Dr appointment

Hey guys, I need some help from anyone with experience. I am about 7 weeks so I'm just getting started and I just turned 18 last week. My bf and I are still in high school and I haven't told my parents yet. My mom doesn't have health insurance on me but I feel like I should start going for check ups. I'm not sure what to do. Should I just read baby books or go sign up for insurance? I don't really have the money to pay for it each month either.

You can get insurance through your state.

Yeah u can apply for insurace through your state.. im not really sure how it all works but i dont think they can deny care when your pregnant then again to me its common since that they would help anyways but like i said im not to sure. But u should call around and ask because if u dont have them you'll definitely need some type of prenatal care.
