Deffinetly Scared..15 and pregnant. Angellica Collins 1 child; Indiana 63 posts

Well I'm due September 11th and well my boyfriend says he's staying and he's 16 but well I feel really close to him... It was a total mistake to get pregnant. We figured out I was 6 weeks pregnant after about 3 months of dating. We didn't mean for it to happen and I was only living with my dad but now my moms back here with me. I need some tips and places I could go to online to find help on how to raise a baby and find out other information. But I'm scared but I know it happened for the best I mean better now then later because then I would've lost my schooling but well I am still in school and I can finish it. The only thing is,.... my mom hates my boyfriend and doesn't think he's acceptable. He's no longer allowed to see me and my mom says I'm moving to get away from him and have the kid in another state.....What can I do?. I've heard that in Moore, Oklahoma you can be emancipated once the kid is born, or that I can get emancipated when I'm 16 but that costs a lot of money. I need help?

Stay in school and get a job is the only advice I have for you.



ETA: As for the emancipation, they don't just go doing that to any teenager. You have to prove that you are 100% capable of not only taking care of yourself and a child.

All I can say is best of luck to you! Get "What to Expect the First Year." It will help you.

You are still early in your pregnancy, she has time to come around. Everyone has to have the shock wear off. In the mean time just grin and bear it. You might look into resources in your area as far as pregnancy counselling etc, a lot of times they offer classes and can help you get baby gear etc. Google is your friend. I'm glad to see you are so...levelheaded? maybe?...about all of this. I'd be shitting bricks. Good luck OP!

Honestly I'd do what your mom says and accept any help she and your dad gives you. Stay in school, get a job. Don't worry about being emancipated. Seriously, you have enough "adult" responsibility to deal with right now. BG is a good place for parenting advice also the hospital you're delivering at probably has parenting classes that will be offered to you. But babies don't come with instruction manuals and a lot of parenting will be trial and error.

I agree with all of this.
