Spanish: Estar Embarazada

Type: False Friends

False Cognate: To be embarrassed

Meaning: To be pregnant

El otro día le dije al padre que estaba embarazada, pues quería decir que algo me diera pena. Pero así no se dice en español; lo que había dicho sin querer es que estaba encinta. ¡Qué error más vergonzoso! (The other day I told the priest that I was pregnant, because what I thought I was saying in Spanish was that something embarrassed me. But “embarazada” and “embarrassed” are false cognates; what I said by mistake was that I am pregnant. What an embarrassing mistake!)
