If my fiance works at an apartment complex, can the company that owns it trespass me off the property?

I want to add that she is pregnant, so what if I need to get her in an emergency. We live together and are getting married. They are trespassing me from the property because I complained about the condition of the restroom she has to use because they are not keeping it up. I also worked for them several months ago.

You have no right to be on their property: you are not a tenant. A landlord or property owner can control who may enter their property, and an employer can refuse to let workers/employees have guests at their property--employers may also   ban former employees from their location. For all these reasons, they can refus to let you on or at their property and have you arrested for trespassing if you do enter. Your finance's pregnancy is irrelevant and does not affect their rights.
