getting pregnantShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
When I was really young, I believed a woman got pregnant from the kiss at the wedding, and that after that kiss, they could pick and choose when and how many kids they wanted.
A few years later, my older brother told me that you got pregnant from 'sex', which was when a man and a woman slept together. I had see this on a movie before, so I thought they had to sleep together with the man on top all night long, which seemed really unfair to me because the man was so much bigger.
I use to believe a women got pregnant simply by laying naked next to a man in bed. I don't know how or why I came to this idea.
When my mom told me she was pregnant with my little brother, I asked where babies come from. Since I was only three she didn't want to go into details so she told me that when a mommey and a daddy love each other very much God puts a baby in the mommy's tummy. Me being the question asker I was asked if she had to go to heaven for God to put the baby there. My mom said not exactly, but if that's what you want to believe go ahead. A few months later my mom had my brother and my dad took me up to the hospital to see my mom and introduce me to him. When dad and I got in the elevator I asked my dad if we were going to heaven.
One day, when I was 6, my friend came giggle to school and I asked her why. She said she found out what sex was and I had no idea what the word even was. She told me it's when a guy and girl get naked and shower together while holding each other. I was so happy, because my infant brother always had showers together and I used to hold him, when my mom went to get our cloths. I told the whole school I was pregnant.
I used to believe that you got pregnant by seeing someone kiss and dance together. After watching a Madonna music video I secretly cried myself to sleep every night for a week thinking I was pregnant.
I used to go shopping with my mom when I was little. i was intrigued because every time we got eggs i was sure it was a new baby brother or sister. i was convinced my mom and dad picked my sisters out from a carton in the grocery store.
When i was little, about 4. I heard the grown-ups discussing the 'Honeymoon' and 'Wedding night' at a Wedding and grin to themselves. When I asked my dad what they meant he told me that the Bride and Groom would go to their room on their Wedding night and call the stork to make an appointment. They'd then go on Honeymoon to meet the stork and tell him what kind of baby they wanted. When the stork found the right baby for them he'd deliver it to their house.
Until the age of 10 i believed this lie explicitly.
I used to think that when pregnant women actually had parasols in their stomach so that they could easily go to the beach.
When I was six I thought that mothers already had babies inside them. I knew where they came from, that women had to give birth, but I thought that when the woman chose when to "have" it, like, get pregnant with it. I was not really that far off, when you think about it...
when i was younger my mom told me, you get pregnant when you & your bf/gf both ate alot of bread. i bleieved this until i was ten :|
When I was 6 years old, I thought the way in which a woman got pregnant carried out as follows: The married couple would go to a restaurant where they would sit at a table naked. Then they would each drink of glass of each other's urine. The woman would then be pregnant. I was absolutely repulsed by this idea and never wanted to have sex.
I thought when your parents have you they choose if you are a boy or girl (or at least the mother chooses but I figured she and the father would discuss it a lot before she made her choice)
When I was a little girl, all the "where babies come from" books said that babies are made in a special place between your legs.
I spent three years convinced that babies where conceived by rubbing your knees together.
When I was little, I was with my cousins and my aunt. My aunt decided she'd tell us a little about how babies are made. She said that "they take a part of the man and put it in the woman." I had always known where babies come out, so I thought the mommy and daddy went to the doctor and the doctor cut open the daddy's stomach, took a piece out, cut open the mommy's, put it in there, then the baby would grow in the stomach. :)
I used to believe that to have sex and to get pregnant a guy had to pee in the vagina. I didnt know that guys had other fluids...
A girl could get pregnant going to the bathroom after a boy.
I used to believe you could get pregnant by french kissing someone.
I used to believe that after a couple got married, they prayed to God for a baby and then one appeared in the woman's belly. Then when it was time for the baby to be born, it just magically appeared in front of them.
I used to believe a woman got pregnant because of the dance they did at their weddings. And to stop having babies, they took birth control, but if they wanted another, all the woman had to do was quit taking birth control and she would become pregnant.
I used to believe that if I kissed my stuffed animals that I would get pregnant. I once cried thinking I had gotten pregnant from a stuffed teddy bear.
