6 year old boy refusing to go sleep without someone near him

My six year old boy normally goes to bed well, he has his routine and then kiss goodnight and walk out. We are now a week out from bub number three ( I think the changes are playing on his mind ?) and my hubby is having to sit with him and then he wakes up in the middle of the night and screams and cries if no one stays with him then wakes up at 5am and does the same! We have tried reassuring and checking on him with a timer every 5 mins, he screams and cries the whole time and it takes hours! We have read many books on talking about feelings, change and new babies etc. nothing seems to be helping, working. I really don't know what to do for him. Thank you for your time
