You may have a chance under current rules, but you need some money in savings or external support from other family members. It's £111.45 per week after housing costs. If your husband has some money, that will count too.

When the expected new rules come in, you are unlikely to be eligible as you need to be earning something like £25,700 a year, with benefits and external sponsorships likely to be disregarded.

Being disabled and pregnant don't amount to compassionate ground.

I don't know how UKBA will look at your finances because they only allow some, but not all benefits for maintenance purposes. It's much safer to have an external sponsor lined up who can give you at least the minimum weekly amount expected, in writing and enclosing pay slips and bank statement (for 3 months) to show they can afford it.

Even under current rules, UKBA aren't impressed by UK sponsor (that's you) with little income of their own and depends largely on public purse. They often exercise their discretion to turn down such applications. We have seen them getting ever so much stricter in applying rules, no doubt in anticipation of new rules coming in shortly.
