They sure could fire a pregnant woman, lol. They could just say she wasn't good at her job.

Unless they have proof (like the woman had a lot of warnings before she said she was pregnant), or some kind of evidence the woman's work isn't satisfactory (like significant client complaints), they're at risk for a lawsuit, and it's unlikely they'd win.

This

When I worked in a coffee shop we had a girl who was pregnant and she was HORRIBLE. She decided she had to work night shift and then she would take off to the back room and sit for hours on end leaving the only other person working to pick up all the slack saying "the baby needs to sleep so I can't be moving around". she was RUDE to customers and was abusive to the other employees. I remember one day I came in for my 6 am shift and she was sitting on her butt in the back even though it was busy leaving one single person to run everything. When I came in the cappucino machine was broken so I had to fix it (it was just clogged) and so she had to get up off her butt and take over drive thru window. She threw and absolute FIT and started screaming and cussing me out in front of customers and everything.

I walked out. I don't have to put up with that from a co worker. So I called the manager, told her I was out of there and why, and I left.

After all was said and done and the manager called me to talk about it and talked to everyone else I came back and she was fired. Well of course she took it to the employment board and fought with everything she had. We had to show them all our video surveillance of her, all the employees had to write a letter about what she was like to work with and we had to have some witnesses write letters about their experiences with her as customers. they did end up taking our side and accepted that she was fired because she SUCKED and not because she was pregnant but it REALLY took a lot to get it done. She just figured since she was a minority and pregnant that there was nothing we would be able to do to fire her.

It basically took an act of God but they upheld the decision to let her go because she was a BAD employee

Wow that's one of the clearest ultrasound pics I've ever seen - it really does look like a baby!

The tech took one that looks like a creepy alien baby. I'd post it but I don't want to give anyone nightmares.

People seem to take it as a personal affront - its actually kind of strange. I've had a couple people actually get upset. Luckily both sets of parents think its awesome, they're all into the surprise factor.

Wow! Super clear picture! Love it! We find out the gender in 4 weeks!

Had my 16 week midwife appointment today-- got reassurance that my bump is still within regulation size and heard a strong heartbeat.

If anyone has a Destination Maternity in the area - they have a really awesome selection of maternity clothes, some of them are pricey but some of them are much cheaper and they had lots of sales - plus I got a TON of coupons and samples and stuff
