getting pregnantShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
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.
I grew up in a religious family and had always been taught that God made all of us , By observance I new babies grew in the mother's tummy. So I assumed that when God eas ready to make a new person, he just made one start growing in a woman's tunny.
When my sister and I (were 9 and 10) were younger, our older sister(who was 13 at the time) told us that she was pregnant because she took some pills and me and my sister believed her and did whatever she wanted us to do.....that lasted a day but I believed that you could get pregnant from pills until I was 13
When I was little I thought that immediately after the words "I do" during a wedding ceremony were pronounced, that the bride immediately became pregnant. There was no way to stop it, it just had to happen because she was now married.
I know this one is a lot like the "Brides become pregnant at the wedding" one, but is sorta different. Even instants right before my mom told me the truth, I used to believe that women could only become pregnant if they were married and really wished it or prayed for it. Ah... I want my innocence back!
I used to stay away from the lake from my house because I believed that the tadpoles would get me pregnant.
A common one due to TV shows. I thought those Stork birds used to carry babies and drop 'em off and your door.
When I was younger, I thought women HAD to have a baby. There was no way of stopping it, despite abortion. I just thought it came naturally...
I didn't even know it took two to create a baby!
Even though my mom told me how babies were made when I was little, she didn't give me enough info. I thought that people never actually have sex to have a baby. They just sleep and the sperm travel from the guy's body, traverse the bedsheets, and gets inside the woman's body by some kind of magical process.
Needless to say, I was very traumatized when I found out that you needed to do to get pregnant...
I used to think that babies were made when a male's and female's bellybutton touched each other.
when i was little i use to think women got pregnant if they took baths to long....dont know why but i was a weird kid
i used to believe that when man and woman dance in rain ,then they hav child due to bollywood movies
when i was little, i used to think that women became pregnant by liking a man
When I was young, I used to think that women get pregnant just by eating watermelon and cheese together, for some reason!
When I was little I thought you got pregnant by swallowing watermelon seeds because my parents always told me if I swallowed a seed a watermelon would grow in my tummy.
