one child policy in China

by one child policy regulation in China, normally a Chinese couple is only allowed to have 1 child.
several exception i've ever heard:
* both the husband and wife are from the minority folk. the majority is "HAN". the minority are such as Xinjiang, Zhang, Chaoxian, etc. there are total 55 minority folks (thribes) in China.
* both the husband and wife are single-child in their own families.
* farmers whose first kid is a daughter.
* either the husband or wife is a foreigner.

previously, we got info that we could have 2 kids with Chinese nationality. but we needed to wait for another 3 years for the second one. but it was a mis-informatiton we got. another version we got was, if we wanted to have 2 children, both of the children must have foreign nationality (which is Indonesia).

the latest version, which is the correct version so far is:
we can have 2 children, if first one has Chinese nationality, then the second one cannot have the Chinese nationality, and cannot change it also in the future. if the second has the Chinese nationality, my husband will get fired from his job, which he works for the government (China Telecom). for this second kid, we dont have to wait for 3 years or so.


Thank God ! i really feel in such great relief now.
last few days i was in most stressfull condition ever, worried .. by the law that i must abort my second baby. if it happened, and i got no choice, i would plan to have my second baby in Indonesia.

and here is the great news...
i am now 9 weeks pregnant. and i feel great now!
actually it is out of our plan, out of the calculation, it happened during my infertile period; which was around the 20th day (from the first day of my period).
never rely on calculation by "fertility period" if you dont plan to get pregnant. lol ... !
