I think you should consider school, and marriage first. raising a child at eighteen is extremly difficult as well as it takes a major toll on your body. i had my first child at eighteen, trust me, its easier to have a baby when you are in your tweenties. my advice would be wait a few more years, are you prepared for a special needs, child, there is no guareentee it will be healthy, i ate everything i should, took vitamins, did'nt drink, did'nt smoke, saw my doctor regualarly and well, i got a child who need major surgies, a feeding tube, oygen , etcc. it was nothing i did, it was just the way god made my baby, he now has autism as well, sometimes things don't turn out as you plan them too, no one could have prepared us for our journey with our son, he is a blessing, but it involves extensive medicial care, expensive therpy, schools, lots of medication some not covered by insurance, patience, giving up your entire life, if your child is prone to stopping breathing, the last thing you do is leave them with daycare, babysitters of even family, i have a very large family, but they will be just as unprepared as you. i was told during my pregnancy my child was perfectly healthy, sometimes that is not true, and just like you i was 18. never think that it can't happen, i never considered what could happen, and no matter what i say to you now, could not describe what it means to have a child with special needs, it means spending most of the first few years in doctor offices, or hospitals, or around the clock care, it meen giving up all your social life. there is never a guareentee, my son is almost nine now, and it is still alot of work and commitment.
