  • Either with the boy who got you pregnant, or a womens center.

  • First off, you shouldn't get pregnant at 16 no matter how mature you think you are. Second, there are a few places you could go.. but if I were you, I would listen to what your parents have to say first, they only care about you, you know, no matter how cliche that may sound. If that just does not work for you, then call planned parenthood and ask them about your options.

  • There are homes for unwed teens across the nation. If you have a local Pregnancy Support Center, call them and tell them of your plight. Sometimes those have lists of folks who are willing to open their homes to girls like you and who will allow you to live there until your baby is born.

  • Call or go talk to CPS. Your parents are responsible for you tell you are 18. Or go to the police

  • Anon, what is the use in telling her she shouldn't have when she already is? Her parents kicked her out, that is what she said!
    Hun, try to google womens center in your area or a house for pregnant teens with no where to go. A friend maybe until you decide what to do. I know that if my daughter had a friend in your predicament, I would help her out until you found a permanent place. I know you are probably freaking out but everything will work out, good luck!

  • Your parents can say your the one out of control and put you in foster care. Then you will have to behave and prove yourself or they will take your baby.

  • anon, I stand corrected, but telling her what she should have done was wrong. She came here for some advice and comfort not reprimand.

  • I'm sure they don't mean to be rude or unwelcome. Give them sometime to assimilate the news. Can you stay at your aunt or grandma house? otherwise just stay until they open the door for you.

  • if i were in your situation, i'd stay with a friend or the father of the child until i found a more permanent solution. and i'd definitely try to work things out by talking to your parents. be humble & acknowledge that you made a mistake & that you've probably disappointed them, and don't argue with whatever they have to say (no matter how much it may upset you, just let them vent, they have feelings too.) let them know where you stand on this pregnancy (do you want to keep it, adopt, etc... ) and say you're hoping for their help and understanding. if they can't accept what you've chosen & still kick you out, then look for a women's shelter or find other resources that will help you get through this. good luck.
