getting pregnantShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
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.
when i was about 9 i used to think that when a woman was due to have a baby all she'd have to do was push her bellybutton back in (sometimes it pops out) this was of course until i asked my mum who carefully explained everything to me.
Up until I was thirteen, when my mom gave me "The Talk" with the medical book, I thought a mom got pregnant by a dad feeding her his sperm with a spoon and then a baby would grow in the mom's stomach.
i used to think that girls got pregnant when they came face to face with a boy so i used to avoid standing near/running into boys
I was home schooled, so when my parents told me that babies were made when "Two people who love each other hold hands and make a wish" I believed it until I was 14.
