Umm...I'm from Australia. And I understand the term as some guy has gotten someone pregnant. I'm not sure how else it vould be interpreted.
That's how I'd understand it. But the British use it to mean "to drop in, or call, on her". Sorry - as an expat and teacher of English as a foreign language, I have a lot of contact with native English-speakers from all over the world, and we're always comparing notes and laughing about misunderstandings. I once remarked to a colleague from Liverpool that I thought I was getting "sick", meaning I felt I was coming down with something, and his response was to grab a waste paper basket and hold it in front of me - his interpretation was that I thought I was going to "puke" (vomit)!
