    Yes, you have rights. If your employer has five or more employees, you have strong rights protecting your job until you return from your pregnancy, and strong rights against fired for being pregnant. Talk to an experienced lawyer about your situation right now, so you can make a healthy choice for you and your family. Just about everyone gives a free consult.
