    I will have a baby in June - to be pregnant or give a birth to?

    I will have a baby in June.

    Does it mean I will be pregnant or give a birth to ?

    Without more context, I would take it to mean give birth, though am having/going to have sound more natural to me.

    Even more natural to me would be, "My baby is due in June".

    Or even I'm due in June'. Both are common.
