I just got done having a second interview. The company wants to bring me in for a third interview on March 16th. ). The first two interviews were phone interviews), so I haven't yet told them I am PG. They also want someone on board pretty quickly--the latest I could push them off for a start date would be May 1--but more than likely it actually looks like I would have to start by April 15. Which means I would be going back to work just a couple weeks post partum.
But I don't really have a choice at the moment. My DH works for GM and could be laidoff any day, as well. And he started chemo about about 3 weeks ago and many of the drugs he is on are "exempted" from the healthcare coverage he gets through GM because they are so expensive ($800 a week). So last week I thought I had a nice 12 week covered maternity leave with DS and now it looks like I will be going back with virtually no time off. I would have stayed home indefinitely with DS, if not for DH's medical condition and employment prospects right now.
On the up side, this job is better than the one I left, it has more flexible hours and better pay--(about a $35K pay increase per year!). It would be my dream, if I just didn't have to start so damn soon. Ok--trying my best to stay positive about this...at least the hiring manager told me I am the strongest candidate they have. We'll just see what they think when I show up 38 weeks PG at the next interview!
