If you cannot file for divorce while you are pregnant (did a licensed, practicing family law attorney tell you that?) you can at least get the paperwork started so you can file immediately after your baby is born. A local family law attorney can best advise you of your rights and possible options. In matters like this, it's not a good idea to rely on information gathered from friends, relatives or coworkers. Just a word to the wise.

In Arkansas your not allowed to file for a divorce if your pregnant
That's incorrect. You can file for divorce. However, the court won't grant the divorce until after the child is born so that any issues of paternity can be resolved and appropriate orders for custody, visitation, and support can be entered.
can I file for a divorce
This seems to be a rather bizarre question in light of your stated premise that you are "not allowed to file for a divorce if your [sic] pregnant." In any event, yes.
will he have any rights to our baby since this is his second domestic charge?
Yes (unless you have reason to believe some other man might be the child's father).
He's not mentally stable and his temper is beyond out of control.
You're free to argue these points in connection with the determination regarding custody and visitation.
