Not likely. If you are talking about an interview at a U.S. consulate, no.

    Priority Dates for family-based immigration visas generally are established by types of family relationships. The Visa Bulletin, issued by the U.S. Department of State, identifies those types of relationships and their corresponding Priority Date categories: http://www.travel.state.gov/visa/bulletin/bulletin_5712.html There is change in category and its Priority Date achieved through pregnancy.

    Short answer, No, these are set by statute, and nobody other than Congress has authority to change the law, and there are no waivers or discretionary authority to depart from the numerical limitations. I have attached a copy of the U.S. Department of State Visa Bulletin for the month of June 2012, and an explanation of the visa numerical control or quota system for your reference.
