When should I tell my boss that I'm pregnant?

Q: When do expectant mothers usually tell their employers about the pregnancy?

A: Medically speaking, I warn all of my patients against telling anyone they are pregnant until after 12 completed weeks, as the highest risk for miscarriage is the first 12 weeks of pregnancy. However, I do not have any first-hand knowledge as to when women generally tell their employers about a pregnancy.
