I've been a sahm for 2 years and, recently (this week) my dh lost his job. :/ We are.expecting dd3 in July. I'm 28 weeks and, I'm wanting to get a job eventhough dh is trying as well. Even if its dollar general or whatever. Dh told me to just wait on him. Its just the fact that we need money now and,even if its a waitress job anything helps!!!! He had a great job and, we were ok financially..
. I'm not meaning to be grypey....I just want to be able to pay our bills ya know? Should I even bother or do you think they would just "lose my application"?

This isn't your first child so I'm guessing you are showing already.
It probably wont happen.

Sorry, Babe. :/

I have heard of Walmart knowingly hiring pregnant women but they aren't shy about firing pregnant women either

They technically can't discriminate... Doesn't mean it doesn't happen.

Always worth a try!!

It can't hurt to try... make it clear in the interview though that you will still work hard and not be all whiny and expect people to wait on you.

Yes you can get a job. However not many places would be willing to hire someone who will have to take maternity leave so soon.
