Job Hunting and Expecting!

Today I was laid off from a job that fit perfectly into my life. I am the mother to 3 great kids and am expecting #4 in May. I did plan on working up to my due date and then taking some time off before finding a job in the optical world.(Which is what my training is in). Now that I am 11 weeks pregnant, how will I ever find a job? I needed to be working to financially be able to take off this coming summer. Has anyone else had to go through the interview process pregnant?
