I just got a email from the company I was applying for and found out that they turned me down at this time. I'm so disappointed, I was really hoping I would get this job.. I seriously believe it's because I'm pregnant..

Now I must start over, sigh..

Sorry. Finding a job, pregnant or not, can be very difficult. I think I applied for 30 jobs before I got the one I have now.

It might be.  But, trust me, it is far from the last rejection you will get in your life.  Pick up and move on.  That wasn't the right job for you.  Just keep trying.

  Yeah, Jobs can be scarce anymore, especially decent work with full time hours. However, maybe that will change for the better soon.

I'm job hunting too. I'm interviewing with three companies right now and still sending out my resume. You have to keep pushing forward so that the ball is on your court.

I don't blame them. Who wants to hire a prego that's going to leave in a few months?

Keep at it, it will happen. I was applying for random jobs because I'm bored as hell now that all my boys are in school and after months, the one company I did NOT expect to call me back is showing big interest, I even have an interview next week (my third...first two were phone interviews). 

Don't get discouraged, you'll find something :)

This one wasn't for you because there is something better waiting for you.

Damn that's quite a lot. I'm sure you must have got discouraged. Did you go to all the interviews and then they just went with someone else? Where did you end up getting hired at?
