getting pregnantShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
I use to believe that the man peed in the woman to get her pregnant. Didn't know about sperm until sex ed.
Up until i was about 9 i thought that you could give birth to a baby by yourself, without the help of a man, but maybe a man would help speed up the pregnancy or make the baby healthier.I think i made that mistake because i didn't understand how single mothers came about. So whenever I saw a single mother with a child i imagined her as being a bit irresponsible and silly for not getting a man to help her make the the baby first.
i used to believe that when a woman wanted a baby, she'd pray, and God would give her one. So when i asked my mom "can a woman who isn't married have a baby?" and she said yes, i assumed that there was no man involved. So as a little kid, watching the news, there was a big controversy *this was like 1991 btw* over two women wanting to have a baby. it was a long time before i figured out why it was anyone else's business, because if all you had to do was pray, then no one could stop you...
My sister told me this-I BELIEVED HER, haha.
A man would stick his "Finger" into a womans "Hairy Armpit". Then, fish would swim out of his finger, and meet up with the chicken eggs in her armpit. They would migrate down to her SPLEEN and grow into a baby. Then, the woman would poop it out.
What really mystified me was that, well, I never found any fish on my finger!!!!!
This happened when I was 6. At 11, I was watching a sex ed video, and asked the teacher what kind of fish were in your finger. IN FRONT OF THE WHOLE CLASS. Every 11 year old boy in the school heard me.
I used to think that the "testies" were little balls and he penis was a sack that held the balls. When two people wanted to have a kid, a man would get his sack (Which was in a drawer, hidden where no one could find it) (Yes, I looked for it) and give one ball to the woman. She would insert it into her ear (How did it fit?) and then, a year later, A BABY!!!!
I used to think that the way mommies got pregnant was if they ate a lot.
I knew that you have to have sex to make babies, and I had a vague idea of the job profile of prostitution. But I had no clue there was something like birth control. So I imagined all prositutes where pregnant all the time and had lots of children!
I found out about the mechanics of sex but at first I didn't know that it involved pleasure, so I thought when you wanted to have a baby you just put the penis in the vagina and stuff (I didn't know about semen) just automatically came out and the couple would just hope they got pregnant!
For a long time when I was little I thought I was pregnant because whever I laid on my stomach I could feel something going "bump bump bump" inside my stomach. I thought maybe I had been raped as a baby and it impregnated me years later. Later on I realized it was just my heartbeat.
I used to believe women got pregnant randomly, sort of like catching a flu, only you catch pregnancy.
I remember playing with a friend when i was little and we were talking about getting married and having babies. The whole idea of dating and getting married made me cringe with embarrassment, so I proudly declared I would simply wait to get pregnant "on my own" instead of having a husband.
i used to think that if anything too hard touched my butt i would get pregnant to i tried not to sit too flat down on chairs
Before I knew how sex worked (I was in 4th grade, and in my area sex ed starts in 5th grade), I thought that you could only have babies when you're married. My friend (who's parents told him about sex) also said that, and I thought it was weird! How can whatever makes babies know if you are married? Then I thought of something having to do with the wedding ring putting pressure on your finger. My friend used terms like "egg" and "sperm" and I had no idea what they meant!
It wasn't until I heard them used to define sex when I understood!
I explained to my 3 year old daughter that I am pregnant and there is a baby in my tummy.
She came up with the idea that it crawled in there through my mouth while I was sleeping and will crawl back out in a few months.
She also thinks that she is pregnant, and with twins, just to one-up me.
When i was young i thought you got pregnant by pee.
When I was about 7 I read a book about your body and it said the seed comes out of the dads body..blah blah so I thought if 2 people the love each toch tummies for a while the mom would get pregnant
I used to believe that there was a hard way and an easy way to have a baby the easy way was to just wait to have a baby and the hard way was to have sex.I also used to believe that you could choose if you wanted to have a girl or a boy.
I used to think that boys and girls both had penises and that you had sex by rubbing them together and would make babies by doing anal.
Before knowing about sex, I thought that God impregnated the mother after marriage and that you had to be married to have a kid. Later after finding out about sex I thought that the parents had sex once when they got married and got pregnant at random during the marriage. Since then I have become an Atheist too.
i used to believe that to get a girl pregnant that you would squeeze your "woo woo" and aim at the girl and that would make her pregnant. until one day in 12th grade i took a girl on a date and said i had to go the bathroom and when i came out i started running at her squeezing my "woo woo". she called the cops.
I used to think that to get pregnant you rubbed your bums together. =|
