Feeling so low.

Hello all,
So this is very new to me. I have had 5 fairly straightforward pregnancies & now have 5 great kids. I am 37 weeks pregnant with my last baby & just feel so low. All I want to do is go to bed & sleep, but I obviously can't really do that! I've just finished up at work & should be over the moon but instead I am shattered, sore all the time, feel rubbish & have cried about 10 times this weekend already. My usually strong marriage doesn't feel strong at the moment & I feel so distant from my husband who clearly doesn't know what is going on as I've never been like this before.
I don't really know what I'm asking, other than has anyone been in the same boat? And will I feel normal again soon?!!
Thanks.

I don't think it's abnormal to feel this way, especially as it's DC6.

Rest as much as you can. DH needs to do as much as poss with the kids so you can. If you can explain any of what you're feeling to him and ask for help

And keep an eye on moods, if it doesn't lift after birth, please do ask for help/ check it's not PND

I have just posted a separate one. I am 29 weeks pregnant and feel like that already I have a 3 year old who is keeping me on my toes. I am not sleeping and in pain but can not take t easy or rest as my dd needs me too. My husband is a shift worker and feels he's too tired with work to help (well that's what I think he feel likes!) after a shift he won't come out either us or offer to take dd out so I can rest because he's been working baring in mind I work 3 days a week and when not at work I have dd with me so no rest. I am worried about the low feelings and had pnd with dd. So although j can't give you any advice I can sympathize with you
