Your result is:

You might want to rethink having a baby right now. 

Having a child is a huge life-changing choice. It is okay to wait until you are fully ready, rather than have one early because you feel obligated to. Take time to enjoy life without kids and prepare for the future at your own pace. Starting a family is not a choice anyone should ever feel rushed into doing.
