getting pregnantShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
When I was little I came up to my mom and asked her, "Where do babies come from?" and she said that you just have to want one really bad and you'll get a baby. So I believed that you just really really want to have one and it will just pop up somewhere.
I was a very late addition to my family; basically, my parents had four kids in a row in the first four years of marriage, then waited fourteen years before deciding they wanted one more go at it, from which I was the result. So, my mother used to explain to me when I was a wee lad how much she and dad wanted to have one more child, and that they 'prayed and prayed' that god would give them one more.
Thus, I thought up until I was seven or eight that the whole secret of where babies comes from was simply...praying. Really hard.
When I was 7, my parents let me know that I was going to have a baby borther or sister. I replied, "OK, great. Let me know what night you need to sleep naked so I don't bother you." MY parents, needless to say, were perplexed. Apparently, I thought that women perioidically became pregnant, and that in order to continue the pregnancy, they had to sleep naked with their husbands to move to the next stage. They still tell that story. I"m almost 40.
when I was in kindergarten, my mom told me that babies were made when you "sleep with someone". Having been given this "secret", I suddenly developed a phobia of naptime when the boys and girls in my class slept in the same room on cots. I didn't want to "sleep with" the entire class, so I refused to take a nap for two whole weeks. I kept waiting for babies to appear, and when they didn't I decided my mom was making up stories, and continued taking naptime.
my mum told that the daddy gave the mommy a seed that'd grow in her tummy till it became a baby. she neglected, however, HOW the seed would get in there so i thoought tat when the mommy and daddy kissed it'd go from the daddy's mouth into the mommy's and down to her stomach.
when my mum was pregnant with my little sister i asked my dad "how do you get pregnant" he replied you take a pill a pink one for a girl and a blue one for a boy!!!................
I wish it was as simple as that!!
If you masturbate, you can get pregnant.
i used to beleive that if you played with you boobs, that you would have a baby.
I learned about sex when I was 9, but I had a friend who insisted women got pregnant by a man sticking his penis in her mouth - the woman would swallow the sperm and the baby would grow right in her stomach. I knew better, but she was very adamant about it, even telling me she'd seen a picture in the dictionary. I'd like to know what kind of dictionary she was looking at!
My friends boyfriend thought that you both had to orgasm at the same time for her to get pregnant.
I dont know where i heard this from .. but up till i was 15 years old, i thought that when you are giving a guy head and you swallow, you can still get pregnant.
I believed that to get a baby the man had to pee in the womans, whoo haa. and ohh a baby 9 months later.
When i was a Kid , ( i'm 23) i used to believe man and woman were married and god give them a child, and woman get pregnant!! lol ( but it's really true)
When me and my friends were little we were told that sex was the guy putting his penis on the girls head and then the sperm would somehow travel down the girls body and into her tummy to make the baby..lol...we were like 5 years old
One time I was drinking apple juice and my little sister wanted a drink and I told her no because I am sick. She told me it was okay cuz she was sick too. I told her that what I have is very contagious, so she asked what it was. I told her I was pregnant and she got scarred and said "you can catch pregnant if you drink from a pregnant lady???" needless to say, I didn't have to share my apple juice! LOL
When I was about four, my mom was having another baby and some very weird cravings, so she used to stick these weird white olives on her fingers and eat them one by one. One day I was watching Sesame Street and Wayne Brady was on, who, as you know, is a black man, and his fingernails showed really prominently as white on his dark figers. Well, his fingernails looked just like the white olives my pregnant mom used to eat, so that's what I thought they were. Therefore, any black guy I saw on TV I thought was pregnant.
Till age 9 or 10 i thought the only way for a women to get pregnant was to have anal. Diddent know there was more parts down ther.
I used to think that women got pregnant by the mom and dad praying really hard and then God just gave them a baby in the womb magically.
my dad likes to joke and once he got carried away. He actually told my sister u can get pregnant by eating green M&Ms. I didn't realize this until one day my mom came in my room and asked who i slept with. I didnt know what she was talking about and said my sister told her i was pregnant. When i confronted her she said the M&M thing. As it turns out she saw me eating them the day before!
Okay, so you know those tampon/pad machines? Well, I thought that when you put in money for a pad, you wore the pad for 5 weeks, and then you were pregnant, with a girl. Tampons were boys. And you needed to wear them for 10 weeks. . I remember i asked my mom "I want a sister, okayy?" i put in the money, and handed her a pad. she's like... uh, no Alexa. That's not how it's done.
