Ok, I didn't "kinda" quit my job. I just quit my job!!!

As I said in the "getting to know you thread" I work(ed) for a temporary staffing agency internally as an Area Manager. But today....I quit. I have a lot of reasons for this. And after speaking with BF and my family, they all agree that I did the right thing. But, NOW I am a little freaked out. I have to find another job. Preferably one that I can do from home. UGH, and how am I supposed to go into an interview and say "BTW, I'm pregnant". This is going to be so difficult.

You don't have to tell them your pregnant. They aren't supposed to discriminate against you but I am sure some places will. Until you are showing I wouldn't say anything. KUP!! Good luck!!

Yeah, I thought about that. Just not telling anyone. However, I get REALLY sick during the first 3 months.....I did with both of my boys and this time around I am already starting to feel the affects of it coming. Also, I have such a had time keeping things from people. I feel like if I don't lay it ALL out there then I am lying and I just can't lie. IDK what my problem is. But if I didn't tell them, then I eventually WOULD have to tell them, and then they would want to know why I kept it from them and I would feel horrible. And I wouldn't want them to feel like I lied to them.
Does that make sense or are my hormones officially running my brain now???

Holy crap.......I quit my job!

Good Luck in the job search! Maybe you can find something p/t so you're not always there "sick" you know?

Hang in there girl. I did the same thing 2 weeks before my wedding when my #%*^%# of a boss asked me if I could change my rehearsal and postpone my fully paid for honey moon bc she was really having trouble finding coverage for me for those days and that she had to revoke my approval for vacation. Ummmmm no, nope sorry I couldn't! Lol

Yep, I agree with the other ladies. Just don't mention in during the interview. At least this happened before you are showing. It would be way worse going on a interview with a big ol belly

Good luck!!

Thanks Ladies, it does make me feel better to be able to vent to you guys. I have been pretty solid in my decision to BF and the family. I don't want them to think that I am second guessing my decision. If I stay strong in what I think is right, they'll trust that I know what is right for me. But there is the "doubt creates doubt" thing. And I dont want my fears to make them worry.
So glad I have you guys!!!

Gonna go sit by the pool and forget this day every happened

Do NOT say anything about it in the interview. Legally, they can't discriminate against you for that, but I can tell you that they can come up with plenty of other legal reasons to do so -- someone else more qualified, more experience, etc. You are only going to hurt yourself in the job hunting process if you share that.

When I was pregnant with my 2nd, I had to do many interviews because we had just moved to the area. I did not tell anyone that I was interviewing with that I was pregnant. Again, they can't legally not hire you for that reason, but trust me, it will weigh in when they consider all the options. I ended up having to tell them sooner than I wanted (about 2 1/2 months in) because I had a threatened miscarriage and had to miss work. They were totally fine and never once gave me grief about not telling them right away. I don't know any woman that would tell that she was expecting if she wasn't showing.

I appreciate everyone's input.

Thanks for the advice.

I dont PLAN on telling anyone in an interview that I am pregnant. My concern was just that they would be upset later on when they found out and feel like I had lied to them. But I understand that I don't have to tell them.

Good luck! Sounds like you did the right thing. I also agree that you shouldn't tell them you are pregnant at the interview.

I dont think they would be upset. There are sooo many people who don't find out they are pregnant till they are 2-3+ months along.

I do appreciate all the responses here ladies. I am calmer today. I am going to take the weekend to just enjoy myself and not worry and then on Monday, I'll get to really searching hardcore and get done what needs to be done.
But for now, I am not going to waste my weekend worrying
