唐人社区-北美华人论坛-外国人在中国版-Pregnancy Due Date|
I was listening to some lessons related to pregnancy. From those lessons, I learned a couple of ways a woman can say she's pregnant, like 我有了 and 我懷孕了, for example. I also learned from an example sentence in the Pleco Chinese-English dictionary that you can say 懷孕五個月了 to mean "to be 5 months pregnant".
Now, what I'm wondering about is how people ask the due date in Chinese (and how you might answer if you were asked)? I'm also wondering if asking when the due date is, is even common (or not) in Chinese culture among native Chinese speakers?
Among native English speakers where I live at least, it seems like the first thing most people say after being told the news that you're expecting a baby is: "Congratulations! When are you due? (Or when is your wife due?)" A typical reply might be, "Thank you. I'm (or she's) due at the end of December." Do native Chinese speakers usually say something like this? And how would they say it?
Thank you for your help and the discussion.
