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 have an 8yo and one on the way. I don't regret her - ever - but I'll admit I lament my simple, easy, hassle-free life when the going gets tough.

No. They stress me out for sure, but I don't regret having them. A big family is important to me. I only have two now and one on the way, but I think I'll go to four. When they are being extra bad I just remind myself they won't be little forever. Then I'll get to enjoy grand babies!

And by all accounts grand babies are so much better than bio children! My mom is in heaven with my dd, but we, her dear children, have stressed her to no end :)

I regret not living enough before having my kids so that I wouldn't be thinking so often about what I want to do vs what I can do while being a good mom.  I basically moved out of my parents house in with my then bf and 6 months later I was pg.  I didn't get a chance to be independant or really live my own life for myself.  Now I'm living for them and that isn't going to change.  

I suppose that if I had waited I would have done ahead and gotten fixed and they would never have been here lol.  I was just waiting out the time period the dr gave me before doing the proceedure

I wish I could have had more than my 3 boys. Of course my answer might change at 3am...
