very very low libido

I am 35. I have been married for going on 9 years. I have a daughter of 8 and a son of 6, yes they do take all my energy, but when I was in my twenties and before I had my son I had a very high sex drive, straight after having my son, it was totally lost. I am now finding myself avoiding having sex by creeping into bed late at night when my husband is already asleep or faking aches or pains or making excuses that I needed to sleep by the kids for whatever reason, I just feel like I dont want to have sex anymore. At first I would do the fantasing thing but that doesnt even work anymore. Is there any medication that I can take to spur me on a bit, we have tried the hotel thing and that wasnt even exciting me. I dont drink much so to have a couple to drink to egg me on a bit also isnt the solution. We have tried, pornos, I have loads of sex toys, I am starting to think that maybe it is my husband that I dont want anymore, if I think about it now he does not turn me on anymore at all, but hey when I was younger although I was selective about who I slept with my aspirations and expectations were not that high. What can I do. The first two years I put it down to maybe being baby blues but now this is six years on and getting quite ridiculous. Please help!
