I'm currently 10wk+1 pregnant and am planning to tell people after my 12wk scan (at 12wk+1). My problem is... I'm going on holiday on 12wk+3 and am off work on 12wk+2. This means I have 2 hours after my scan or the option of going into work the day after (when on leave) to tell my boss. He isn't based at the same office as me so would normally only see him once a week if that so the chances of him being in during that really tight timeframe is slim.
So my options are:
1) Tell my boss early, before the 12wk scan and ask him to keep it quiet for a few days...but then I feel like I'm tempting fate telling him before I hopefully get the all clear (and trusting him not to tell anyone else).
2) Don't tell him until I'm back from hols which means I'd probably have to keep quiet to everyone else too as it might get out.... but it's going to be really busy when I get back (14wks) and I'll be dreading it when I'm flying home and will prob be worrying on hols... so I'd rather not do this option.
3) Tell him on the phone rather than face to face (after the scan) which feels really unprofessional and I want to make this as respectful and professional as possible to make sure there are no bad feelings during the rest of my pregnancy.
I'm in a dilemma! Help! Xx
