getting pregnantShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
I used to believe that you got pregnant just in the same way you caught a cold. A man would cough on you or sneeze on you.
I used to believe it took two hours to make a baby, and if the couple wanted twins they should have sex for four hours, triplets? Six hours! And so on...
When I was little, I overheard my mother telling her friend that my cousin Dorothy was going to have a baby. I asked how that could happen, since Dorothy had no husband. My mother whispered that "Dorothy was a bad girl." From then on, I tried to be really good because if I wasn't, I would get a baby and everyone would know I was a "bad girl!"
My sister and I thought that when girls were born, they already had a baby inside them and that they would start growing when you became a grown up. So needless to say, we washed our abdomens extremely well, thinking that we were keeping the baby clean.
To explain sex to me, my parents just showed my a video. It showed the sperm travelling to the egg and such, but it never said how the sperm GOT there. It never explained sex. This led me to believe that after a woman started her period, she would just constantly get pregnant unless she kept taking the pill. Her body would just keep making babies one after another.
After watching the video, this belief firmly planted in my mind, I told my mom, "When I get older I'm definitely going to be on the pill. Otherwise I'll be getting pregnant all the time." Imagine what my poor mom must have thought!
If a woman wanted a baby, she wouldeat baby food, this would make a baby in her stomach. She would then poo it out. =]
A girl could get pregnant going to the bathroom after a boy.
When i was little, about 4. I heard the grown-ups discussing the 'Honeymoon' and 'Wedding night' at a Wedding and grin to themselves. When I asked my dad what they meant he told me that the Bride and Groom would go to their room on their Wedding night and call the stork to make an appointment. They'd then go on Honeymoon to meet the stork and tell him what kind of baby they wanted. When the stork found the right baby for them he'd deliver it to their house.
Until the age of 10 i believed this lie explicitly.
When I was little, I thought that all girls when they became a certain age (21 or so) got pregnant. They were very unlucky if they were not married by then. I remember watching a show on TV and feeling sorry for the main character because she had not managed to find a husband before she became pregnant.
my sisters used to believe that the small seeds on strawberries made you pregnant..
My mom used to have a friend who was in a large Catholic family with 12 siblings. They ate a lot of beans. Thus, Mom made the connection that beans made you pregnant.
When I was in the first grade I thought I'd cracked the mystery of how babies are made: I'd heard on the playground that a man and woman get naked then rub their nipples together. For some reason, this made perfect sense.
At one point, after the part in sex ed about egg and sperm uniting but before the mechanics were explained, I thought the sperm could travel around-- on chairs, the floor, etc-- and climb into a woman. After all, how else could it happen by accident?
When I was in junior high school, sex education was taught separately to the girls and boys. The teacher pulled down a chart of female reproduction organs and showed us how the egg traveled from the ovaries, through the fallopian tubes, and into the uterus where it was fertilized by sperm. She rolled up that chart before pulling down another of the male reproduction organs. She then traced the journey of the sperm from the testicles through the penis. And, then, up went that chart, out of sight. What she never explained was how the sperm and the egg actually got together. It seemed like the "fast girls" who always got asked to slow-dance always got pregnant. As a result, I did not dance slow with a boy for years, thinking that slow-dancing was the key to pregnancy! I was a virgin until my second year of college!!
When I was little I used to think that a man and woman would get undressed, she would lay down on the back on a bed and he would get on top of her, but I knew nothing about him having to "enter" her. So I thought once he was on top of her they would hold on to eachother and roll around the bed. When he ejaculated I thought they sperm were like the size of a quarter and about 20 or so would be racing around the bed trying to beat eachother to her vagina as the couple continued to roll around and the ones that didn't make it would swim back inside of the man and then the sex was over. That is why I thought sex was fun because they got to roll around and as the sperm were racing eachother. I thought it was like a game.
When I was young, I used to think that women get pregnant just by eating watermelon and cheese together, for some reason!
i used to believe that when man and woman dance in rain ,then they hav child due to bollywood movies
I grew up in a religious family and had always been taught that God made all of us , By observance I new babies grew in the mother's tummy. So I assumed that when God eas ready to make a new person, he just made one start growing in a woman's tunny.
When I was only 3-7 years old I used to tell all my friends that if you put your tongue in someone else's mouth you'll get pregnant. So whenever my parents started kissing I woukd scream that I didn't want a little brother or sister
I used to believed that a woman got pregnant when she married, even if she never had sex, but if she wasn't married she had to sleep with someone to have a baby.
My friend teased me and said that his parents never had sex because they where married and my parents had sex because the where not. I started crying and ran home when he told me, thinking that i really had to get married so i would not have to have sex.
