You can make it at 16. Look up the obgyns in your town online, find one that sounds good, and just call them. Tell them you need to make a new patient appointment, and they will guide you through it. Good luck hun!

Do you have insurance? If not you may want to look into a rainbow clinic at a hospital.

Just make an appointment with a doctor and they'll give you a blood test, height, weight, may book you for an ultrasound, ask for your history and ask how everything's going. If you have free health care everything will be covered :)

No you should just be able to give them your social and they can look it up. Have you considered telling your mom first though?.... It might help to have someone with you.

I would be sure todo some research before you make an appointment. Especially with the free health care. There are some doctors whose goal is to see as many patients as possible, bot to spend time with each one.

Fyi your mom may get a statement for these services even if its free so she might find out and that's not the way to tell her. and not every doctor accepts every insurance. Sounds like u need an adult you can trust to help you.

You should tell your mom, she can help you and your going to start showing any time, your mom will know what to do... How do you know your 14 wks if you haven't been to the doc? But you def need to go ASAP because you need prenatal vitamins and all kinds of stuff to make sure your baby gets the proper care to be healthy

K well you won't know for sure till you have an ultrasound, you could have had implantation bleeding and mistaken it as a period that's what happened to me.
