Employment and Bed Rest

Hi. I was working a full-time job, but for the last month or so, my doctor has had me on bed rest. He keeps saying we'll see how you're doing before you can return to work. I'm getting a little frustrated because I haven't had an income coming in of course. I don't earn leave. It's a temp job so I have about a month left there anyway, which is around when I'm due. I don't think I could do short term disability. I asked my hiring agency what I should do and she really didn't give me an answer, just that my job is still needing me there to complete the project they hired me for. I just don't know how long this is going to continue, if the doctor keeps doing this I won't be able to seek a temporary assistance for money since officially I'm "employed." Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks!

And yes, I want to make sure I do what the doctor says to keep the baby healthy but I also want to be financially ok for her too.
