It can only be a verb is something masculine can be pregnant. But this
can happen in figurative language, as apparently in Psalm 7:14 (7:15 in
Hebrew) which is interesting to compare with Isaiah 7:14. (By the way,
the subject line here is about Isaiah, not the Psalm.)
> What would BH require for "Here is the young woman who is/that is pregnant"?
You would need an extra he, hinne(h) ha`alma(h) hahara(h).
By the way, I agree with your conclusion that the young woman was known
to Ahaz, and the general thrust (not every detail) of your argument
