Practical language

Language is awesome. The more I learn the more amazed I am at its beauty. Like euphemisms and expressions. I love how there are so many ways to convey the same thing.

Here's a list of my most recent, favorite expressions is English and Japanese:

I'm Eating for two.
I have a bun in the oven.
I'm in the family way.
I'm with child.
I'm craving pickles and ice cream.
We're expecting.
I'm preggers.
I'm knocked up.
My eggo is preggo.
I'm on stork watch.
I'm gestating.
I'm preggtastic.
妊娠しています(Ninshin shite imasu)

Yep, it's true. There's a baby on the way!
