    Can't see why not. So long as you're willing to work, you should be able to claim JSA. However, the chances of anyone hiring you, might be slim cause you are pregnant. Temping still an option if you do struggle to find permanent job.

    Not sure about what else you would be entitled to at the moment.

    As you left your job in November, you made yourself unemployed, and so might not be able to claim for a while. I don't know though.

    Depends on what your reason is for leaving your job. You can't claim straight away after leaving a job. You have to wait an x amount of weeks. Not sure how long though.

    It can be up to 6 months (26 weeks) if you choose to leave a job voluntarily. You'd need to discuss with the advisor if there was a just cause to leave.
