Dear ???
Pregnancy is an important and joyous occasion in a couples life and thus has impacts on many aspects of the relationship including sexual contact. Sex during pregnancy is always practiced by couples and is safe unless there are complications . One of them is vaginal bleeding which could lead to risk of miscarriage. This puts a lot of pressure on the couple as guilt about not pleasuring the partner becomes an issue. The previous miscarriages also puts your pregnancy into a risk state and therefore you would require careful counselling on the risks of sex and other ways in which pleasuring can occur without penile vaginal intercourse.
There are certain sects who do not have sex with a pregnant female for fear of harming the baby but you have to look at all of these with your partner so that you both can make an informed decision regarding sex .

I think your husband is just decent. He does not want to shoot sperm in baby' s face.

No it is not common. There is nothing as beautiful as a pregnant woman. Tell your husband that you have needs the same as he do and that he must cuddle &  play with you. There are lots of ways to enjoy sex without haveing intercourse
