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.
I used to believe babies could either be girls, boys, or alligators.
When I was three and my mom was pregnant with my sister, she hadn't told me yet, but was getting a lot bigger. I decided she must have swallowed a watermelon seed and was growing a watermelon in her stomach.
When I was in 9th grade, some friends and I were talking about a girl at our school who had gotten pregnant. One of my friends (a very naive 15-year-old boy) said, "I can't believe she wanted a baby so young!" Another friend answered that she doubted the girl actually WANTED to get pregnant, and that it was most likely an accident. My friend (the boy) said, "How do you accidentally get pregnant? Why didn't she just not have sex for a few weeks after she found out she was pregnant?" We were all completely puzzled. Then we made him explain what he meant:
My friend was under the impression that the reason it took 9 months to have a baby was that you had to have sex EVERY DAY for 9 months to make the baby. Like each time would add a piece. And if you just stopped doing it, the pregnancy would "go away".
The rest of us could not stop laughing. We collectively explained the truth to him, though he did continue to be mystified by the female reproductive system for at least a few years after that.
when I was little , I used to believe that babies were made by eating bowls of salt. But now I am 24 and I know that is no by far it is not true!
when my younger brother was 3 or 4, he had grasped the concept that he came from "mommy's tummy," but developed a strong fear that he might have to go back in her tummy someday. he expressed his concern about this and felt he was too big to go back in, so he hoped this wasn't required.
I used to think that when you kissed at a wedding, you would get pregnant and that you would never know how many children you would get, they would just start coming.
I use to believe that when a guy and a girl kissed that part of the guys tongue fell off and the girl swallowed it and that's how you got pregnant
