If you're from Europe you don't even need a permit, do you?

hmm just realized I never responded to any of this. He ended up moving to the states. Which is funny considering I moved here as an au pair in December. Too bad we couldn't have just switched citizenships :D But ach, o well. Funny how life goes. :D

If you get married you have a for applying a new permit based on family ties. If you go this route, submit the application before your current permit expires. You may stay in Finland while the application is being processed but (like now(?)) you are not entitled to social benefits you should have private health insurance for the processing time as well (nobody checks it, but you (and your then husband) will be in financial trouble if something happens and you are not insured)
Or can I extend the au pair permit?

Basically I'm wondering, If I get married will they extend my residence permit to continuous?
If you are granted a permit (basically if they believe the marriage is genuine - probably quite likely in your case), it will be of the continuous ('A') type (It is not the same as permanent ('P') permit). If you were applying first time based on family ties you'd first get one year and then a four year permit on first extension. I do not know for sure if your existing au pair permit changes that .
Also what documentation should I bring with me so I don't have to come back to the United States?
Download the application forms and read what are required attachments. They want to get copies of your passport and I guess they want to see an extract from the population registration database showing the marriage having taken place (although they have access themselves to it as well). Probably nothing else.

and for a student permit I need to have about 7000 euros. I don't have this kind of money.
You'd need money to live on anyway - just counting on that you can get a part time (even if very recommendable to try) job can be risky. Those who have a student permit aren't entitled to student benefits from the government (those who have a family tie permit are).
Other options please!
Find another job and get an permit based on that. Probably not very easy with (what I assume is) your current educational level.

That is it - family ties (marriage), study or work. No other options.

If you intend to stay in Finland for more than 90 days, you will need a residence permit.
