At least that's the way I've used it and heard it used. On the other hand, I can see this as a place where the we vs. she would come in. "We are pregnant" or "We got pregnant" strikes me as being a "wanted" thing, right off. It's weirdness. I have mixed feelings about the "we are pregnant" thing. I understand it, but then there's the technicality that pregnancy is a physical process of women. "We are expecting" avoids that, but also sounds like a corny euphemism. I blame English; it needs better words. ~*~ Mia.
