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?
All I can say is best of luck to you! Get "What to Expect the First Year." It will help you.
I'd stay both stay in school, and both get a job...
Quoting Jas ♥:" Stay in school and get a job is the only advice I have for you. ETA: As for the emancipation, they don't ... [snip!] ... 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."
I would stay in school and get a job ASAP ! Good luck
Go to DHS, and get WIC and soonercare. Thats me assuming you dont have insurance though. Also if you need http://www.oklahomavirtualhighschool.com/index.html. Thats our online highschool....its free btw. PM if you need any advice or anything, good luck
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.

Well I'm trying to get a job and find transportation but Most of the jobs in Moore are taken. I know braums is hiring but i need to be 16. I have a big support group in my Family and my bf's Family and also a lot of my friends from school are buying me baby things. I try to stay levelhead and try to find every option possible and see which option is more acceptable and easier without drama. but thank you and I'll look into all the Groups and Hospitals and Google bar.
yeahh. Thank you a lot. I really needed help on this to see others opinions and things. but thank you a lot :) i appreciate everything :)
Quoting Jas ♥:" Consider yourself lucky that you have support from both sides. Like someone else said, I wouldn't worry ... [snip!] ... take care of yourself. Just take all of the help that you can from your family and your bf's family. You're going to need it."

You can do it. It will be difficult but you need to focus on your education and being a great mother. This child will need you! It will be hard but it CAN be done.
i was 16 when i got pregnant and my parents were very supportive my mom said that pushing my baby daddy away would just be harder on me and my baby. if your baby daddy is willing to be there for his baby you should sit your mom down calmly and tell her mom i understand that you are trying to help me but do you really think keeping the baby away from his or her dad is the right thing to do. as for the teen parenting thing its something you will worry about your whole pregnancy will i be a good mom? will i be able to do the things i need to do? they answer is yes as long as you always put your babys needs and wants before your own. for me it was just something that kicked in once my son was born my baby daddy is in the picture and he works so i can go to school. i am now 18 and my son is 18 months im in my second semister of college and doing great!!! alot of teen moms i know who dont have their baby daddy around are going to school and working which is hard cause you have to be away from your baby alot but there is also online schooling which i am doing right now so i can stay home with my son and its very nice!! people say being a teen parents is hard and make it look impossible but let me tell you what i have never been happier. my son is sooo amazing and gets everything he needs and wants.yes sometimes it sucks to see my friends going off to college while im home doing online classes but then i look at my son and its not so hard anymore.i would say just talk to you mom tell her how she is hurting you by not letting you see your baby daddy and its making it harder for you cause youll have to support your baby alone. tell her calmly and like an adult and maybe she will think about your feelings rather than her own...also look up some of the statisics on teen mom who have the support of their parents and those who dont she might just change her mind....oh and i live in missouri and here you are automaticlly empancipated when you have a baby. so i would look into that.
