Find an experienced solicitor in a good firm and put the facts to him/her.

You start from 50/50 but then adjust to fit the facts. Pro you getting more: its a very short marriage, you put in more financially, her housing needs are met by her parents. Pro her getting more she has less income and a baby. ( I am not sure whether it is legally possible to register a baby with the biological father's details if the mother is married to someone else.)

The house is jointly owned so I don't think you will get far with any argument that you contributed more financially. The assumption behind putting something into joint names is that you own it jointly. The same goes for marriage. It is normally regarded as a partnership. You will only get more than half if your ex agrees to that. If she does not then you do not have much of an argument.

For what it is worth the argument that she has somewhere to live with the child because she lives with her parents while you continue to live in what was the former matrimonial home is usually an unattractive one when there is a child involved.
