When I was younger, I used to believe babies were made in the head.
When I was a child, I used to think that storks bring babies, because when I was a child I watched a lot of television, and especially cartoons, there I saw that storks brought babies.
I used to think that if a man stroked or tickled his wife's pregnant tummy, it would him a child molester to the baby, instead of a proud father to be!
I used to think the phrase 'expecting a baby', as in being pregnant, meant that you actually expected a baby to do something.
I believed that women who wanted babies ate a seed, which then grew into their baby.
When I was a child, I used to believe a sentence that the people said " when a girl and a boy embrace or kiss, that girl will be pregnant". Why do people say that? Because our culture is very conservative, most parents won't teach their children about sex, even avoid this topic because they think this is a shy thing. So there is the origin of this sentence. Until I learned biology, I realized that it was a big lie!
I used to believe that babies were made by kissing.
This one is quite obvious since 100% of all kids who are too young to know about sex would believe, that babies would be conceived anally, and periods were just random bleeding, like piles. Gross but hilarious.
Up until about 7 when my friend Zoe told me how babies were born and made, I had a thought that exactly right after the groom and bride kissed, she would just need to go to the hospital even though she had a flat belly. Then at the hospital a baby just popped out and they had a baby. The woman had no pain whatsoever and she was mom. That was my belief until Zoe trotted along and ruined my belief xD
I used to believe that women got pregnant from drinking a special type of juice called pregnancy juice that would make you pregnant with just one sip. I saw my mom's friend drinking red juice one day and a few days later i saw her pregnant, so i believed that she drank pregnancy juice until she explained.
I used to think that my dad gave birth to me instead of my mom because i looked more like my dad than mom.
When I was nine I learned about sex for the first time. I was told that sex was how babies were made and that it involved a man and a woman having a "special cuddle" together, but I didn't find out the details for years to come. Because of this, I assumed that sex consisted of a man and a woman holding hands and waiting until a baby was created.
I used to believe that when women reached a certain age then they can get pregnant from kissing a man. I thought that when you exchanged saliva while kissing then it would trigger something in the womens body that made hey get pregnant. I only thought that the body part down low was only used for peeing and where the child comes out of.
I used to think that you got pregnant by being in a relationship for a year, Like suddenly the male hormones would mix with the female ones after a year, and BAM! You're pregnant.
I was a reader when I was young and we had these old kids' books full of facts that I loved to read. One was "All About the Human Body" and it explained eggs, sperm, and fertilization. There were also anatomical diagrams I didn't understand, but the books were from the 50s so they were too conservative to explain anything more. So I knew sperm from the man's body had to somehow get into the woman's body for there to be a baby. When I asked my mom about this subject, she used to say it was "a special kind of love" between two people. So I thought that after two people fell in love and got married, they would walk down the street (or something), and the sides of their bodies would touch while they were walking. The sperm would somehow pass through their skin from the man to the woman, and then she would get pregnant. The funniest thing is that I imagined all this taking place with their clothes on because it literally never occurred to me they might take them off in front of each other.
I had my first sex talk when I was twelve. Prior to that, I thought that sharing a bathroom with somebody was enough to get one pregnant.
This led to a very embarrassing incident (I was around ten), when I broke down and started crying whilst telling my dad I was pregnant 'because we only have one bathroom, so we used the same bathroom!'
I used to believe that to get pregnant you had to place a watermelon seed on the bullybutton.
When my little brother (let's pretend his name was George) was about 4 or 5, he asked our mom how he got here. Mom said something like, "Well, we'd wanted and prayed for another baby for a while, and one day, God made sure a little 'George seed' started to grow inside Mommy. And when you got big enough, we went to the hospital so the doctor could help get you out."
I thought that prayer was a necessary part of the process of becoming pregnant! It turned out that I learned what abortion was before learning how sex worked, so for a while I was really confused about why someone would PRAY FOR A BABY, then not want it when it actually showed up inside her.
I thought sex was a man and woman simply laying on top of each other while naked in bed and then after a while of that the woman was magically pregnant.
When we were in our teens I had a friend who believed that if you had sex standing up then you wouldn't get pregnant. She also believed that you couldn't get pregnant on the first time. Luckily, I straightened her out.
