Ice Breaker

There should be a non-awkward ice breaker for pregnant people.  Now that I'm 5 months along, my little baby bump seems obvious but I guess not quite so obvious that the acquaintance you bump into in the lobby of your building is going to say, "Hey, Congratulations!"    So as I rode up the elevator this morning with a someone I'd known for 5 years, but don't know well, I didn't quite know how to break the ice....   "Did you know I'm pregnant?" --- seemed a little self-absorbed.   "It's a boy" ---- rather abrupt.   Instead we just talked about the weather and I'm sure when he got off at his floor, he was glad to be out....
