Pregnancy and redundancy

It was announced yesterday to the company that there are going to be redundancies across the company and I am in one of the affected teams.

They haven't announced who will be made redundant yet.

I have only been with the company 18 months and so won't qualify for any redundancy pay.

I'm also 8 weeks pregnant. I hadn't told them yet as obviously wanted to make sure all was ok first but now I don't know whether I should or not. I don't think it'll protect me as such as this was obviously planned a while back and my OH thinks if I tell them now they will use it as an excuse to chose me as I would be leaving anyway and they'd have to pay mat leave.

If I don't say anything and I am chosen. I don't think I'll be able to get another job in time to qualify for smp.

Pretty rubbish times at the moment.
