  • Give it time. I had the same thing after having 3 kids in 4 years. It is very normal. When the kids get a little older you will be glad you had it done. I promise. :-)

  • Had one and no regrets. However I knew I was done with babies when my last one was born five years ago. Yeah sometimes I think it would be nice to have another baby, but it's not going to happen and I'm ok with that.

  • i had one 11 yrs ago. I have had moments or a few days here and there - when I did regreat it. BUT now, I feel like I'm on the downhill slide of seeing my kids all grown-up and looking forward in grandkids in the not so near feture, but still looking forward to it.
    I could not imagaion having a 3 or 4 yr old now...If i'd been able to have another baby, when the feeling where there.
    Hang in there...
    A friend just had his first Grandson, I got to hold and play with the baby & got my baby fix....

  • If us women did not yearn to have babies, the species would end. :o) Give yourself a break. You do have a choice however to dwell on the regret or move on from it. I hope you find a way to do that. Best weshes.

  • No I've never regretted it

    Answer by admckenzie at 8:27 PM on Jul. 6, 2011

  • I have had mine for 3.5 years. I have never truly regretted it though there are times I miss my kids being babies- I have no desire to add to my family. Our family is complete- no doubt.

  • Well it's only been 4 months since I had my twin boys (had the tubal done at the same time) so it's way soon to start having any doubts, but i'm sure there are going to be moments where I wish I hadn't We also have a beautiful 4 year old daughter and a 2 year old son aside from the twins so I knew that it was def time to do it.
