getting pregnantShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
up until 7, i used to believe that u ould get pregnnat just buy hugging a boy. cuz of that, i never hugged a boy.
When i was young every girl knew she could get pregnant from sitting on the toilet seat.
A rumour went around that a girl we knew had been having sex. My friend said that as soon as she got her period, she'd fall pregnant. neither of us knew sperm could only survive for so long....well, i can't actually recall if we even knew about sperm...sex made babies and that was it.
I used to think that you had to be married to get pregnant, and thought some strange "pregnant ray" came down from the wedding ring and put a baby in the mother's stomach.
My freind in preschool's parents told her that human babies come from eggs too, but they are inside a mommy's stomach. She also was told that In order for the eggs to come into being, you needed to eat eggs (chicken, although she didnt know thats where they were from at the time) and beans for 9 months straight. SHe told me this and I believed it until my friend told me the truth when I was 9.
Up until I was about fourteen (my parents were crazy, strict, Baptists, so they didn't tell me anything about sex; I found out from my older sis), I thought sex was two people either a: sleeping in a bed together (naked?) or b: two people kissing in a bed together (naked?), and then falling asleep afterwards.
I thought this would make a baby, so as a child, when I'd hear couples in church talking about "trying to have a baby" I didn't understand what they were doing to try to make this happen. I asked Mom once: "What do they mean they're trying? Doesn't it just happen (while they're asleep)?" I was very confused about it all, and Mom refused to give me a straight answer on it. Thankfully, my sister straightened me out when I was 14.
I used to think that babies grew from a seed that every woman had inside them, and that the seed would start growing when she fell in love.
Not sure if this is all that appropriate, but I used to think babies were born out of a women's... butt... and not their... you know...
I also used to think that you made babies by kissing.
I used to think that a woman could only get pregnant after marriage.
I was smart enough to know that you couldn't get pregnant by kissing a person of the opposite sex. However, i believed that by sleeping on the same bed could. My explanation was that sperm crawled on the bed to the other person (when i first knew about sperm) when you 'needed' it to.
Pregnant Women... How did the babies get inside their bellies? I never needed explanations from my parents 'cause I used to think that the babies were the result of too much food eaten by women at once. I mean... if a woman eats too much at once, her stomach wouldn't digest all that stuff and then... Baby! Just like The Spontaneous Generation Theory says.
i used to believe that a woman becomes pregnant when a man sees/touches her naked body. in indian movies the sex act is never shown, the woman's clothes are tossed one after another, and a few scenes later she announces that she is pregnant!!
As a little girl (6 years old), I read that the was a 10 year old who became a mother. I wondered if I asked God very nicely if He would give me a baby -- even while I was still a little girl -- just He did for the Virgin Mary. I thought God would make the immaculate conception for anybody.
When I was six I knew that sperm from a man went into a woman and met an egg to make a baby. I asked my mom if it just flew out and landed in the woman.
Before my mom gave me "the talk", she assessed my knowledge of sex. She asked, "So how do you think babies are made?" I responded, "By kissing". She said, "So daddy could get you pregnant by kissing you goodnight?" I replied rolling my eyes, "No! Kissing with the tongue!"
When my Mom was expecting my lil brother I was around three, I remember her having me touch her belly to feel the baby moving... I had my hand there for a few minutes and when I felt the baby actually move I ran away crying my eyes out because I was convinced my Mom ATE the baby!
I remembering being afraid of her for awhile, cause I didn't want her to eat me too!
When I was younger I used to believe that women got pregnant from eating too much. Whenever we would see a pregnant woman out in public I would say I guess she ate to much, huh mom?!
I was an only child who always wanted a brother or sister. When I was around 8 years old, an older friend told me that the way to tell if my mother was going to have a baby was to look under her bed, and it there was dust under there, that meant that my mother was pregnant. I watched the dust accumulate under my parent's bed for a couple of years and kept watching to see if my mother's tummy was growing before I found out that it wasn't true!
My mom told me that when a man and a woman are in love they just "decide" to have a baby and poof, the woman is pregnant. (Nothing involving body parts.) I was amazed for a long time at the power of thought.
My mom was learning to drive around the time that she was pregnant with my youngest brother (I was about 8 years old when he was born). I remember thinking that "pregnant" had something to do with getting a driver's license.
