This was definitely an unplanned pregnancy and I struggled for awhile about what to do...i am use in August and we have decided to keep the baby. There are many reasons for why this was such a hard decision first being that i am unemployed and ACTIVELY looking for a job we re living off do my DH income and it is a definite struggle...the second reason is DH has 3 children from another marriage and their mother needs help she has 6 kids has never worked and treats them like trash, she is very abusive to the kids!!! We are trying to get custody of them but we already know they will need serious counseling, they are already showing signs of damage from her treatment...so I was feeling absolutely torn like we need to help these children, they are going to need much attention, so will the baby and I have a 13 year old...it's just been very stressful. I just pray that I find a job before I actually tart to show because the 2nd income is very much so needed and will lift a weight off.

The good news is that you don't need to mention your pregnancy or anything to do with your children during your interviews! And they can't ask you, even if it is EXTREMELY obvious that you're expecting.

When you get hired you will need to discuss it with HR, though.

edit: here's an article talking about how to handle getting a new job while pregnant:


I would add to make sure to have a solid plan for when you'll be leaving and when you'll be coming back and how you'll handle the transitions so that it is smooth for your future employer.

Congrats on the decision of keeping your baby. I pray you find that job soon and that you are able to have a positive impact on these other kids lives as well.

So glad I came across your post. I am pregnant and my fiancee hasnt found a job in months I mean months I even apply for him because I was thinking its the way he is doing his applications. I am the only one bringing in money and it does get hard but I always pull threw it. I was so torn what to do as well when I found out I was pregnant. I have so many emotions running in my head, my fianncee has one child by someone else and sometimes i buy him stuff time to time because even though his mom works she doesnt get him anything she waits on child support. Anyway when this baby comes I made it clear I wont be buying his son no more clothes no gas to go get him every weekend. I hate to be like that but it is what it is I have a 7 year old and and a new baby on the way. I wish you well and ask God to lift the burden off of you and stay strong as you can. If for nobody else your 13 year old and the new baby. Sorry to say them other 6 kids are your husbands and his ex's responsibility.
