Anyone have any ideas how one can get money after getting fired? I had everything planned out to get paid maternity leave but I lost it all today with my job. I am not certain if I can claim unemployment after I give birth or what my options are and I was curious if anyone else has experienced this. My DH lost his job three weeks ago so we are really struggling and I don't want to take advantage of anything but we are trying to look for jobs but they are hard to come by. Especially since I am 35 weeks along and he never got his high school diploma. We live in Oregon if that helps at all.
