Common Error : Baby

Baby

- Sitting in the next seat was a young woman who was having a baby. (?)

- Sitting in the next seat was a young woman who was expecting a baby. (V)

Remarks:
Have a baby : melahirkan bayi (She's worried about having the baby at home in case there are complications.)

Be expecting a baby : be pregnant. (Janet is expecting another baby).

Note :
Be having a baby, bisa digunakan dengan arti hamil, tapi untuk menghindari salah faham lebih baik jangan dipakai.
