Wrong for wanting a baby young?

I am 17 years old and I'm thinking of haveing a baby someday soon. I really want a baby and not only am I good with babies and have experience through babysitting my friends babies... and I would be a good mom but the reason I really want one and not wait for when I'm in my 20s or 30s with a husband is because my mom is old and I want her to know her grandchild. Like I want her to be there when I give birth and help me raise my baby. the same thing with my dad.
I don't have to worry about being tied down or anything, I don't travel,(I have my own farm/Business) and I don't have friends, I mostly am at home because I'm homeschooled. I am financially stable, I have my own small APT.
My parents are on board with whatever decision I make but I don’t have a boyfriend or anything to be my baby daddy so how will that work? Also is my birthing plan to unrealistic for my first time? I want an all natural water birth with a midwife. I have a large pain tolerance. Thanks.

Thanks for your question.
You are still a bit young.That is the only point here.I do not discourage you but I think,you should plan all these after attaining your adulthood.Again,you can not plan the process of birth so early and yes,this is unrealistic.There are lots of factors which determines the delivery process and that will be determined by your doctor after your conception.
I hope I was able to address your query. If you have any further problems, please do not hesitate to go to the doctor.
Wishing you all the best.
