dunno about the job advice, i'm afraid.
you might find it better just to come clean to your new boss - say you really want the job (and you won't be entitled to SMP, but you might be allowed time off, depending on the employer), but you will understand if they prefer to give it to someone else.

But gringringrin for your BFP! grin
congratulations, and good shagging!

(you'll probably be able to get Maternity Allownace, though)

ShowOfHands Sat 11-Jun-11 13:33:30

That's smashing news.

Absolutely no job advice whatsoever but <channels own mother> twill all come out in the wash.

I'm thoroughly pleased for you matey.

Oh you'll be just fine. Doesn't matter what trials and tribulations it brings, that's a wee baby in there. I like it when they come out and do that sneezing business that takes over their whole body and sends them into a state of utter shock at their own capabilities. A baby fgs. That's brilliant news.

Stuff MN. And I don't say that lightly.

There is nothing remotely comparable to having a tiny baby. Jobs and money and space and time and all those peripheral things just have to sort themselves out one way or another. But the baby, well that's only ever going to be an amazing thing.

Sneezes and tiny feet and chubby thighs and that one day when they wear the expression 'fuck me I'm standing up, hello world'. All of it, it's marvellous and I shan't hear otherwise.

nickelbabe Sat 11-Jun-11 13:54:51

shock Showy! shock you can't say stuff MN ! shock

<faints dead away>

but she's right, about the rest of it - a tiny little baby makes everything else pale into insignificance. grin

Stuff MN sideways and I. Don't. Care.

A baby for crying out loud. A new life.

Bet it's a boy though.

StealthPolarBear Sat 11-Jun-11 14:01:34

Sorry I don't uderstand the stuff MN stiuff? What has MN done?

WanderingSheep Sat 11-Jun-11 14:02:34

That's fantastic grin

I have no job advice but agree with everything ShowofHands said.

I don't think yabu to accept the job, I'd probably do the same.

Congratulations!

shineoncrazydiam0nd Sat 11-Jun-11 14:07:30

I'm normally in 'be upfront and don't mess people about' brigade, but I must admit I would think about knocking them sidewards with my ability for a couple of months, and then say that you've just discovered etc. So long as you able to work during your pregnancy, and presumably will return to work within a reasonable period, they'd probably still rather have you than not.

And to be honest, they've messed you around in the past with their decisions.

Congratulations! smile

ShowOfHands Sat 11-Jun-11 14:11:39

"Stop that SoH! This is MN dontcha know!!"

I mean stuff MN in that where a baby is concerned, forum etiquette takes second place.

nickelbabe Sat 11-Jun-11 14:16:58

ahh, see.
was worried that MN had offended you in some way (surely not, now you've forced us all to call you Showy rather than SoH, i thought you were happy! wink )

you've got one of these growing inside you
grin
(not showy, Annie)

JetLi Sat 11-Jun-11 14:17:06

thefirstMrsDeVere Sat 11-Jun-11 14:17:12

All will be well.

A baby! How lovely.

<links arms with SOH>

JetLi Sat 11-Jun-11 14:21:06

Its a year & a week since I got a faint line. That faint line is sat in the bumbo now, watching Le Mans << sniff >>

StealthPolarBear Sat 11-Jun-11 14:23:49

ShowOfHands Sat 11-Jun-11 14:25:41

Is that linked baby yours nickel. Is that you? I might fb stalk you if so...

<links arms with MrsD and sniffs a bit at the wonderfullness of today>

I'd be crying too if I had to watch Le Mans. grin

I am inordinately happy. Especially now I'm Showy. Well to some of you. <hard stare at the rest of you>
