Suddenly broody again?

I always wanted a big family if I was lucky enough. But having had 2 kids I found it much harder than I thought - I struggled with PND and felt very lonely for a long time. But that passed. DH always only ever wanted two so I happily accepted this would be our family unit. Recently I've not felt quite right, so I did a pregnancy test to rule that out (I am on a very effective contraception so it was doubtful buy say,proms were similar) as it resembled how things felt when I conceived. But when it was negative, I felt a definite twinge of disappointment and now that feels it's niggling at me. DH is resolute on no more kids so I haven't talked about this as I'm wondering if it will pass, but it's on my mind at the moment. I am 37 so not getting any younger, and my eldest starts school next year.

Has anyone else had this and is it a phase?!

Bumping for you op so that someone can come on and say how it passes with no side effects. We have 2 dc, I want another and dp doesn't. An anti-broody pill would be goo right now.

I have 2 dc I only wanted 2 and my eldest has just started school too.
But I am sooo broody rite now! . My DH is happy with our 2 or he'd be happy to have a third so he's not the issue.
I also found have 2 stressful and manic and they are close in age so when I keep thinking about having a third I think do I really want to go through that again!!
I'm hoping the feeling will pass (soon!!!)
