What idioms do you have in your country for being pregnant?
I don't know any more idioms about being pregnant from my country... There are some I never hear in your list... In the pudding club, that is nice and funny but I never be in the pudding club... :)
It's an interesting one! We have many idioms and slang words for pregnancy because many years ago the British were too shy or embarrassed to actually talk about pregnancy and giving birth. We made up many silly idioms to mean the same thing!
Thank you. It seems to be the same thing in my country many years ago...
It's a clever play on words by the writer. If you are rolling in it (idiom) - you are very rich. We don't usually use rolling in for other things. The writer has combined this idiom, the song title and Adele's pregnancy to create this phrase!
Silly answers really make me laugh Vero :)
I dont quite get the meaning of " baby and womb" pic :)
pregnant woman usually cravings food, and sometimes crave at the unusual hour.
in this picture, the expectant woman waken up his husband at three in the morning because she carve for some hot wings.
the painter imagine the carve actually came from the hungry baby in her womb.
Very funny =)
Haha. The first set of sentences must have been written by a man!
Womb service. A good way to remember the pronunciation of this word. It rhymes with room.
I love using " they are expecting their first child ! " and " I'm eating for two " :)
I dont think these idioms are silly teacher , hehe :)
Are there any special idioms for pregnancy in Vietnam?
I'm not sure about that. When a woman is pregnant we commonly say : oh, she is pregnant ; or she has a baby ; or they are expecting their first child like in English, that's all I know, nothing special :)
