    Default Pregnant and new job- do I tell?

    Hi I just needed some advice.
    I'm 13 weeks preg with #2. hubby works and I stay at home with Ds. I'm looking to get some casual work over Chrissy as places usually hire their Christmas casuals until the end of Jan. I just got an interview for a job today and was wondering if I need to tell them I'm pregnant? I'm not showing at all yet but I will definitely be showing in the next month and be 24 weeks around Christmas time so it won't be a secret for long. I just feel if I do tell them at the interview they won't give me the job and if I don't tell and I get the job they will be ****es off at me for being dishonest. The job is just in retail so it's not dangerous work. We are struggling financially atm and I just want to have some extra money for Chrissy. What does everyone think and has anyone ever done the same thing?
    Thanks so much xx

    You don't have to say anything - if it's a limited time thing anyway it won't matter. I would probably keep it to myself.

    as long as it does not mean you cannot do the work...ie many retail jobs require lifting and carrying

    Keep it to yourself - although I wouldn't imagine it would affect their decision as its a short-term position anyway.

    Thanks for the advice I might keep it to myself and if I get the job I'll tell them after a few weeks

    Don't tell until it's almost obvious, if it's a Christmas casual job it won't affect them long term anyway. Do what's good for you and your family
