didn't file HR paperwork until after the 20 week scan, but that was more of the formality

Whenever you're ready!

I told my work around 20 weeks after the anatomy scan, but I also work fully remote so it was easy to hide my morning sickness etc.

Fall vacation ideas. Wife is pregnant so we’d prefer a laid back trip. We live in Soflo so no beaches.

Partners, Principals, and Directors- how did you network effectively as you moved up in your firms? Seems like rubbing a lot of elbows is required to make friends that will vouch for you. Personally find it difficult at networking events because I don't drink, and though I have a ton of friends that do and am personally comfortable around folks that get loose, they seem to be the ones that are a bit more closed off for a number of reasons that I can understand. If you don't drink, did you experience these challenges? And whether you do or don't, what tips do you have on building those real, lasting relationships? Always feels like I have to work down their guard and that just takes so much more work than I feel others don't have to do
