I'm 17 years old. I don't really know how to explain it, it's really painful to me to not have a child. I know society frowns on teenage pregnancy but could it really be that wrong if I'm fertile and want it so badly? People say you throw away your future when you have children but what if that's what I want my future to be? What if I want to be a full time mother? My boyfriend also wants me to conceive and if we did right now I wouldn't give birth until after we graduated. I can't explain the constant emotional turmoil I go through for wanting this. I feel like I need this, what should I do?

The feeling of wanting the baby is it all the time or just certain times during the month?

if it's certain times during the month it's hormonal and you can see your doctor about it

Get yourselves through school, good job, house, car, strong stable relationship and financially stable.

You are both young enough to do all that before conceiving.

Get yourself independant first so that when you do have your own family, you are not relying on either set of parents for housing, financial support etc
