  • Sounds like a good idea to me. You just have to decide if you are looking for something temporary or if you'll want to go back to work after the baby.

  • No I worked up until right before I was ready to have them with both of my kids. If you have no problems in the pregnancy I say go for it.

  • no, it's not. just try to find on asap because most employers won't hire if your already pregnant.m due to liability.

  • No, we hired our secretary who was about 3 mos pregnant at the time and she is on maternity leave now. It's a very family friendly employer. They're out there.

  • Yes! If you're pregnant you should stay home and wait for the baby.

    No really I'm just joking. For me, being pregnant was boring. You're only five weeks along. Even if you only work for 25 more weeks- that still gives you 10 weeks to sit at home and wait!

    If you want to work you should! And o it's not dumb.
