    Which one is correct?

    Since our marriage in 2000, we never had a child other than this pregnancy. Since our marriage in 2000, we don't have a child before this pregnancy.

    Typically if someone asks "do you have any children" and you're pregnant, you say "I'm expecting". We don't talk about pregnancy as having a child.

    Also the "since our marriage" part makes the sentence confusing. Did you have children before your marriage in 2000?

    How about:

    We got married in 2000 and now we're expecting our first child.
