How far are you? If you're not showing yet or just a little don't say anything. I had the same dilemma. I got the job at about 12 weeks. Was mostly bloated so I just hid it. I acted like a surprise 2 weeks later once my training was over and I felt like I had made a good impression. Legally they can't say no to you cuz your preggo but they can simply say we found someone with better experience and it be a lie. No one would ever know. I would just keep it quiet and when you're comfortable enough tell your employer :) good luck. I was scared and it turned out not bad at all

I had an interview at 15 weeks in, wasn't showing at the time but they cannot ask and you do not have to tell until you need to put in a maternity leave.  In my experience everyone was happy for me.

By law they cannot ask you if your pregnant and by law you are not required to inform them before hire. I interviewed at 6 months pregnant, I wasn't really showing yet and wore a flowy top, I got the job and at 7 months I informed my boss I was expecting. (Which everybody already knew due to our uniforms showing my tummy more) they did not care at all, and was very happy for me. I was all worked up and nervous for nothing. And if u do happened to get fired for announcing your pregnant. Sue them!
