    How about using this tone:

    I have.. = Ngor Yau Jaw

    Though the "proper" literature phrase is:

    I am Pregnant = 我懷孕 = Ngor Why Yun

    Pregnant woman = 孕 婦 = Yun Foo

    Or just print those characters out, and show the person.... ;)

    Thanks everyone! I had the pleasure of hearing a native speaker say "ngoh yau bi bi" last night, so I might stick to that for now (with much pointing at tummy) as at least I'll have the tones right.
