Any pregnant ladies feel like their partner is unhappy with the pregnancy ?

I am 6 months pregnant & my partner & I are expecting a boy, our first baby. Throughout my whole pregnancy so far, he has been supportive in little ways & I do appreciate it but recently he has been withdrawn, it almost feels like our son & I are no longer his focus. He spends more time away with his mates & when I confront him about how I feel about this, he still insists on going to his mate's place. I get that guys need their guy time, but where does that leave me & our son ? I had an antenatal appointment yesterday for the first time at the hospital & instead of coming, he chose to stay at his mates place. I sat in the clinic & my heart broke when I saw all these dads coming in with their partners for their appointment & I can't help but think of my poor son. Is it stress causing him to act this way ? or is it because he isn't ready to be a father ? I'm trying to be positive & happy because my son deserves that.
