6 months pregnant, am I crazy to apply for a new job?
As the title says, I'm six months pregnant and it shows. I took a new job in May and am bored out of my mind! I want to be at a place where I am challenged and feel inspired, but I feel trapped to stay here until after the baby comes along.
My friend reached out about an opening at his company - not only would I be challenged, but they also offer 100% paid maternity leave. Sure, employees aren't "supposed" to discriminate based on pregnancy, and this company is rather progressive, but I feel my impending childbirth is an obvious strike against me. Is it even worth applying?
