When I was four, I found out that only women could give birth to babies, but I didn't know how. I wondered if it was my destiny to end up pregnant, and would I know when it happened? One night at dinner, I voiced my fear to mom & dad. I think they had rehearsed their answer about this iffy question before, and they told me "A man and a woman both have to decide they are having a baby." and left anything to do with human anatomy out of it. I'm sure they thought they were being really safe and politically correct, but for a few years I live in fear that if I thought (or worried) about having a baby hard enough, the thought would be strong enough to make myself pregnant. It was mind-torture.
When I was younger, about 8-9 years old, I believed that a guy and a girl sleeping in the same bed was enough to get the girl pregnant. Not requiring any other physical contact.. :)
When I was little(6 at the time) i asked my older sister Grace (11 at the time)where babies came from. Grace told me you stick a seed in your belly button and after 9 months you take it out and you have a baby. I believed her until i was about 9.
I used to believe that if you were having a baby and wanted it to have curly hair you would simply just get a perm while being pregnant.
My grandma told me right after I finished 6th grade (in 1969) that I was not to get a bikini or two-piece for a swim suit, because it would attract boys and I would wind up pregnant.
When I was little I thought that when a woman got married, her body would automatically know when and that's what made her pregnant. The body would also figure out how many babies the woman wanted to have. I also thought that, when an unmarried woman got pregnant, it was because she had been drinking.
I used to believe that you got pregnant magically once you got married, and that you only carried the baby for a few hours!
When I was 5, I used to believe that every time you wanted to have a baby you had to throw a wedding.
When I was very young, I only wanted to take showers because I thought I could get pregnant by using the same bathtub (the tub, not water) as them.
When I was younger, I thought the woman got pregnant when the man kissed her with his tongue.
When I was little I asked my mum how some eggs have chicks in and some don't. She told me that a girl hen just had to see a boy hen and the eggs would have chicks in. I believed that until I was 14!
I used to believe women could get pregnant just from sleeping in the same bed as a man.
When I was young, I heard my parents talking about this kid I knew named Shane, and how his mom was "24 when she got pregnant with Shane". I thought that meant his own mother got pregnant with him. Confused me for years.
I used to believe that when parents wanted to have a baby the dad would touch the mom's stomach and she would be pregnant.
When my mom became pregnant with my little sister, she said that God gave us a baby. I believed this until I learned about sex, but she still thinks she can tell that thing about God to me!
When I was around 5, my mom took me to a science museum. They had a display about reproduction, which included a mural featuring sperm. After seeing this, I came to the conclusion that when parents have their "wedding kiss", sperm comes out of the guys mouth and gets the girl pregnant.
I used to believed that a woman got pregnant when she married, even if she never had sex, but if she wasn't married she had to sleep with someone to have a baby.
My friend teased me and said that his parents never had sex because they where married and my parents had sex because the where not. I started crying and ran home when he told me, thinking that i really had to get married so i would not have to have sex.
When I was a child, I thought that I was originally in the 'tummy' of an old French woman, but everyone thought I should be in my own mummy's tummy, so the teleported me over there.
When I was only 3-7 years old I used to tell all my friends that if you put your tongue in someone else's mouth you'll get pregnant. So whenever my parents started kissing I woukd scream that I didn't want a little brother or sister
I used to believe that people were born pregnant and everyone had a baby eventually. I remember being about 5 and thinking I'd probably grown at least a toenail inside of me by now.
