    I am going through this same battle myself - the best thing to d which I have just doen is get onto your local jobcentre - you can find their details on www.jobcentreplus.co.uk and then they shoudl be able to help you out. Can you still go back to Uni and then come February defer for a year?

    Hi Jenny!

    I know that u will be able to get Contibution based JSA. They will assess that on whatever your partner earns...

    then when baby is born u will get Child Benefit and Tax Credits...
    Contact your local Jobcentre for more info as I am not too sure axactly how much u will be entitled too..

    Love Dani xx
