    I, too, am in a similar situation. I am currently 16 weeks pregnant and accepted a new grad offer before back in May, before I knew I was pregnant. By the time I start my employment, I will be 18 weeks pregnant.
    Needless to say, I am very nervous about how my employers/HR/managers/floor staff are going to receive this information. No woman should ever feel this way but I understand that the real employment world is not always as kind (even in nursing) as it should be.

    I am also very curious as to what the better way to handle this would be. I had thought of simply waiting until the first day of work, when I find out what unit I am on exactly, before informing the unit nurse manager as well as HR's nurse recruiter.

    I also would like to know what kind of restrictions I may be facing when I begin working and what kind of patients I will not be able to work with.

    Thank you :-)
