Do you regret having kids?

Does anyone actually regret having kids? I'm sure there are some people who do, so feel free to go anon if you are afraid of being judged. 

If you regret having kids, tell me why? Or...do you regret the number of kids you have and why?

I regret the NUMBER of kids...sometimes. Like in the middle of the night when they all have rotovirus, sheets are pooped on, babies crying everywhere type of thing. However, if I had not continued trying for lil Emi for so long, I'd never had the chance to have a baby girl. It took four kids! I try to think I should not have had so many boys but I could never imagine my life without each of them in it. This is a hard question.

I regret having 3. I miss it being just me & my daughter. We had more money, less stress, and actual time to spend 2gether. I wish the last 2 could live w their dad but he's mentally ill & attempting to fight me for custody although he hasn't seen them in 3 yrs. They have no idea who he is!

No. I adore them both. My 5 year old can be difficult at times, but I love my life as mom!

Honestly no but I knew I had a choice (no issues with abortion) and even though its hard I wouldn't change him for anything in the world.

Nope - no regrets here.  I can't imagine life without each and every one of my 5 kids.  Growing up I knew I would be a mother -- before marriage, DH and I discussed how many children we wanted.  Everything has worked out exactly as I had always hoped.

no regrets. maybe if I could go back I would change the order in which they were born, and maybe the time frame. space them all out by 2 years. but I don't regret anyone of my kids. but I can say if I would have had the twins first, it probably would have been my last lol
