getting pregnantShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
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.
I asked my mom why babies look like their dads if they came out of the mom, and she said when people get married they mix DNA. I thought they needed surgery before the wedding.
I used to think that you get pregnant when the mummy kisses the daddy. Then I realised that couldn't be true because my mum and dad kissed all the time. I was confused. When I was 8 or 9 my mum told me about sex. I knew already about sex and thought it was naughty. I said '' but mummy you and daddy never had sex did you?'' then she explained
When I was little, I asked my parents the obvious question "where do babies come from?" My parents told me that babies came from the hospital.
for years, i truly believed that there was a shop full of babies, one room full of chinese babies, white babies, black babies and asian babies, and you would go to the shop and buy one to match the ethnicity of your family!
it was only when i went to year 7 when I found out where babies really came from!
When I was little and my mother told me how I was in her belly when she was pregnant, I thought that also meant I could crawl up her throat and see out her mouth.
