i think its good. i would take out the last part about asking about when she is due and that her belly looks cute. if she is as clingy as you made her sound, she will latch onto that and keep trying to connect with you

I wouldn’t take it as anything more than she just wants to be nice.  I get not really wanting her to go to the trouble of getting you a gift, and I think that your reply is nice!

Yes that looks good and it shows you are courteous – like u’re not just giving her your address to get gifts

it looks like she’s expecting a child – so to save yourself the trouble of not buyinbg her a baby gift in return, you should decline.

Your message sounds good. I think you did a great job of being polite and nice, but not giving too much. 

Besides the facebook awkwardness, I hope you’re enjoying the time before your big day. Congrats!
