Job Searching but I'm pregnant

We all know you're not allowed to discriminate against someone because they're pregnant, but what are my chances of actually being employed?

I feel really disheartened in my search as it is, the one interview I did have she quite pointedly asked if I was planning on having any more and I said I wasnt sure. I didnt get the job.

Any advice?

I got a job while pregnant with DD1 and stayed there 15 years. Had DD2 along the way.

Are you showing? ie do they have to know you're pregnant at the interview stage?
I would avoid mentioning it until I had an offer unless the bump was un-hideable
