I've been around some babies lately and have not felt the desire to have another. Occasionally I feel sad I won't ever get to be pregnant again (I really enjoyed being pregnant, it was one of the few times my body felt truly in balance and happy- no issues with skin, mood, etc.) but that does not translate into desire to have a baby.
