How long do I have to wait to have sex after a umbilical hernia repair?

Check it out . Best to ask the doc who did the surgery. If ther were complications may have to wait longer.
Activity as tolerate. I tell my patients to resume all activity as tolerated by pain and discomfort. There are however many factors influencing this decision, such as size of hernia, size of patient, and technique of repair to name a few. Best to check with your surgeon to find out about your specific case. Hope this helps!
Ask your surgeon. When to resume intercourse and exercise after surgery depends on the type of surgical repair and how complicated it was. Any extra activity/exercise that hurts a lot should also be avoided until cleared to do so. Ask your surgeon.

I need to have an umbilical hernia repair. Nobody seems to be able to answer whether I should fix it now or wait until I am finished having children.

Depends on severity. Hernias require repair to prevent complications or worsening. If a lump is getting stuck in the hernia and can't be pushed back into the abdomen (reduced) it may contain intestine which could be dangerous. But if it is just an interesting finding on exam and is a little sore, it should probably wait until after last pregnancy since stretching the repaired area may make the repair fail again.

What is the recovery for lapriscopic umbilical hernia repair. How long are you swollen from gas. Recovery restrictions?

Depends . most surgeons agree that maximum strength of your repair reached in 6 weeks. Some surgeons allow laparoscopic repairs to lift normally right away,but limited data to support this.

Variable. The actual cost depends on the technique of repair, type of anesthesia, and location of repair. One thing to be sure however is that the quality of the repair is not figured in to the cost.
