Your priority needs to be your baby, not the balancing act.
Your DH needs to get a clue. But it sounds like there may be something at work stressing him out. In the meantime, there's a whole person you two are now reasponsible for, so while he may need to adjust to that idea, he can't dilly-dally about it, because you don't really get the option of thinking it over once baby is already there. The baby has needs that have to be met now by both of you. There's no letting that go while adjusting to the idea. It's a crash course, to be sure, but that's the way it is.
And, as others have mentioned, find other moms. They're your colleagues and their company could be a life-saver.

Also, have him read this thread.
