In most places and circumstances you will have to be 18 to become responsible for yourself unless you get emancipated. If you were able to get married you would still be considered a minor, but would not be bound by your parents. However, no one can tell you what to do about being pregnant. You are in charge when it comes to the decisions affecting you and your unborn child.

If a boy is married at 17 with his parents' permission is that called emancipation and is he considered an adult as his wife is 19?

Theoretically yes but in a way you by default become under the supervision of her parent(s) or guardians and if you are still a minor (under 21) when she becomes an adult considering what you described she would become your legal guardian until your 21st birthday but if your parents authorized it there should be no problems for you to worry about. In most states (and maybe in all) when you *legally* marry you automatically become emancipated. Therefore, you would not come under the supervision of her parents or of her. You are considered to be an emancipated minor and therefore responsible for yourself.
