    hi everyone
    I am 6 weeks pregnant.
    I am rather pensive about it as I am seeking employment now, and as a soon to be single parent, I can’t afford to be unemployed for the pregnancy / post period.
    Has anyone had success in a similar position - getting a job whilst pregnant? If I disclose my pregnancy what would my chances be for full time employment?
    Any advice would be much appreciated pls.

    You may look for contract job, that was what my friend did, she preg n looked for contract job (she told the employer she was preg), her performance was good and the company offered her perm job after she delivered but she rejected.

    As preg now, cant demand so much from employer, just try your best to work, who knows they'll see your effort and ask u to go back after your maternity :)

    Add oil!
