How to Make Your Boss Laugh While Announcing a Pregnancy

By December 12, 2012

I am lucky enough to hear a lot of stories about pregnancy announcements. There is not a harder person to tell than your boss. I spend a lot of time trying to help people break the news gently and professionally.  So I had to laugh when Theresa shared this story of telling her boss about her good news:

"To make my boss laugh I yelled 'Hey! I've got a baby in my uterus!' loud enough for everyone in the office to hear. The roar of laughter was priceless."

Do you think you could get away with that, or are you going for something more low key and traditional?  What's your story?
