I am 12 weeks pregnant and got laid off right before christmas. I had a job interview today for a medical assistant position in a family practice. It went so well that he pretty much hired me on the spot but I still have to get the official offer from HR (tonight). However, I did not tell him I was pregnant. The last interview I had somewhere else I told them and they did not hire me. I feel like I am being dishonest for not saying something. I spoke with a hiring manager that I know and the said to take the job offer and wait another month before saying anything at all. I am completely stuck on what to do! I read something that legally you don't have to tell until after 15 weeks!

You don't have to tell them you are pregnant, and frankly, I wouldn't untill you start to show.

Unfortunately in the world we live in, many employers, despite it being illegal, discriminate against pregnant women.
