  • guess what I'm up the Duff I've got a bun in the oven I'm expecting we're

  • having a baby yep these are all ways that you might

  • say I'm pregnant and everyone Anna English here and today

  • we're learning pregnancy vocabulary. During my time of pregnancy I realised

  • that there are lots and lots of words that are very specific to pregnant

  • people and before we discover all that exciting pregnancy vocabulary I just

  • want to say a huge thank you to today's sponsors Cambly. Now Cambly have a

  • very exciting new product which is aimed specifically at young people, as in

  • children, and if you want to hear more about that, if you have young people in

  • your life that you want to help to learn English, then stay tuned till the very

  • end when I'm going to tell you a bit more about that. So let's get started.

  • So the first thing you do if you think that you are up the duff, if you think

  • you're expecting, if you think that you are with child, mmm or that you have a

  • bun in the oven, then you will take a pregnancy test. Once you've taken the

  • test and it comes back as positive hurrah

  • you're pregnant, hopefully you're very happy about that, the next thing you'll

  • do is go to the doctors to find out exactly when your baby is due to arrive.

  • Now the word due is used a lot when talking about baby's expected arrival. So

  • the day when you are expected to give birth to that child is your due date. So

  • throughout your pregnancy the medical professionals will ask when is your due

  • date or when are you due, and as a interested friend or family member you

  • might say "oh you're pregnant how wonderful congratulations. When is the

  • baby due or when are you due?" meaning when are you due to give birth and now

  • that you're pregnant you might refer to yourself as a

  • mum-to-be. I'm a mum to be or if you are the partner of someone who's pregnant you

  • might refer to yourself as a dad-to-be or as a couple you could be parents-to-be

  • To be or not to be? That is the question. Now your pregnancy will last

  • for approximately nine months this is called the term so if your baby gets all

  • the way to nine months, 40 weeks approximately then you are at full term

  • and your baby will hopefully be born full-term. If your baby is born earlier

  • than 37 weeks of pregnancy then your baby is preterm and then we refer to

  • that baby as premature. These nine months are separated into three sections. We

  • have one to three months is the first trimester. The first trimester. The time

  • when you are the most unwell probably. Then we have the time when your bump,

  • your belly really expands and this is the second trimester month four to

  • month six, the second trimester. Then you have the very uncomfortable final

  • trimester which is referred to as the third trimester which is month seven up

  • to month nine. The third trimester. Throughout your pregnancy you are going

  • to suffer with a number of pregnancy symptoms for example fatigue heartburn

  • cramps sleepless nights those types of things but there are a couple of

  • symptoms that are very specific to pregnancy

  • they are morning sickness and this is the nausea that you experience

  • specifically in pregnancy. Morning sickness, and stretch marks. Now stretch

  • marks are the scars and marks that you get on your skin when your skin is

  • expanding with pregnancy. Stretch marks can also be associated with rapid growth

  • or weight gain and as you're gaining weight you are going to need to buy some

  • special clothes. Now these clothes are referred to as

  • maternity wear, maternity wear. And you can describe individual items like

  • maternity jeans and maternity bras maternity leggings, maternity dress. Let's

  • now look at some very common medical terms that you will hear throughout your

  • pregnancy. First off we have placenta, plancenta. The placenta is a very

  • important interface between baby and mother it's where they attach to each

  • other. It's how the mother passes things like oxygen and food and all the stuff

  • the baby needs from her through to the baby and the placenta is attached to

  • the baby via the umbilical cord. Umbilical, umbilical cord. Now the baby is

  • technically referred to as a foetus a foetus which has a different spelling

  • between British and American this is the British spelling a bit weird and the

  • very sensible American spelling. The baby lives very comfortably inside the

  • woman's womb, womb, no b on the end. It's a silent letter the womb or the uterus

  • the uterus and inside the womb they are surrounded by amniotic fluid, amniotic

  • fluid, which keeps them safe, protected from infections and protected from

  • getting bumps and bashes when mum bangs her tummy into things because she's

  • clumsy. Now the opening to the womb which allows the baby to come out eventually

  • is called the cervix, the cervix. And on a very sad note if the pregnancy doesn't

  • continue, if something goes wrong and the baby doesn't survive the pregnancy it's

  • called a miscarriage, a miscarriage. Now throughout the pregnancy you will check

  • on your little one to make sure everything is progressing well via a

  • scan you will have a scan. You can have a 2d

  • scan or a 4d scan which is what we had and it was amazing to see our little

  • baby's face all squishy and gorgeous. And a couple of other events that you might

  • mark throughout your pregnancy are a baby shower, which is a party to

  • celebrate a woman moving into motherhood, I did do a video about baby showers I'll

  • put it in the description box below and up here as well if you want to look at

  • it, and you may also go on a babymoon which is a holiday that you have with

  • your partner to enjoy the time that you have left before the baby comes and

  • turns your world upside down. I had a babymoon in Italy, again I will

  • link that video down in the description box below if you're interested in seeing

  • what I got up to on my babymoon. Throughout your pregnancy you'll be

  • looked after by your doctor and by a midwife a midwife is a medical

  • professional who specialises in looking after pregnant women and going through

  • labor and childbirth with them. As well some women also decide to have a doula. A

  • doula is like a birthing coach, someone who helps you through labor and through

  • childbirth now at the end of your pregnancy you will be rewarded with a

  • beautiful baby a gorgeous little bundle of joy just like little baby English

  • here. Isn't it cute? Of course I'm going to say that I'm his mother I love him

  • absolutely adore him. As a new parent it's very important to me that I can

  • provide my child with the best opportunities in life especially when it

  • comes to education and that's why I was very pleased to hear that Cambly have

  • created a new course especially for children to learn English. Now this

  • course has been designed by the children experts and is based on the u.s.

  • curriculum. Now the course lasts for 12 months but there are three options that

  • you can take, you can either have two lessons a

  • week, five lessons a week or seven lessons a week. Each lesson is 30 minutes

  • long so your child won't get bored and they are online so it's convenient. And

  • your child can learn from the safety and comfort of home and the lessons are also
