Things went south with my boyfriend( father of my unborn daughter) I found out he was using drugs and had to leave immediately. I quit my job left the state and moved up to my parents house (temporarily) to figure out what the hell to do. But now I am out of a full time job and desperate for money since I'm unsure of if bf will even be involved. Ive applied to a bunch of places but I am 5 months now and its noticeable that I'm pregnant. Everyone has turned me down. Has anyone been hired while pregnant? Is there anywhere that doesn't care? really desperate right now

Try something from home ??? My sister use to b a phone rep... And you can also work for an electric company. You just need PC / WiFi / home phone.

I can tell you becasue your pregnant they know your gonna need maternity leave. You can try a time share if in your area. They work based on sales. I use to do that. You can try a mcdonalds. Beggers can't be choosers. Don't think its your life forever it's just for now. Since your not working and your pregnant and live with your parents you can get on two programs WIC and SNAP - I'm sure they offer it in your area. Whatever you do don't lie.... Once they find out about a lie they will make you re pay and never help again. Its government assistance. And honey you left him pretty much met you don't expect his help, when the baby arrives. You can do the whole child support but just remember You have to have a good reason why you don't want you child alone with him. I'm currently in same boat with being a single pregnant woman, my ex doesn't have a $ to his name and warrents out the ass. Things will get easier. I know they will. For us both.... Congratulations on baby. Don't stress remember your baby doesn't need that while growing and forming inside you.

I know that the local baby shop here hires pregnant women and new mothers. It is a local business but maybe you could try baby stores or places that sell maternity clothing since your expertise could help you make sales? I really have no idea but it's worth a try...

I am in a similar situation and my work will run out when I am 5 months pregnant. The best advise I have received was just to keep your head up, perhaps visit a recruitment agency, you would be perfect for a 3 month temp role before you go on leave which often pays more then a perm role
