Continue CORBA atleast till the deliver and post-partum - for as long as possible..
Terminating you in your ninth month pregnancy is probably against the law, i think if you can prove it, you might be able to sue your employer, check your local state laws..
When adding my wife to my medical coverage provided by my employer, my wife was pregnent, I did a bit of reading up, most of the group insurance policies offered by employers does not consider pregnancy as pre-exisitng condition. That is the major benefit of group insurance policies. If your husband is working in the west, Kaiser
is the way to go!
As mentioned in the above post, employer should offer CORBA, which can be your backup.
Always remember that tough times will always pass!! just hang in there!
All the best!
