Interviewing at 7 Months Pregnant

Today I had a phone interview for a job I was contacted about this past weekend. The HR Manager had received my contact information through a friend’s cousin who is friends with the woman. This HR Manager knows I’m pregnant and knows I’m looking to be part time, yet I still have a second interview (or first in-person interview) scheduled for next week.

I keep getting the feeling like, “am I crazy?” Or maybe, “are they crazy?” Who the heck even considers hiring a 27-week pregnant woman? I’m feeling very puzzled by the whole thing.

And honestly, I’m not sure I’m even a little interested in the position. For one, it’s seeming like they would want me to work 30 hours a week (right now I’m 20 and 20 at my two jobs). For two, it’s for a competitor of my old company… I know that I left the other company over a year ago, but I still feel pretty loyal to them. It just doesn’t seem right. For three, I’m guessing they would not offer me enough to consider the position. And for four, do I really want to make a job transition right now while I’m nearly 7 months pregnant?

Anyway, I guess I will just keep going through the motions and will see what comes of it. No harm in chatting with them, right?


I’m sick. Apparently, whatever my hubs (and the rest of the world) have been carrying is now my problem. I have some serious tightness in my chest, an annoying cough and just a case of the ick. I’m definitely hoping for a speedy recovery because this little cold thing is making sleep even more difficult than it already is. Not to mention, I have a big weekend! Two bridal showers and my husband’s birthday. There’s just no time for illness.

Also, as I was typing that I remembered that I’m on breakfast duty tomorrow at work. Every Friday a different person brings breakfast for the office. I had big plans of making some sort of french toast casserole or some homemade treat… but now I’m thinking bagels. I just don’t have the time or energy. Ugh. That sucks.

Beyond that, everything is great! Still been ending my evenings with some quality nursery time. It’s nice to just glide in the glider and reflect. In fact, I think I’m going to head home and cozy up in there now.

  1. Hope you feel better soon!!! Isn’t it the worst getting sick like that right at the beginning of Spring? Just doesn’t seem right but always seems to happen. I’d def see what this new place has to offer, can’t hurt and I’d just go out of curiosity. Good luck and Happy Friday!
