My husband is a PR and filed for me a while ago . My PD won't be current until 4 / 14 ( as of the March visa bulletin ) . I am finishing up my OPT and pregnant with our second child . I can't work because I have difficult pregnancies . Any way to bridge the gap and stay in status between Aug '13 and Apr '14 ? My husband doesn't want me to leave the country due to my medical condition and he doesn't want our family separated and take the risk of being denied a visa to re - enter since I've already had an I - 130 filed on my behalf . Any suggestions would be appreciated .
