  • Start the job. There's no reason you shouldn't be able to work for six or seven months. There's also no reason to tell them you're pregnant right now.

  • Oh, and put some periods on the ends of sentences from time to time--it makes it much easier for people to understand your question.

  • If you want the job, take it. You don't have to tell them you are pregnant for a long time. I was 5 months pg, interviewed and got the job, never mentioned being pregnant until I was about 7 months and started showing.
    I fully believe that just because a person is pregnant, doesn't mean they lost their mind in the process..

  • Do you want to take the job? What impact will it have on your 4 and 5 yr olds? Do you want to work until you deliver, continue to work after the baby comes or only work until the school year is over? With a 4 year old I know what my answer would be.

  • Pregnancy has nothing to do with it. If you want the job, take it.

  • Take the job, unless you don't plan to go back after your maternity leave.
