getting pregnantShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
There was this girl who thought her mum became pregnant by drinking water and that we shouldn't drink any ourselves.
(she was only 5 then!! bless her!)
I believed when I was really little, that if you went into Mothercare you would become pregnant.
when i was younger, i believed that girls got pregnate by eating peas. because of the little seeds on the inside. my cousin had a poster on her wall that had a bunch of pea pods and babies inside them... that is was gave me the idea. i didn't eat peas for as long as i could remember and it was hard because i loved them.
i used to believe that gettin pregnant was like ordering a pizza, you'd phone up a special number and get a baby within 30 minitues or the next one would be free. lol boy was i wrong.!!!!!!!!
I thought women got pregnant by eating watermelon seeds. needless to say I never ate them until I was aware of the truth....about age 11.
When I was a little girl I thought that virginity was a diease that prevented a woman from becoming pregnant. I thought this because the church I went to said it was a miracle for the virgin mary to becoming pregnant. I was 13 before I found out what it really meant.
I told my son that he used to be in my tummy when he was 4. So he asked me," Mommy why did you swollow me?"
My mother is a baby boomer and when she was young, parents were very secretive and unapproachable when it came to discussions of puberty and sex. Naturally, it was fairly difficult to get accurate information about anything. When my mom was little and first heard that people had to have sex to have a baby, she was disgusted and confided this to her friend. The friend reassured her by saying, "That can't be true. My mother is having a baby, and Daddy is away."
When I was little, a friend offered to share her chewing gum (already chewed) with me and I told her I couldn't because I didn't want to get pregnant!
I used to think that the way mommies got pregnant was if they ate a lot.
I believed that women got pregnant through the belly button, since that is where the umbilical cord is attached
i used to think that when girls got older and got married, they could just want to have a kid and magically it would happpen.
I used to think that you get pregnant when the mummy kisses the daddy. Then I realised that couldn't be true because my mum and dad kissed all the time. I was confused. When I was 8 or 9 my mum told me about sex. I knew already about sex and thought it was naughty. I said '' but mummy you and daddy never had sex did you?'' then she explained
When I was around 5, my mom took me to a science museum. They had a display about reproduction, which included a mural featuring sperm. After seeing this, I came to the conclusion that when parents have their "wedding kiss", sperm comes out of the guys mouth and gets the girl pregnant.
when i got my first period, my mom had told me that i was able to get pregnant now. and she didnt think she would have to tell me about the birds and bees again so she thought i understood that i had to have sex to have a baby.but i forgot all about it. so i layed upstairs in my bed as flat as a board so i wouldnt scrunch up my belly and make it bigger and get pregnant. until after about 4 hours my mom came up and sorted it all out with me haha
Me and my parents are fairly typical Brits; not uptight, exactly, but we don't discuss certain matters. So when I found a book in the library at school about the facts of life, I was curious and naturally I had a look. Now, the pictures in those books are kind of complicated, and I didn't have a lot of time to look at it, so for many many years I thought that a man put his leg (right up to the hip) inside a woman to make a baby. I was quite relieved when I found out how it really works.
When I was maybe 14 or so, I was walking home from school with my best friend Cindy. She wanted to ask me a question, and said 'dont laugh at me'. I told her I wouldn't. She asked: 'Can you get pregnant from a tampon?'
I was NOT sexually active yet, but was well informed by my Mother, who believed that if you didn't educate your children, you were only doing them a disservice.
I explained to her that penetration wasn't the cause of pregnancy, SPERM was.
I used to believe that to get pregnant you needed to touch your vagina. For a long time i avoided touching it, so i never wiped it after going to the loo. once I touched it in the shower I screamed to my mum that I had had sex and that I was pregnant. She took me to the docter and you can imagine that I was deadly embarresed because of one thing.
I was 15.
I thought that when a man and a woman wanted to have a baby, the man would stick his penis into a woman's belly button and urinate into her stomach. He would then do this everyday for 9 months. I thought that he kept doing it every day so the baby inside had room to swim around as it grew. I then thought that when the baby got a certain size, it would then wake up and then crawl its way through the woman's intestines and then push itself out of her anus. I thought they were telling a woman to push it out her ass like it were a piece of shit. Since i was a male, the only forms of pushing i could thing of was using your hands to push an object and pushing crap out your ass. I also came to the conclusion that woman had extra arms inside their butts that would help push out the baby.
When my sister was little she thought that when girls were born, they were born with a tiny, tiny baby all ready inside their stomachs ands as you grow, the baby grows until one day it ets to big to stay inside.
Imagine my mothers suprise when my 4 year-old sister told her she had a " tiny person growing in her tummy".
