I was laid off two weeks before Christmas which was not fun but than I found out I was pregnant.  We were planning to have another one but not while I was unemployed.  I found a job that I think will really fit me and they have asked me back for a second interview.  The question is do I tell them that I'm pregnant and risk not getting the job or do I wait until I'm showing and already have a few months working for them before telling them.  Will they be really mad at me for not telling them up front.


Most woman are telling me I should hide it until after I have the job so I don't risk loosing it and most men are telling me to be honest right up front from the begining and risk having them not hire me and than I will be stuck on unemployment until after the baby is born.


What do I do?

 I think I would tell them in the next interview. If you don't, and (God forbid) something happens to the two of you at work, it could be a really hairy situation. Whatever you decide, good luck to you and enjoy your blessing. Be healthy and safe. I hope things work out for you.
