when should I tell my firm/ practice about my pregnancy? on the one hand, I'm afraid that would put me on the chopping block (already having several extremely slow months). on the other, perhaps that can give them pause before handing me the pink slip? in any case, being laid off right now would be a disaster because i might not be eligible for FMLA at the next firm having joined within a year. thanks in advance for your advice.
