Damn Integrity

I have been struggling with an ethical dilemma these past few days. I found a job I would really like to apply for. It is part-time in a school setting and the work would be healthy for during a pregnancy. I had the cover letter all mentally composed. Then I thought, "How do I interview and not tell them I'm pregnant?" This is assuming they even call me for an interview. And I know that legally it shouldn't be an issue. I even believe I could walk in and they wouldn't be able to tell. But I would know. And I would feel like I was tricking them somehow if they hired me. So I decided to apply anyway. If they call for an interview I'm going to be upfront and honest. Not start out with the announcement, but work around to it after they are dazzled by my personality. It's probably dumb but I can't do it any other way. Either they want to hire me for the 5 months I have left or not. What do I have to lose by giving it a shot?
