getting pregnantShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
When i was about 3 or 4, i asked this boy at playschool where babies came from, and he told me that girls get pregnant by drinking fizzy soft drinks. For about another 4 yrs i believed him and was terrified of drinking them in case i got pregnant, and even now i cant stand them.
For some reason it never occurred to me that other people drank them and didn't get pregnant. I was dumb..
When I was little, I asked my mom where babies came from. She said that when two people were in love, they would pray for one. Until I learned the truth, I told all of my friends not to pray because they might become pregnant!
When I was eight I used to think that in order to get a girl pregnant, you had to pee insider of her. I had no concept of what an actual orgasm was. This led me to be supremely confident in my ability to impregnate women, as I considered myself a masterful urinator at this point.
i believed if you had sex twice in a row you would have twins
i thought that way a woman would get pregnant was she would eat the baby. and when i would ask her "mom did you eat me so i could be in your tummy?" Mom thought it was halarios!
When I was little I thought that immediately after the words "I do" during a wedding ceremony were pronounced, that the bride immediately became pregnant. There was no way to stop it, it just had to happen because she was now married.
When I was younger (about 4-5 years old) I used to believe that men could get pregnant too, because I saw fat men in the streets, so once I asked to a man when was his due date?
I used to believe that when little girls were born, they were born with a small baby already in their stomach. I thought that as the little girl grew, the baby grew. Therefore, I always ate a little extra sometimes, because I thought I had to feed the baby to make it grow so that when I was supposed to, I would have the baby!
When I was about 4 or 5, I asked my parents where babies came from. My mom and dad, holding hands, smiled at each other and my mom said, "well, it takes a man and a woman." That's all she said! From then on (well, until I was about 10), I believed that after a man and a woman got married, they learned this special technique of putting their hands together. And, if they did this handshake/maneuver correctly, the woman would automatically become pregnant.
When I was really little I asked my mom the every famous question, "How are babies made?" She said that whenever you kissed someone, you would get pregnant. I was terrified because I kissed my dad on the cheek that morning and was crying because I thought I was pregnant and I was only six.
After finding my dad's stash of pornographic pictures I thought I learned about the birds and the bees: Pregnancy is initiated by putting a penis into a woman's mouth.
Very strange year of my life.
I used to stay away from the lake from my house because I believed that the tadpoles would get me pregnant.
I used to think that women got pregnant from eating chicken patties. I saw a pregnant woman eating a chicken patty on a TV show so naturally, I believed that was the reason.
My mom told me that only married couples could have babies, and it happened when they love each other a lot, so they ask God for one. I knew some unmarried people had babies, so I thought that they "tricked" God by wearing a wedding ring, having people call them Mrs., living in the same house, etc . . . basically PRETENDING to be married.
When I was about six I was at a family picnic and my aunt swallowed a watermelon seed. Well, 9 months later she had a baby, all the grown ups were joking that it was the seed that did it, for the next three or four years I honestly believed that if you swallowed a watermelon seed you'd get pregnant.
When I was about 2, my mother told me that she had a baby (my sister) in her tummy. I apparently looked at her with wide eyes and asked, "Why? Did you ate it?"
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.
When I was younger, I thought women HAD to have a baby. There was no way of stopping it, despite abortion. I just thought it came naturally...
I didn't even know it took two to create a baby!
When I was in grade school I must have heard somewhere (probably on tv)that a woman got pregnant after she and a man "slept together," so I asked my sister (5 years older)why my Mom wasn't pregnant when she slept with Dad every night. She told me, "Well, they don't just lay side by side in their pajamas, they have to be naked and then the man climbs on top of the woman and then they DO IT." After this conversation I believed that a couple stripped naked, got into bed with the man on top of the woman and then just slept like that all night, and this would make the woman pregnant. I thought it was understandable that my Mom wouldn't want to have any more kids because it would be awfully uncomfortable for her to have to sleep with my Dad laying on top of her when he is so much bigger and heavier than she is.
i thought if men didn't get their hair cut the wife would become pregnant because when my baby brother was born i heard my dad say that he had come home late one night and the barbers was shut. i learned much later that in those days the barbers was where they bought their condoms
