  • you would have to have a co-signer. Also you would have to prove you could pay the loan back... plus a good credit score. IF you have all of those then you should be fine. Dont stress everything you need you will get.

  • no you can't. you are not old enough to be held accountable or to sign legal documents

  • Look for cloth diapers, baby clothes, a bassinet or crib at second hand shops, on craigslist and on freecycle; breastfeed (it's free); as soon as your child is born, file for child support (if the father is under 18, his parents will be responsible.

    It is not too late to consider adoption; your baby may be better off with a stable, two parent family with the financial resouces to feed, clothe and educate your baby.

    Good luck to both of you.
