I live in CA, I am 6 weeks pregnant and lost my job today. My employers didn't know, so that wasn't the reason I was let go. Just slow times right now. So many questions going through my mind. Can anyone help me?
1.) I'm scheduled for my 1st prenatal appointment in 2 weeks. Since I'm going to lose my insurance, my husband is going to pay to put me on his. Should I postpone my appointment until his kicks in? I don't want his insurance to not cover the pregnancy due to a "pre-existing condition".
2.) I was planning on starting a consultaing business from home after I finished my maternity leave, but now I may need to look for another job. Am I gonna have a difficult time because I'm pregnant? Should I just omit this piece of information while interviewing? Am I going to qualify for maternity disability if I've been employed at a new job less than a year? I was planning on going on unemployement insurance, but I heard if they find out I'm pregnant I won't qualify becasue I'm considerd unemployable. And If I can't get a job, I can't collect maternity disability.
I feel stuck in a corner, and I need some advice, quick!
