getting pregnantShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
Maybe it was because I went to a Catholic elementary school, but I thought that God would randomly chose whether or not to make a women pregnant. I planned on praying to God to not make me pregnant the second I got married.
One day when I was younger, I was angry at my father and complaining to my mom. She told me that I should be grateful to him, because without him, I wouldn't be there. They were trying to get pregnant at the time, and one day I saw him giving her hormone shots- for years after that, I was convinced that sex was when fathers gave shots to the mothers, and they led to pregnancy.
I used to believe that after 9 months, mothers went to the hospital to buy a baby off the doctors.
i used to believe if you touched a girls knickers she would get pregnant
I used to believe that if you loved someone with all your heart you would become pregnant.
When I was little, I thought that babys were developed in a woman's stomach, and you couldn't eat food while you were pregnant.
My mom and I had gone out to lunch with my Aunt, who was pregnant. She wasn't eating anything, so I told her: "Don't worry Auntie, you can eat again soon."
When I was about 10-12 I believed that you got pregnant just hanging around a boy. I believed this because I asked my mom how women got pregnant and she (not wanting to tell me the real way) said it happened after you were married. To me this meant that you must have to be around the man a lot. I worried that if I hung around with my brother who was just a year older and very close that I would get pregnant and then what would I do?
I used to believe that babies came from my parents kissing, and that every time they did, the baby switched from my Mom to my Dad through the mouth. I thought that they had to count every time they kissed, so that they made sure my Mom got the final switch to have the baby.
I have always wondered where the baby bump came from, so i asked my mum she said "We eat balloons and that's how we get it". I believed it until I was 10 I asked my mum again she said "What the heck?! we don't eat balloons!"
When I was little i believed that women cannot get pregnant if they had a belly piercing
When I was about 4 or 5, a friend told me if you ate watermelon seeds you would become pregnant. I believed this for a long time.
I used to believe that you had flat babies in your tummy and when you'd get married, they'd automatically grow to a real baby. So when my dad put me in the car seat, I yelled: "LOOK OUT FOR MY FLAT BABIES!!"
When I was younger (6-7) I loved to read. I used to read books about human antomy. There was always a page abot babies. And the page would show a sperm meeting an egg. Si I thought if a mommy and daddy were touching tummys the sperm would travel through the tummys.
When I was little my sister convinced me that you got pregnant by eating watermelon seeds. This she told me right after I ate watermelon. I freaked out and my mom reasured me that was not how you get pregnant.
When I was little, my cousin told me that if i licked my feet, I would get babies.
When I was little I heard on the news they were talking about banning the morning after pill. I ask my dad "Why would they want to ban a pill curing a hangover? People need that so they can live through the day without vommiting!" I guess the really morning after pill helps the vommiting as well.
When I finally understoof what sex was and that babies were the result of it, I thought that EVERY time a woman had sex. she got pregnant, So when I would hear of people on television or in real life who were shocked that they were pregnant (or their husbands/ boyfriends were shocked) I couldn't understand the reason for their confusion; after all, they knew thay had had sex!!
I used to think babies were made by just lying down naked in your bed.
Then you wake up and God puts a baby in your belly.
When I was young I used to hear about teen pregnancy where the girl would say "I never thought it would happen to me." I didn't know you needed both a boy and a girl to get pregnant at the time so I was always worried I would just "become" pregnant when I became a teen, like those other girls did. Because I didn't think it could happen to me, so therefore it probably would.
When I was around 7, my older sister and I were at the super market, I remember her telling me that if I were to eat purple lettuce, i'd get pregnant.. don't know how I just remember that.
