getting pregnantShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
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
I used to believe that moms get pregnant just by praying to God..
When i was 3 i asked my mom how she got pregnant.. She told me she just prayed everyday so that God will give her a baby boy..Thinking it was true, the stupid me wanted to have a baby of my own (at the age of 3!hahaha)..in the end, i kept on praying secretly everyday, even kneeling down to the floor! months passed and i kept on checking my tummy--still flat..so i ended giving up and told myself my mom was a liar..
just laughing at this good ol memory everytime i would have my anatomy class..never thought having babies could be so exciting and complicated..hehehe..sigh* (",)
When I was 5, my mom was pregnant. I already knew where babies come from so I asked her if the baby would be a boy or a girl. She says it depends on what you eat. If you eat meat then the baby would be a boy, if you eat fruits and vegetables then the baby would be a girl. I always believed her ever since because she ate meat during the pregnancy of me and my brother, and for my sisters pregnancy she ate fruits and veggies...
Before i knew about babies and where they came from..
I just thought that pregnant women were just really really fat :D
When I was little and heard about how babies originated from eggs in your stomach, i always thought that the egg was originally a seed that grew to an egg. either you were born with the seed or not. I would go to my parents and asked them if they could feel the seed moving in my stomach and was very disappointed when they said it wasn't there.
I used to believe that you could choose the sex of your child because of what a classmate told me in the fifth grade.
I thought that if you wanted a boy, a man inserted his penis in a woman's vagina. If you wanted a girl, a man would insert his penis in a woman's anus. And that if a man urinated into a woman's vagina this would create conjoined twins.
I was a gullible 11-year old
My mother was pregnant when I was 7 and I asked where babies come from. The only part I remember is "daddy plants a seed" so I thought babies were planted outside the hospital windows in flower pots.
