getting pregnantShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
I used to believe that if you went swimming after you got your first period, then you could get pregnant.
I used to believe for the longest time until I was around age 8 that you got pregnant simply by getting naked and being near a person of the oppisite sex.
When I was about four, my parents were applying for a home loan.(so I discovered later.) At the time, I was very confused by it all. It was all they talked about. "We should apply..." was the only thing I heard. When I asked what 'appllying' meant, mum told me it meant 'asking permission from somebody to get something.' I gradually started to believe they meant they were 'appllying' for a child. I thought that if you wanted a baby, you had to apply. My parents also said "Maybe we're not eligable..." A few times. I asked what that meant too. I was told it meant 'able to get.' It came to my conclusion that some parents didn't have children because they "wern't eligible." I felt so smart about discovering that. What it made it even funnier was that my mother actally got pregnant! I screamed with joy "So you got permission?!?"
Now, I have scared many of pregnant women by asking them: "Are you sure your eligible? Do you have permission?"
i used to think that people get pregnant when they eat alot and all the food in their tummy turns into a baby.
My son believed for the longest time that the doctor put my daughter in my tummy when I was pregnant. He went around telling everyone that her dad was the doctor, not my husband
i used to believe that if you jump up and down after having sex, you won't get pregnant.
I used to believe that the lint in belly buttons was the material you had to make babies. I was scared to clean it out because I thought that then I couldn't have children.
I always thought in order to have a baby you had to lick a girl's vagina. Then I found the truth. Things made a lot more sense.
I was raised in a Christian family, and so I would always be reading stories in Genesis where someone 'lies with their wife' and their wife is 'with child'. So until I finally asked The Question I always thought that pregnancy was this magical thing that happened when women had been sharing a bed with their husband. I thought it travelled through the air.
I used to believe that after a certain age women just got pregnant at random, like one day they would just wake up pregnant with no say in the matter whatsoever.
When I was 11, I thought that if you had a girl give you a blow job and you "came" in her mouth she could get pregnant. I was told otherwise in my health class after I asked this questions and got a good laugh from my fellow classmates.
When I was a kid I always used to check my underwear for spiders because I thought if a spider went into my panties and up my vagina I would get pregnant and give birth to a giant spider!
i use to believe that you could only get pregnant after you turned nine and if you had sex even once you would get pregnant
When I was about 5, my parents told me the whole reproduction story, but they didn't explain if very thoroughly. They told me a woman gets pregnant "When a man and a woman are naked and are very close to each other." For years I imagined my parents, naked, sitting squished next to each other in the armchair in our living room.
i used to believe u got pregnet by sitting on a bed and praying to god "please give us a baby"
and if he thought u were worthy he would give u one
Somehow I'd figured out the parts involved in making a baby but sex had never been explained to me. I worked out that while the man and the woman were asleep in bed, the sperm would crawl out of the man's penis and into the woman's vagina and then she would just wake up pregnant.
Well, can't say it's the most imaginative one, but I used to think a woman would get pregnant just by being around a man enough. This is because my dad used to read novels to me and my brother and just skip over any inappropriate scenes.
While I always knew that babies came from mothers' wombs, and that boys had penises and girls had vaginas, I did not always know about sexual intercourse. I thought that babies were formed inside mommies' wombs when the priest at the wedding chanted magic words. And that sometimes the magic would escape and hit random women and that's how single mothers happened. And that people could not control the spacing of the babies- they stayed frozen there indefinitely until God decided it was time for one to be born. And that penises were strictly to distinguish boys from girls when they were born. And later I thought that sex was something very clinical people did in the bathroom standing up strictly to make babies.
I know better now.
i used to think that a woman became pregnant when her vagina rubbed off splashes of pee left on the toilet seat by a man! how weird is that!
when i was younger i use to belive you could get pregnant by having oral sex
