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.
I used to think that if you just laid in a bed, under the covers with a boy, and only if you were both naked, you would get pregnant.
I used to believe that if men and women moved during sex, they would not make a baby. In order to make a baby, they had to remain perfectly still after the man entered the woman. Why did I believe this? I have no idea.
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!"
