Is serving 1 week notice mean being in bad books of employer? I am just exhausted and feel burnt out from constant weekend work and 15hrs of work daily for months and no resource to help to share the work load due to budget constraints.

Salary in interview. I was asked about my salary in an interview at MBB. Say I was currently receiving 70k fixed + 22k bonus. I told them "my salary is 100K including bonus". Can this little round off hurt later? The interviewer was basically asking me how much I am expecting and I told him industry standards. Kept pursuing it. In end he said just give me sense of your current salary and so I rounded off.
Had a final interview earlier this week where at the end my interviewer said “hope I’ll be seeing you after Christmas!” (the position would start in January). But it’s been a couple days and I haven’t heard anything and I’m starting to freak out 😭

I'm 25 weeks pregnant and have been looking for work for the past month and half after getting laid off. I've had several interviews, but so far nothing has panned out. Baby is due mid-September. Is it too late at this point? Should I just stop looking and wait until after the baby is born? This has been such a stressful time.
Informed today that, unless we win some new business in the next 90 days, I’ll be laid off. Thoughts on when I should start to make alternative plans? (Con’t)
