What to do if I’m from India on an F1 and am 7 months pregnant but my husband is back home and I need support here?

My husband applied for a visa but got rejected. Is there any way that I can get help? It’s difficult for me to manage things as I have no friends or family here. I applied for an H1 this year.

What type of visa did your husband apply for and was rejected for?  Was it H-1B? F-2?  It seems to me that she should be able to get a F-2 visa fairly easily, given that you are in valid F-1 status and you are pregnant.
