    Hi Srida,

    ideally as an employer if given a choice between two candidates - one into the family way & one otherwise.... an employer is more likely to choose the latter. ....
    my personal suggestion would be to complete your delivery, maternity levae and all of that & then move on.
    It will best for you both emotionally as well as physically.

    Take care
    Priya
