IKEA is always looking for good people. There is so much turnover, that finding a job there shouldn't be an issue. Your pregnancy shouldn't make a difference. Schedules generally are pretty flexible. You can generally work as much, or as little as your pay grade allows. If you're looking for a few extra hours, that generally isn't an issue. If you're looking to stay under 20 hours per week, that generally isn't an issue. Realize that you will be on your feet for your entire shift (less breaks and lunch).

IKEA does offer maternity leave, albeit unpaid. You will NOT lose your job when you take leave.

Good luck.
