You need a personal injury lawyer now. After child is born, if child injured, you may need another lawyer.

This is not a med. mal. question; it is an auto accident question. It is often hard for clients to understand, but the mere fact that you were in an accident that was someone else's fault, is not enough to base a lawsuit in NY. You also have to have "a serious injury" as defined by statute. From the sound of the post, you may not have a "serious injury" within the legal meaning. I encourage you to write down every way in which your injuries have affected your life, and then discuss the list with an experienced attorney to see if it qualifies. My office is available, if you want to talk. Good luck!
