Job Interview Today

Okay so I got a last minute response back regarding a job at Jack in the Box. So I have an interview in about three hours. My question is when and should I bring up the fact that I'm pregnant? I don't want to be deceitful and not tell them and then be like "by the way I'm pregnant" but on the other hand I don't want to be dubbed "unfit for the job" for some miscellaneaous reason when it was really because I told them I'm pregnant. What should I do??? What did you guys do? Please help thank you :)

It deponds on how far along you are. Lots of people don't tell their employers until they are thru the first trimester.

Agree with the comment above it depends how far along are you and if you are showing. I went on a Job interview yesterday i am 37 weeks i told them rite away the only difference with mine is that the position is for september. Good luck

Well I'm already out of my first trimester. I'm 16 weeks and starting to get a tiny little bump but I don't think a stranger could notice it yet. I've never had morning sickness EVER and I don't want them to think that I'll take tons of days off. The only difference in my performance being pregnant is that I get tired easier and thirstier. My boobs are huge compared to when I wasn't pregnant but I don't think that would give me away. What do you think? My mom says to not tell them and to wait a month after having the job to tell them. My only concern is that I'll start to show before I tell them if I wasn't upfront in the beginning.
