Even just a cafe/Christmas/New Year retail position...?
I have applied for a few jobs lately, and was offered 3 positions, while they knew full well I am pregnant and expecting in March.
I guess it kind of depends what sort of position you think you could handle. Obviously if you applied for a job where they wanted someone long term, then your chances aren't very good.
But I do get where you are coming from Benji.... I also know living in different cities there are different opportunities etc.

Just keep your head up hun, put on a brave face, and face the music!! Just go in there and state your case, and hope for the best.
Make sure to let us know how it all goes.

Thanks for your support all. I still have a job. I got a written warning, they said I breached THREE company policies and that I should have spoken to my manager if I needed more breaks. I think I am lucky to still have a job, I will be on my best behaviour for the next few months, then maternity leave!!
I spoke to the union at the very last minute, and they told me not to mention pregnancy in case work thought I was using it against them and trying to manipulate them. I tried in the meeting but I hate lying and I just didn't know what to say so I told them the truth and I am glad I did.
Also - I didn't cry!! Woohoo!! I came close, I got tears and sniffly but no bawling lol.
