What is considered to be the legal adult age when you are pregnant?

I am pregnant and am only 15 years old and was wondering if I am considered to be an adult.

In most cases you will not be considered an adult. You still won't be old enough to drive, vote, drink, purchase property. You will, however, be considered the childs legal guardian and will have the right to make decisions regarding the childs welfare.

You are considered an adult if you have reached the legal age for whatever state you live in, regardless of whether or not you are a parent. You do not have to be an adult to be a parent.

No. By state law even though you are having a child, you are not considered an adult. You are considered when you reach the age of consent, which is 18. Or by what ever age your state law says is the age to be considered an adult.
