    Default Announcements at work...

    Ok, so now I have had my NT test and everything is on track, I am getting ready for the announcements. Starting with work... I work in a smallish company (30 people) scattered all over Australia and I don't really want to do the announcement in person at an all staff meeting. Instead I was thinking about sending a calendar notice to save the date on my EDD saying:

    I am expecting to be unavailable this day and for 6-8 months thereafter... Please don't hesitate to stop by my desk, call or email if you have any questions. Thanks, Sam


    In the interests of full disclosure I have already told my boss - he was awesome and genuinely excited for us I will probably tell a few other close colleagues and the CEO ahead of the email.

    What do you think?? Any other ideas?? How did you tell everyone at work??

    I worked in a team of about 20 around the country and I emailed a pic of the 12 week ultrasound and said to expect a "new addition" to the team on my due date

    It is so much fun to be able to let the car out of the bag!

    I told my manager and my supervisor via email (very small office, and asking for a meeting would have raised eyebrows). My manager walked over, in front of everyone and said 'congratulations. I love babies'. Nice job moron!

    I was! In his defence I was pretty close with the girls I worked with, so he probably assumed they knew.
