We have had unprotected sex

I'm 15 years old and my boyfriend is 18 years old. We have been together for almost three months now.
We have had unprotected sex, it only happened once and he pulled it out before he could cum but I don't know if I'm pregnant or not.
My period is supposed to come soon but it hasn't yet and I'm scared that it won't.
My boyfriend said he won't leave my side every step of the way. He said that he was a huge part of it and that the baby is his responsibility too, but things change..
I trust my grandmother the most and I have talked to her about it and she flipped out for a while. Then she seemed more calm but I have no idea how to tell my mom, she would kill me if she found out.
I feel so stupid because of how I got so carried away and now I'm stuck in a position that I can't escape from. I know for a fact that adoption and abortion for me are not a choice because I don't want to see the baby suffer without a mom or dad. It's not that I don't want the baby, I am just scared because I am too young to care for a child. It was so stupid and immature for me to do that. I don't know what to do and neither does my boyfriend. I need help!

Editor's Comment

The first thing you need to do is to have a pregnancy test done, or buy one from the pharmacy and do it yourself. Pregnancy tests should be accurate about a week after a missed period, but some show up sooner than this a day or two after a missed period. If you are pregnant you will need to work out your support network if you are going to be able to cope with the pregnancy, and looking after a baby. As you have already talked to your grandmother, she may be the easiest person to tell if your test is positive.
