Pregnant and looking for a job....any advice??

Ok ladies, I'm 15 weeks pegnant and I need a job. I dont care what kind of job as long as I get hired and make some money (ok well no stripping or porn or anything crazy or illegal. lol).

I dont care if its part time or full time. I need suggestions on places that will hire an obvious pregnant woman. I am 15 weeks and I can only hide it a little and not for very much longer.

Any advice on where to apply? I have office experience so I've been applying for cutomer service and receptionist positions. I have sent my resume out to a few temp agencies as well but I need more suggestions.

**I'm in the Riverside, CA area**

Thanks in advance!

I honestly wouldn't tell them you are pregnant unless you're noticeably showing. Then when you start to show say you didn't know until much later.

I am already showing....I can hide it a little but in a matter of less than a month you will be able to tell for sure.


I wasnt planning on saying anything unless they asked but it is getting hard to hide.

Are you hoping to continue working after you have the baby?  Or is this just going to be a temporary job?

Good luck finding something!

In a perfect world I wouldnt come back after, but I will probably have to at least do part time after. We still havent decided for sure, it all depends on what happens with my fiances job. More than likely I will stay after baby is born and do part time if possible.

I have no advice, I had to put it on hold because nowhere will hire an obviously pregnant woman here, but I wanted to wish you good luck!
