  "She had been pregnant before I traveled"

  "She had been pregnant when I traveled"

 

   Both, okay.

 

  Worth noticing that "she had been" denotes that she is pregnant up to now (she is pregnant to this day); whereas "she was pregnant" denotes that the pregnancy phase is over.

 

  This is why we cannot judge isolated sentences presented to us, there is no 'right' or 'wrong' way, not knowing the rationale around (in other words, context).
