  • What kind of job are you looking for? What can you do? Can't suggest without knowing your skill set.

  • It's hard to find a job right now. Employers are not supposed to discriminate against pregnant women. Have you ever thought about working from home?

FREE website, training, and UNLIMITED support!! Just A SAFE, SIMPLE, SENSIBLE, and SOLID ... NO-RISK HOME BUSINESS. The best part is I can make money and be with my Family!!!
    You can have the best of both worlds too.
    I would love to give you more information and help you reach your financial goals!

  • I had a job interview today and I hid how pregnant I am really well and then the guy walked me out to my car and saw our "family stickers." AH! DH put them on because he's so happy I'm pregnant. You know, the little stick figure ones that are so the rage. And the guy was like, "You have a baby? No car seat? Wishful thinking? Are you pregnant?" And they are totally not supposed to ask! And I'm not going to lie. But I do have a meeting with the CIO and CEO next week. Grrr....

  • Old Navy hired me when I was 6 months pregnant. Gap, Inc. is a really family-friendly company.

  • Be careful getting a new job while pregnant!! I found out I was pregnant right after my boss hired me. She told me it wasn't a big deal- but the company ended up screwing me over. Lost my insurance at 37 weeks, and now my boss has told me she doesn't have any open hours for me to go back to work. I wish you the best of luck. Just make sure that you are going to a place that is truely family friendly. And if they give you insurance make sure you can keep it when you cu tback on your hours!
