When I was 9, I used to believe that one day a girl just "became" pregnant, the way that a girl one day gets her period. I knew this usually happened when a girl was older, but I would often overhear my mom gossiping to her friends about some young teenager who "got" pregnant, and what a shame and a tragedy it was, and how the girl's life was ruined. I was so terrified that I would be one of those girls that got pregnant early, the next time I went to the doctor's to get a check up, I asked the receptionist (loudly) if they can tell if I was pregnant from the check-up. Well, the stares that followed made my mom promptly bring me aside and tell me the truth!
I used to think that when you wanted a baby you HAD to be married and you had to get on your knees and pray and say, 'God up in the heavens I want a baby *whatever*' and the baby would come down from the sky. I didn't know hospitals existed back then.
My grandmother told me that when she was younger she used to believe that if someone touched her boob she would get pregnant.
i used to believe that when you want to have a baby you have to eat a lot of food you dont like and if you dont want to have a baby you have to have a seat belt on!
I used to think that you got babies when a man licked a woman's privates. So When a few boys in my class (In fifth grade) Were making fun of how women had to deal with the pain of giving birth and having periods and such, I told them that they's have to do something EVEN WORSE. I figured it out that summer XD
When I was little, I used to think that when somebody is pregnant, the baby would grow up in the stomach and feed on whatever the mom ate, and that the baby's bellybutton was connected to the mother's windpipe!! I also remember feeling very grown-up when my junior friends asked me where the baby came out from and I told them "from the bellybutton"
When I was about 3, my mom, grandma and I were sitting on the couch looking through old ictures. My couin and I are only a month apart and there was a picture of my mom and my aunt together while they were both pregnate. I pointed to that one and said, why re you and Aunt. Vicky fat? She giggled and said, thats a picture of when you where in my tummy! I scrame and said, WHY DID YOU EAT ME!? My grandma and my mom started to laugh and now they STILL torture me about that!
Okay, I know this is a kind of weird idea, but I was reallyyy obsessed with germs when I was younger (7 or 8?). I used to think that when a man and woman got married, and they shared a bedroom and took off their tops, the man (with his fingertip) pressed the woman's nipple. The germs from his finger would go through his finger into the woman's breast. The woman's breast would fill up with the germs and, eventually, it would spread throughout the woman's body. When the germs got into the stomach, the woman was inpregnanted.
I used to think that gay guys could get pregnant. My step uncle was gay and he had a girl. i thought that his bf had gotten pregnant by him and hid the girl for a while until she was 4. One day i asked him where the baby came out of a guy. He told my mom about it and they explained. Wow did I feel dumb...I still get teased.
When I was a little girl my mother had a picture of her sonagram put in a card.She told me babys were in the belly. She showed it to me and I was happy at first but then I said dissapointedly "Mommy?" My voice became angry "why did you eat me!!!!?!!?!" I immediatley thought of her as a wolf eating me innocently lol.
I used to believe that you had to be on your period to get pregnant........
i used to believe that a guy could get pregnaut from watching a certain movie. it was about ppl sticking a fertilized embryo in the man's tummy. the guy was played by Arnold Schartzenager. (SP?) My mom had to explain to me that that was a fiction movie. It took A LOT of convincing.
I used to think it took three days to get a baby. My mom told me one day that she was pregnant, I figured the next day she would be "fat" with the baby and the day after that the baby would arrive! lol I had no clue it takes nine months!
When i was little and was told what abortion was i thought that a doctor would stick a sword up the woman's vagina to kill the baby.
If a woman wanted a baby, she wouldeat baby food, this would make a baby in her stomach. She would then poo it out. =]
When I was very young I thought all women were born pregnate and as you grew up the baby inside you developed until you eventually gave birth. So was a toddler I'd go around rubbing my belly and telling people I was pregnate.
I never believed in the stork or the cabbage patch; when I was quite small my parents gave me books about reproduction and answered questions truthfully. I don't remember not knowing where babies came from.
I don't think the books I had explained birth control, though, so I naturally assumed that every act of intercourse between a woman and a man resulted in pregnancy. The book also made a vague mention that sex was fun and felt good, but their description didn't make it seem like something people would want to do a lot for reasons other than making babies.
So, when I was about eight, I figured my parents had had sex three times, because they had three kids. I also figured that the only reason for having sex was a desire to have a kid. If they went into their room at night and closed the door I would always find some reason to interrupt them, because I didn't want any more siblings. Sorry, Mom and Dad...
When i was six and i heard my mom telling someone that they were "trying". I thought that you got pregnant and standing really close. And you blew into eachother's mouths and a green laser thing shot out from the man and into the woman. and somhome you got a baby from that! wow i was sooo wrong !
When I was about 8 I used to think that a man got a woman pregnant by weeing inside her. I knew that something came out of the penis, but wee was the only thing I could think of at that age.
Well my sister thought it butt when she was younger she got told that you can only have babies if you wish for them. her mate soon came over & they were playing bratz sharing a room i was in the same room chilaxingg and i over heard there conversation. the other girl suggested that they made a babie by having sex my sister then said ' well you have to wish otherwise they'll never be a baby, make sure she wishes afterwards ' i couldnt help laughing.
