Hi, Jaze, my fellow March Mama!
With my first pregnancy I developed a theory. I don't know how sound it is, but just based on how my friends IRL did towards the end of their pregnancies, this is what I observed.
No matter if you go "early" or "late" we all seemed to just enter a "funk" about 2 weeks before giving birth. The "funk" included more intense feelings that we had experienced during the 3rd trimester, just at heightened levels. The "funk" feelings included depressed feelings, so uncomfortable in our bodies, exhaustion yet unable to sleep well, just feeling out of it, not wanting to see people or talk to them, inability to concentrate to the Nth degree, feeling unbalanced health/emotion wise, etc.
The theory I developed was that when you get into that "funk" you've got two weeks to get things in order. Yet, usually you don't have any ability to do anything other than making sure you take a nap when you can and relax as much as possible.
