I can't stop thinking about having a baby

I feel so down at the moment.
I'm 16 and I have been with my boyfriend for 4 years. We're really close and we have a really good relationship. We've spoke about having a baby but I just know it isn't the right decision at this time in both of our lives.
Im 16 and he's 19 so we're both still young but I just can't stop thinking about having a child and just wish I could make the decision and be the right one.
I know what I want but I know it's wrong for the time being.

Editor's Comment

I think you are wise to think about this decision carefully, and if is not the best time for you at the moment it is better to wait until you know you can give you anbd your partner the best chance at being good parents. It is also important to wait until you can give your baby a secure, stable home. Often maternal and paternal instincts make you feel you want to try for a baby, but you will feel happier and more fulfilled if you wait until other things are in place. Please ring the helpline if you would like to talk this through with someone 0300 4000 999.
