I worked in a child care centre and had terrible morning sickness (all day sickness), so I was running off to the toilet pretty often and wanted to sit down alot as everything around seemed to spin frequently. My boss and director called me into the office one day and basically told me "we know youre pregnant so we can sympathize, but you need to either lift your game or decide if its better to quit" ...so stop havingg morning sickness or quit so Im technically not firing you. Feeling really guilty, I quit.

With one job, no. They hired me at 35 weeks pregnant (and BELIEVE me, it was obvious! lol). But with this one I worry, not because I'll be discriminated against but as a pp said, I'll be behind the pack when I get back to work in terms of training etc.
As the pp said though, I'd rather put having my family get a little bigger first *chuckle*.

I have never felt discriminated against but it has certainly hindered my career progression.
I applied for a promotion when I was 9 months pregnant (had been acting in the role for 6 months), interviewed when DS was 3 weeks old and was found highly suitable. When I came back from mat leave, the person who had been acting for 9 months got it permanently over me. I suppose I made my choices with having a baby but it still sucks a bit!
