Everything that follows is spoiler-related, so stop now if you haven't seen the movie.
As to the question of the pregnancy, isn't there a scene in Superman II where Lois and Clark are seen together in bed? Seems like there was at least the implication that they consumated their relationship. (This is the problem with billing a film as a sequel to two movies made two decades ago.)
Personally, I thought the kid thing was a waste of time. What was the point? I exected it to tie together in the end, but it never did, except to give Superman someone to make goo-goo eyes at during the overlong ending. And maybe to set up a sequel series.
I was shocked at how poor this movie was. Half the plot made no sense. The use of Kryptonite was entirely inconsistent, and the motivations of the characters were baffling. Why would Superman leave so abruptly, even if the remains of Krypton were found? Clearly he told the staff at the Planet that he was leaving, but he didn't explain it to Lois? What did he expect to find, other than a huge mass of Kryptonite? Then he returns in some sort of spaceship, but from where? Did he fly there in that thing? If so, why the dramatic return?
I'll skip over the rest of the inconsistencies, except for the big one at the end: How is it that Superman is nearly killed by Kryptonite time and again, yet manages to hurl a continent
of it into space?
All that said, I liked the setpieces of the movie very much. The shuttle sequence was spectacular, and the encounter with the machine gunner was great. (Though I had to wonder why the thieves would be so crazy as to start gunning down the cops like that. Why?) I also enjoyed the Jimmy Olsen character, and I was surprised at how much I liked Routh as Superman.
Ah well. I'm hoping the Pirates of the Carribean sequel will be better.

*SPOILER ALERT AGAIN*
It's implied that Clark Kent as Superman had an intimate relationship with Lois before he disappeared. The audience finally knows why she's so pissed beyond him just leaving. My only problem with this is that apparently she started dating (and also being intimate) with Cyclops there soon after he left if she thinks it's his. But then, that could just be Lois for you.
