Any young to-be moms having a hard time to find a job?

I'm Danielle, I'm 19 and I'm due August 9. I've been trying to find work for what seems forever. Nobody is willing to give me the chance. Am I alone or is this the same thing for some of you out there?

While I have never had that problem, I could imagine it is a common problem. Here in Australia, you pretty much need doctors' approval to continue working beyond 34 weeks (unless that has changed in recent years, but it really is an employer insurance issue). August 9 isn't that far away, so......I CAN understand from the perspective of the employer. I don't think it is so much that they don't want to give you a chance, but it actually costs money to train people, and given you are due in about 6-7 weeks, their investment simply isn't worth it. I'm sorry it has been difficult for you though.
