Has anyone started at a new company while trying to get pregnant? Have you accepted a job offer and gotten pregnant soon after?
Context: We’re actively trying to start a family. My current workplace is good but the work is not challenging anymore. I’ve become good and comfortable with what I do. I recently interviewed and turned down three great offers that pay better. Two mentioned that maternity benefits kick in only after a year (CA law) and the other startup had no mention of these benefits anywhere. I don’t want to delay starting a family.

If you are comfortable in current work environment, that's good. You will need that comfort during pregnancy.
