I don't think you should do anything with out including your bf in the decision. You both need to be ready for a baby, other wise your baby is going to have a tougher childhood. what if he leaves you and you are a single mom? Even if you can make it on your own financially it's going to be tough on your child to not grow up with out a dad. Even if it turns out that he leaves you but wnats to see his child, it's going to be a tough childhood growing up in 2 house holds. I'm obviously going by the worst circ_mstances, but these are things you need to think about. Besides you are only 20 and have many years left to have kids...what's the hurry? Go out there and have fun!

I agree with Tara. It is an important decision that has to be made and agreed by both you and your b/f because raising a child is a job for life. Also you are still only very young so why not wait a few more years and enjoy your early twenties. I'm also part of the old school that believe that the parents should be joined in marriage b4 children but that just my opinion.
