getting pregnantShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
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.
My mom told me that in order to get pregnant and give birth to a baby, woman must eat only chocolate exclusively for 9 month... and I used to believe her... Then one day we were playing in the yard and one of the older boys started scientific explanations of the process, I disagreed and we had a fight. Kids around us divided in two camps, half believed to me and half - to him. At the end we all made peace and decided that both ways probably work...
I used to believe that a child was born when 2 people got married and had their magical kiss that would make the women get pregnant. so out of curiosity i would ask my parents at totally random times how a baby was made. They would always say that it was a bad time to ask and they would tell me later
When I was around 5 years old, I heard from several friends that if you ate a watermelon seed you would get pregnant. I ate a lot of watermelon seeds that summer...I loved babies and couldn't wait to be a mom!
I used to believe that when people got married and kissed afterwards that the kiss caused them to have a baby after they were married.
i used to think that when girls got older and got married, they could just want to have a kid and magically it would happpen.
When I was in 2nd grade I thought if a boy touched a girls stomach she would get pregnant. So one day i was out side playing and a boy toched my stomach and i cried for days!!
When I was younger I used to believe that women just magically got pregnant after getting married.
One time when i was 4, i asked my mom how babies were made, she said it usually happenes when you get married, then my friend Jacob (which to this day, i am still good friends with) said he never wanted to get married, and i thought he meant he never wanted to have a kid.
Like other kids, I thought a baby came from a stork. But I thought after you bought a baby at a store, it would grow for 8 or so months and the stork would deliver it. I thought that my mother's stomach stored food for the baby when it came. I remember being 4 and seeing what I thought was a stork on my neighbor's roof, and screaming to my very pregnant mom at the time that our neighbor was trying to steal the new baby.
When I was small I knew that babies grew inside a woman but I didn't know how they got there. I was told that when a couple wanted a baby they would pray to God for one. I knew that that couldn't be the only thing that would be TOO easy so some how I got the idea in my head that a woman would have to take pill to get pregnant which is hilarious because it is the exact opposite.
When I was young every pregnant woman I knew was on WIC and therefore continually drinking apple juice. My conclusion? If you drink large amounts of apple juice an apple seed will fall in your tummy and grow a baby. Yep I told my pregnant aunt I knew where babies came from. She froze I warned her about the apple juice she laughed and agreed with me. I believed this for years. This ended up being my sex ed talk. Guess how I learned the truth.....
I used to believe that women had to take a tablet to get pregnant, that explained having to go the doctor :D
When I was 4, I thought you chose and bought your baby at the hospital. I believed this until I was 6.
When I was younger, my father was a very overweight man. I had watched my mother's belly grow as she was pregnant with my brother, and then decrease again once he was born. This of course, lead me to ask, "Daddy, when are you having your baby?" Later on I found out each one of us kids asked that very same question.
For quite a while I believed that a woman could get pregnant by kissing someone, because in elementary school we were shown a video about babies and they only showed a couple kissing in bed, without explaining the actual mechanics. Hence I thought couples who kissed were being extremely thoughtless and risky.
When I was younger I knew a little bit about sex, but I didn't really understand pregnancy. For some reason I thought that sperm was in a man's spit. To get pregnant the guy and the girl would both have to spit in a cup, and then stir it, the girl would then drink it and get pregnant.
I was an odd child.
