Did you ever have second thoughts about having kids?

I spent a long time not sure if I would ever have kids because I was afraid that I would pass on a few hereditary deceases that my family has. 

Did you have second thoughts before having kids? Why?

Nope pregnant with my 3rd. At time do they drive me crazy and do I pine for the "good ole days" before them...well yes. I love being a mom and am happy with my choices.

I have second thoughts every time my 4 week old screams (colic and acid reflux, poor baby). We aren't having any more. Two is enough for us.

Yes. If given a do over. I wouldn't have children. I love them more than anything. I love my grandchild. And I was a pretty terrific mother. But it was hard and I should have lived a different life.

Yes. I never wanted kids.
Why? If I never had them I wouldn't be married

I'm "Mrs. Mom" and have second thoughts pretty regularly, generally while I'm stuck homeschooling or in dire need of a nap. On the outside, it looks like I'm a pro.

I think I'm the same way at times. My kids are my world but my world would have been different without them. I'm not sure if it would have been better though. I always wanted kids too.

I did have second thoughts before having kids because of all of the problems people have nowadays with the father of the kid or sharing custody of the kids or the father running off when the woman is pregnant.
