getting pregnantShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
When I was 6 or 7 I was in the car with my older brother, sister, and my mum. My older sister was talking about her period maybe starting soon, and my mom was talking about how its just unfertilized babies. (lol) So I said intelligently, "I want to know how cavemen has babies". and My mum turned around to look at me but said nothing. So I went on, "Well, you have to take a pill to have a baby, right? So how did they get those pills?" And abruptly all three of the elders doubled over laughing!!
I used to think that a man and woman would kiss at night in bed and the next morning the woman would wake up pregnant w/a big belly and the next day they would have a baby and you could choose if it was a boy or girl as soon as it was born.
when i was little my mom told me that to get pregnant you had to eat watermelon seeds and they grew into babies. for a couple years i would tear the watermelon apart to get out all of the seeds.
Some one told me in 2nd grade that to have a baby, a boy and a girl have to poop and pee on eachother. Since I hadn't heard any other way, I believed it.
i believed if you had sex twice in a row you would have twins
Whwn I was like 8 I used to believe woman just got pregnant randomly.
I always understood the whole "sex makes you pregnant" part, but i never got how the baby came out.... so i immeditaly thought it came out of your bellybutton. Well, i never knew what belly buttons were for!
I used to believe that there was a tunnel between a girls butt and her vagina. Then I thought that a girl could get pregnant from butt sex...
This one isn't me, it's my brother.
He's 9, and becoming curious about "the birds and the bees"...:ahem: so he asked my mom, who said "jesus puts the baby in the mommy's tummy"
So then my brother watched a documentary on tv about zebra's, and a male died. then the female zebra had a baby. so my bro linked the two things together.
later, he was talking to our aunt on the phone, telling her about the show he had watched. he said "the daddy zebra died, then jesus put a baby in the mommy zebra's belly!!"
needless to say, my aunt asked my mom about it later.
When my little sister was born, i was 4. And i was still tryin to figure out where babies came from. Since my parents wouldnt tell me, i figured that the mommy ate so many strange foods that it somehow blended and became a baby. So i decided to tell my little baby sister that she was made of doughnuts.
My friends and I used to believe that a girl could get pregnant by hugging a boy while they were lying in bed...ha ha...I think this was because one of my older cousins told us that the song "2 Become 1" by the Spice Girls was a "baby making song"...and we didn't know that they were talking about sex in the song...we just thought that they were talking about when two people hug each other really tight or something b/c there's a lot of hugging in the music video...lol
I knew it had to be something pretty disgusting to get a baby. I thought the way to get pregnant was the woman and man had to take off their clothes, get into the same bed and cover themselves up with a blanket. They went to sleep and in the morning, the woman was pregnant. To me, that was gross enough.
When my mom told me the actual way a woman got pregnant, I was so horrified at the perverseness of the idea that I cut her off mid-explanation, saying, "Okay, okay!!" and ran away.
I have two kids now, by the way.
For some reason i have this picture in my mind that Cinderella couldn't have babies the "normal way" ( i was about nine at this time) i thought that they had to lie down next to eachother and put tubes in their mouths and they'd breath and Cinderella would get pregnant
this might be a common belief, i dont know. But when i was little i was very innocent, and i believed that to have children, all you had to do was become married. then, you would share a bed and if you wanted to, the woman would magically become pregnant. i dont know. its weird.
As a child I believed that you got pregnant by sitting on the same toliet seat as a man did. That's why my sister and I could never go into our parent's bathroom. One time my mother let me and I was sure that I was pregnant the next day when I had a stomach ache.
When I was younger I thought you had to have an orgasm to get pregnant, like a man. So, needless to say, I tried for so long to make myself have one, (So I knew that I was fertile). When my doc told me I was wrong, I was so embarassed....but VERY relieved.
when i was about 10 i thought you could get pregnant from fingering yourself. because everytime i did my stomach felt funny.
When I was little my friend and I were playing barbies and she had one of them have a baby, but she wasn't married. Since, being young I thought you HAD to be married to have a kid. I was confused and asked my mom if you had to and she said no. So i formed this strange belief that you can adopt a baby in your stomach.
i used to think that babies just appear in my mommy's stomach for no reason, but when i got to school i learned the disgusting truth
when i was younger i asked my older sister where babies came from and she told me the man had to give the women a special seed. So i thought you could buy "baby seeds" (that the man would hand to the women and she would eat it) in a garden centre next to the plant seeds! Untill I was about 7 i always used to look for them when we went shopping!
