I emailed my resume to one place the other day when i posted about wanting to change jobs, and they just called me. They want me to interview on Monday. I was going to just maybe wait it out, but i couldn't make myself tell them never mind. Lol. Do i tell them at the interview I'm pregnant?
I personally would let them know only because we had a similiar situation where we hired a girl only to find out she was pregnant almost 4 months along and now we are scattering to find a replacement because she isn't coming back after maternity leave. She's done this weekend, although baby isn't even due until Jan! She is just "so tired".
pfft my rant isn't necessarily the same issue as yours I was just sharing the "other" side. We felt tricked a little bit by her hiding it. She was also way further along.
I definitely intend on returning to work. Is it best to let her know and let her know i fully intend on working after and making up time missed for appts when possible? Or is it okay to let her know once (and if) it's offered? Or is that just as bad as not telling?
Since you are so early, and if you are planning on staying after the baby is born.. I actually personally wouldn't.. My hubby is an HR Manager and they can't discriminate based on pregnancy, but a lot of people will find some other stupid reason for you not to get the job because they don't want to have you leave for a maternity leave Hubby just told me follow the same--wait until the second tri to tell people--stance with my employer last time. It worked out okay!
But like the other ladies said, if you are planning to leave once the baby is born and this job will only be temporary, then you probably should disclose it... it is more fair to the employer so they can decide whether to invest in the training and stuff.

I agree with Valerie. Tell them if you're not planning on going back after maternity leave, but I feel like it's fine to wait til your second trimester to let them know. Totally up to you, though. And congrats on the interview!
