    I hope to be interviewing for a position at the end of the school year in secodary ed. science at a particular school that I have been in contact with recently. I am a career changer and I am currently employed but I am certified for the position. I also just found out I am pregnant at Christmas (unplanned). I am sure I will be showing at the time of any interview so I don't think it is an issue of telling as much as discussing the pregnancy. I know, they cannot mention pregnancy in any interviews, but I was wondering "if" I should mention it and discuss potential plans for ML including length, date, etc. I know they will want to know.
    I also know this puts me at a severe disadvantage for being hired, but I am going to remain optimistic that I will be hired regardless. Does anyone have any advice on how to handle this prior to or during any interviews?

    No, you should not mention it.

    I wouldn't mention it in an interview. If you get hired, that's when I feel things should be discussed.

    Thanks for the advice. I will be in contact with them before May most likely by phone/e-mail and then I will most likely see the P and VP at a graduation in May. I don't plan on discussing anything during the interview but I am sure I will be showing at the times I see them. I just pray that it doesn't keep them from hiring me!
