Emergency Living Expense - Pregnant

My job terminated me with no warning right after I told them I was pregnant. They kept the 73 hours of PTO I'd rolled over for maternity leave (which is apparently legal in Arkansas) and fought my unemployment claim. They were sued in 2009 for firing a pregnant woman, I later discovered. I have had zero income since January 19, 2017, and I have no way to pay my rent or bills for the time being. I'm looking for a job, but it's hard, since I'm visibly pregnant. I'd counted on the PTO to get me through a bit longer, but they said they didn't have to pay it, then stopped responding.

I'm considered high risk because of my age (AMA), and all of this stress can't be healthy. I want my little boy to be okay. I'm due August 11th.

It kills me to ask for help, but this situation is more than just me. I don't want my baby to be born on the street. :(
