I think I've missed the boat on this one. I've called and looked around a few places but have been unable to find short term disability that will cover me since I'm already pregnant. I'll have just enough sick time to cover about 8 weeks of maternity leave, but any more than that will be unpaid. DH's job is probably going to end soon and I'm concerned that if I get put on bed rest we'll be stuck with only his paycheck or whatever he's getting for unemployment. Am I stuck?
Yep! Most likely you will not be able to find a place to cover you now unless you start a new job. I fought for months regarding this same thing (I had received miss information when starting a new job - and missed my opportunity to get it even though I was already pregnant).
