Thanks everyone. I'm really excited about the job and my boss is very nice. And a woman, which helps. So I think it will be fine. I'll probably wait until twelve or thirteen weeks though -- depending if I'm showing by then.

Ah, that situation! Congrats on the job! I got a new job (moved back to the country and needed health benefits ASAP) when I was 13 weeks pregnant with #1 (thank god my suit still fit) and then hid it for another, oh, 5 or six weeks (buying bigger pants, wearing sweaters, it was winter It went really well when I did tell them, so I hope it goes well for you as well! And remember, pregnancy is NOT a condition you can be fired for!

I just bought a new suit for a 3rd interview. That will make 3 suits that I won't be able to wear shortly (and I fear ever again). I really need the new suit for my mood going into an interview. But if I got this job (konnnehura poo poo poo!!) I will have to get a much dressier wardrobe and I can't imagine buying non-maternity stuff now.

PiePie, good luck on your job search! I am glad this job came up when it did. This is my second babe and I can tell that I am going to start showing a lot earlier than last time. I could have hid it for several months last time, but I don't think I'm going to make it past 12 weeks without people guessing.
