Normal to feel disconnect from partner in pregnancy?

I'm not sure if its hormones or what but I feel totally disconnected from him. Our relationship was great, amazing connection

And we decided to start a family and now I'm wondering if we rushed it. We aren't as intimate as we used to be and it's not coming from my end. I wish we did have sex more often and connect the way we did before pregnancy. Yes sex isn't the only aspect of our relationship

But I would like to feel some connection and that he is still attracted to me 8 months into pregnancy. He says he has a lot of things on his mind as far as the baby, buying a house, work, ect.

Basically what should I do? We have had a conversation but it didn't really lead anywhere. I'm now sleeping on the couch or spare room to avoid awkward feelings.

Well, pregnancy changes a lot for the women especially, but also a lot for the man. Anticipation for supporting a new life, and raising another human is overwhelming. Also watching your partner change so much, and be so uncomfortable can be hard. To be honest, everything you have described sounds pretty normal. I hate to be the one to tell you, but nothing will ever be the same as it once was. Bringing a baby into the world seriously changes everything. It doesn't have to be for the bad, but it all depends on how you want things to be.
