getting pregnantShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
I used to believe that when a man and woman slept in the same bed, that sperm would sneak out of the man's peen and creep across the bedsheets and into the woman's vagina, and that was how women got pregnant. I pictured the sperm to be about a half inch long with 4 little feet and really smirky looks on their faces.
when i was small i thought that a girl got pregnent when she slept in the same bed with a man. that was when i was 8!!
when i was younger i thought that babies came to be in the mom's stomach because she had prayed for a vaby and she chose if she wanted a boy or a girl
I used to believe that in order for a woman to get pregnant the man had to pee inside her vagina.
I also thought "making love" meant making out for a long time. Stupid soap operas!
when I was really really young I accidently stumbled across some porn on TV playing with our new sattelite dish. I knew it was sex, and that sex made you pregnant. So for the next couple of weeks I'd stare at my belly in the mirror wondering if I was pregnant. I gave myself until my birthday in September and that if I hadn't grown a belly by then that I must not be pregnant. phew.
I used to believe that if you said "x" 100 times it would become "sex" and you would get pregnant. I also used to beleive If someone und er 21 had a baby she wqould die.
i used to believe that the only way you could get pregnant was to shower with someone of the opposite sex.
When my family went to Queensland for a holiday, we went into this museum and there were these wierd statues there. I think I touched one of them.
We went into another room, and there was a big screen playing movies about various things in the museum. It mentioned something about those statues I'd seen, and it was showing how all these people who touched the statues got pregnant afterwards.
I then became worried that I'd get pregnant.
I was 11 years old at the time.
when i was 7 to 8 i believed dat a child is born when a mother develops love for husband in his heart and god gifts the mother a child which is sent to the hospital through an Angel
I had a brief phase of thinking that sharing a water glass with a man would get you pregnant. (I think I knew it could only be grownup men, so it was ok to share with my brothers.)
In 5th grade sex ed, they explained everything in a fair amount of detail -- the menstrual cycle, anatomy (I think of both girls and boys), how the egg and sperm get together and fertilization happens. The one thing they left out was precisely how the egg and sperm could arrive in the same place. (We got that in 8th grade sex ed, but by then I already knew.)
5th grade sex ed was not co-ed. I assume the boys got less information about menstruation, but nobody asked. The boys did report that they watched a film of some sort in which the egg wore an evening gown and the sperm wore a tuxedo and they had a night on the town or something. I wonder how many boys were confused by that?
When I was a child, I was certain that to become pregnant a man and woman had to go to a hospital and be assisted by a doctor. I was fuzzy on what exactly the doctor did but I was sure one had to be involved. When I later found out that a man could get a woman pregnant anywhere they wanted, without medical supervision, I was pretty upset. It seemed way too unregulated. I'm okay with it now, though.
When I was about 9 or 10 (30 years ago), I happened to see an article in the paper about a 10 year old girl that had given birth to a baby girl. I took the paper to my mother and asked her how did this girl have a baby. My mom, being very religious, told me that the girl had done something bad. A couple of weeks later, I had told my mother a lie. I starting thinking about what my mother said about the girl who had the baby. I was so afraid that, since I had done something bad, that I was going to get pregnant - and my mother would find out that I lied. I tried very hard not to do anything bad after that experience.
When i was little my mom told me that God put a baby in mommys tummy, so i thought that you would have to pray to God and ask him for a baby and he would put one in there... . i always wondered what daddy had to do with it.
I used to think women got pregnant randomly, I didnt know you actually had to have sex(ect ect), to become pregnant, so I was always scared I would get pregnant and then I learned in grade 7 health class what really goes down.
I thought for a long time that a women could only get pregnant if she was married. I was so confused when my unmarried cousin gave birth to a baby girl when I was 11. I remember lying awake for ages thinking about how that could possible
I used to believe that a female could get pregnant just by sleeping in the same bed as a male. I didnt realise that there was actually anything else involved!
I used to believe that to check if a woman was pregante, when she peed, it would be blue...i kinda got mixed up with the blue stick, and blue pee. lol
when i was younger i thought that women got pregnant when a man pee in the womans mouth well that's what my neighbor told me and i believed him untill i found out the truth in sex ed class
When I was really young, I used to believe that the reason I had a slightly round belly was because I had become pregnant from sharing a bath with my brother...
When I first learned about the birds and the bees, I thought that you only had to have sex once and then you would have unlimited babies. I was way grossed out when I found out you had to "do it" each time.
