getting pregnantShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
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.
I used to believe that when a couple got married the ring the man gave to the woman made her get pregnant.
When I was 6 or 7 I asked my dad where babies come from. He told me that they come from willy. So for a good time after that I thought that every time I went for a pee that a baby was going to come up from around the U bend.
I had a kitten in my house and loved her a lot.My mom wanted to get rid of her so she told me that if i play with the kitten,i'll get pregnant.For quite sometime i checked my tummy to see if some kitten is popping up.
I used to believe that babies were conceived by means of saliva.
That when people kissed at a wedding that's when the women got pregnant
At age 5, I asked my mother where babies came from and she said the daddy fertilized the woman. It was summer and the next day my father was fertilizing our lawn with a spreader. My friend Julie and I were playing when I saw him coming. In a panicked voice i yelled, "run, Julie, run! My daddy will fertilize you and you'll have a baby!!"
i really dont know where i thought babies came from...... i think that i thought that you could just say"i want to be pregnant" and POP you had a big belly!
I use to believe that all you did is pee on each other in order to get pregnant!! This is what my best friend in 2nd grade told me! lol Believed this till the 5th grade!
My parents told me that babies were made when a mother and a father wrestled. I used to believe the loser was the one who got pregnant.
When I was little I thought that (if you were a girl) you were always pregnant it just took years to develop, and when you got married you finally started to show of being pregnant.
When I was about 4 my mom told me she got me in the supermarket, in the section with babies. For a long time I had a clear visual picture of my mom deciding which baby to pick and how she looked at the price. Funny though, I'd never seen a baby section in our supermarket. Guess I'd been at the wrong store! :-))
I thought nothing was involved in getting pregnant, it was just something that happened every now and then to all women!
When I was little I thought to have a baby a mother swallowed an egg and then it grew in her stomach until she had birth. I still have know idea where this idea came from.
When we were young, my cousin and I heard her older sisters, most of whom were in their mid 20s, talking about maternity clothes. We were convinced that if you wore maternity clothes, you would get pregnant immediately! We were terrified!
When I was little, sex was explained to me as "a special cuddle in bed". My mom wouldn't tell me what made the cuddle special and so I refused to get in bed with my parents for the next few years for fear I might accidentally have the "special cuddle" and get pregnant.
One time when I was younger, I accidentally used my cousin's toothbrush. Since my cousin was a boy, I thought I would get pregnant just by using his toothbrush.
