This pregnancy has gone great so far. I'm 22 weeks but you can't really tell due to how small I was before I got pregnant. We need the money do I put in applications. I got a call today for an interview at ihop. It's better than nothing. I'm hoping I get it. I'm also not planning on telling them I'm pregnant until after I get the job (if I get it) so send some good luck my way please. We could really use this!!

I am pretty certian that it is a law that you do not have disclose that you are pregnant until you are ready to do so. No need to spill the beans ASAP unless you just want to.

I'd rather not lol. I don't want to ruin my chances. They are already low due to no job experience. Ever. So I'm just going to wait. They're not going to ask so it's not like I'd be lying. :)

They can't discriminate against you for being pregnant either, it's a law.

I know but if they knew even if they wanted to give the job they probably wouldn't and they would just use my lack of experience as the excuse.

:( I'm sorry. You could have taken them to court.

They came up with a bs reason to do so, they hated me for telling a manager off who wanted to cuss me out infront of customers

My friend got a job when she was about 5 months along. She does customer service for Best Buy from her home. I will get the information for you if you like.

That would be amazing if it's not to much trouble!

She said the training is intense but it's a job. I'm thinking about looking into myself.
