18 And Need Some Guidance Please

looking for guidance - July 15

I'm 18 years old and I've been with my boyfriend for 6 months. We had a pregnancy scare about 2 months ago and since then, I haven't been able to get the idea of having a baby out of my head. I want one SO badly. He also wants one, but we both know it's better if we wait. We are planning on getting engaged in a year and married in two. After that, we were going to have a baby about a year later. (We'll be able to live on his income alone so I'll be able to stay with the baby whenever I'm not in class...after I get out of college, I probably won't be home as much so we want to have a baby while I'm in school.) Anyway, that was our plan but I just can't seem to stop thinking about having a baby now. I know if we did have one now, I would never regret it. We would be able to support it and have time for it and everything. I guess what I'm looking for is for people to tell me what the advantages are of waiting for another 3 years rather than having one now. I really need help putting this desire to have a baby on the back burner because I'm trying to do the more responsible thing. I really appreciate any comments.
