Broody

I still get broody. I have children. I can''t have anymore but still get broody. I am in my early forties. Is this normal?

It's not abnormal. Sometimes it's worth exploring with a counsellor what aspects of "having children" your broodiness resounds to - being pregnant, actually mothering a larger family, missing the time when your children where younger, perhaps more dependent, or what. Maybe helping out with a children's charity or similar activity could be satisfyinbg ?
