Oh yes. We tried for almost two years for our third baby. The problem for me was my wife only wanted to try when the calendar said we should or when the ovalation test said so. It all felt very mechanical and pressured. Like you say it was unromantic and didn’t help us feel closer as a couple. Sure I thought I wanted the baby but it wasn’t enjoyable just stressful. Really stressful. To the point I was seriously questioning if I really wanted to have another baby. We talked about it and decided to stop using the ovulation test, and calendar and just let it happen. Everything improved and wasn’t so stressful anymore. Anyway I don’t have too much advice but you definitely aren’t alone feeling that. And don’t worry too much about two kids. It’s really nice to have a sibling to play with the other one.
