I haven't used "moreover" since Middle School English class. Thanks for reminding me it exists!

I don't think that anyone say moreover any more, perhaps "further more"

why is "anyway, I'm not pregnant" not correct?

I think "anyway I am not pregnant" is correct

More to say...(not native English)? And to add some more yes to my resume... I'm not pregnant

not a good mistake to make, that one!

... but a very welcome response to hear... no doubt.

Depends on the circumstances, actually. If you are unmarried, you'd better not be pregnant, or else you will be subject to shame. If you are already married, people will be happy for you.

When Indonesians greet you, one of the first things they will ask is whether you are married and how many children you have. Family and relationships are very high cultural values.
