Pregnancy & Interviews

I have decided to put out my resume for a new job for reasons I'd rather not discuss. I'm currently 8 weeks pregnant (not visibly showing yet) and not sure how to go about letting potential jobs know that I'm pregnant. Any advice?

So I interviewed for jobs when I was like 12 weeks pregnant. Didn't say anything at the interview. Announced it about a month into having a job & wouldn't you know it, I got fired a week later. My manager really didn't want to fire me she said but the owners did(worked at a local big car dealership taking service calls.etc). They fired me for things that any other job would give you warnings about or have meetings. I know it was because I was pregnant but it doesn't matter in my state.

U don't HAVE to tell them during an interview. And honestly I don't recommend doing so either. I was blasting through this interview, felt super comfortable, me and the lady were connecting really well. At the end of the interview she asked if there was anything else I needed to add. I decided to mention that I was currently 6 weeks pregnant and her face just dropped. The whole interview that was going so great and I practically was guaranteed the job just went totally downhill. All cuz I felt the need to be completely honest and upfront. If I hadn't told her then I would've 100% gotten the job. I so wish I had told them after getting the job.

You don’t have to tell them .

I personally wouldn’t say anything, from my experience when I was looking for a job around 13 weeks I told two potential employers who really wanted me to start but it seemed like that changed once I told them I was expecting. I landed my job at 6 months pregnant and didn’t tell them until my first day of work. They were cool with it
