Has anyone started a new job since becoming pregnant? I'm due in August and DH (in the Navy) should be receiving orders for us to move soon. We should be moving before the baby is born. I recently sent my resume to a company in the area where we hope to move. Today I got a response that they would like to hire me and want to send me a contract as soon as I resign from my current position. I did not mention to this company yet that I am pregnant. If they are suddenly not interested in me when I do tell them I pregnant, with the email that I have from today, I should be able to make a case for discrimination due to my pregnancy, right?

My other question is, if anyone else has started a new job while pregnant, did you have to negotiate maternity leave into your new contract? I know that FMLA will not cover me b/c I will not have been there 12 mos. And the state where we will be moving (MD) does not have any additional laws to provide maternity leave. But, obviously, I need to make sure I don't find myself unemployed when I have my baby. Any advice from anyone who may have been through this before? Any info would be much appreciated.
