    There are two things I regret the most but I'm not going to share them. But they are something I wish I could change with all my heart.

    Another big regret is all the time I wasted thinking that I wanted my marriage to work. So much time wasted on someone very undeserving.

    I just wanted to say. What you went through was not your fault. It is never the victim fault.
    Hugs.

    This is such a hard one. I'm 43 and have done a lot but often wish I'd had my kids in my 20s so I didn't feel so god damn old.

    It's hard to select just 1.

    I wish I'd never dropped out of high school.
    I wish I never gotten engaged to my ex.
    There's two, I could list off many more!

    Maybe a happy medium? I wonder if there is a magic age?

    I had my first child at 21. And ive been trapped inside the special needs bubble ever since. Ive never been on a plane, we've been on one family holiday in that 10 years. We dont own a house, hubby cant find a permanent full time teaching job. So lame. Should have got it all sorted before them.

    I wished we had saved up more and had purchased a house or at least was more on our way before DD was born. Or at least hadn't spent nearly $10,000 on what we had saved up on god knows what.

    I don't know if I wish we had waited until later to have kids (25 with DD and now 28 with this bub), but I wish I had been a bit more set up.

    I would change lots of things! But my biggest regret right now is being induced with ds. I'm currently stuck in this hate bubble. I have PTSD which is triggered by the smallest things. A good friend just told us his wife is pregnant with their second and I couldn't be happy for them. I cried on and off the entire day. I'm now torn between continuing my nursing/mid studies or changing my career path. How would I be any good at my job if I was just completely jealous of vaginal birthing women?!

    I would have gone to uni out of highschool before having kids, looking at going now but the thought of all the organising the kids and time to go and work it exhausts me

    I think 29/30 would have been good for me but infertility threw a curve ball at those plans.

    I saw your other posts. Sucks what's happening with your DH's work. I hope you guys get a break soon.
