getting pregnantShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
I used to believe that when a woman discovered she was pregnant, she would ask the father if he wanted to keep it and if he said yes, they would have sex. If they didn't want to keep it, they would do nothing and she wouldn't be pregnant anymore. This was from watching TV soaps.
When I was eight I used to think that in order to get a girl pregnant, you had to pee insider of her. I had no concept of what an actual orgasm was. This led me to be supremely confident in my ability to impregnate women, as I considered myself a masterful urinator at this point.
I used to believe that when a man and a woman were married, they would just ask God for a baby, and one would come out of the mother's stomach nine months later. One day I was playing house with my friend and we were pretending to be married so I asked God for a baby. I was terrified that I might be pregnant for months afterwards.
One day my parents were sitting close together, as the family was chatting with friends. And a man made a comment to them that totally confused me, being a little kid as I was at the time. He asked my parents if they were trying to keep up with "Mary". "Mary" had just had another baby. Now, I was learning in grade school about how the egg is fertilized by the sperm, etc. But they hadn't told us about how the sperm GET to the egg. So when I heard this comment, I thought that the sperm must jump through the skin when you get up against a boy. And THAT'S how the sperm gets to the egg.
After that, I was afraid to get near men and boys because I didn't want their sperm to jump through our skin and get me.
I believed that you peed inside a girl to get her pregnant until I was 12.
When I was like 5 my mom was pregnant with my younger brother, i asked my step-dad how my mom became pregnant and he told me that he put an orange seed in her belly button and it grows a baby. lol i silly enough beleived this and alwyas made sure i spat my orange seeds out! lol
I used to believe that if the woman was on the bottom during sex, she would have the baby and if the man was on the bottom he would have the baby.
I used to believe people got pregnant by drinking men's spunk from a cup
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.
