getting pregnantShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
My poor Dad was mortified by my questions about where babies come from, so he told me that he had planted a seed in Mummy's tummy. I honestly believed that he dug up Mummy's tummy with a spade (while he was naked too, bizarrely enough), and planted a single seed. I couldn't understand how a seed could grow in blood and guts instead of soil, but I suppose I didn't ponder it too much at that age.
I used to think that the "testies" were little balls and he penis was a sack that held the balls. When two people wanted to have a kid, a man would get his sack (Which was in a drawer, hidden where no one could find it) (Yes, I looked for it) and give one ball to the woman. She would insert it into her ear (How did it fit?) and then, a year later, A BABY!!!!
One time when I was younger, I accidentally used my cousin's toothbrush. Since my cousin was a boy, I thought I would get pregnant just by using his toothbrush.
When I was 6 years old, I thought the way in which a woman got pregnant carried out as follows: The married couple would go to a restaurant where they would sit at a table naked. Then they would each drink of glass of each other's urine. The woman would then be pregnant. I was absolutely repulsed by this idea and never wanted to have sex.
I was a reader when I was young and we had these old kids' books full of facts that I loved to read. One was "All About the Human Body" and it explained eggs, sperm, and fertilization. There were also anatomical diagrams I didn't understand, but the books were from the 50s so they were too conservative to explain anything more. So I knew sperm from the man's body had to somehow get into the woman's body for there to be a baby. When I asked my mom about this subject, she used to say it was "a special kind of love" between two people. So I thought that after two people fell in love and got married, they would walk down the street (or something), and the sides of their bodies would touch while they were walking. The sperm would somehow pass through their skin from the man to the woman, and then she would get pregnant. The funniest thing is that I imagined all this taking place with their clothes on because it literally never occurred to me they might take them off in front of each other.
when I was about 4 and asked how babies were made my mum and dad told me that it was a special cuddle. I was scared of hugging anyone for ages.
I used to think that reproduction happened when grown ups were asleep in the same bed together and the penis would just crawl over to the woman and get her pregnant with out anyone waking up or doing anything.
I thought you could get pregnant from sitting on a boy's bed. So all thoughout 3rd grade I was sure I was pregnant and I cried everyday, because I was too embaressed to tell anyone. It wasn't until I realized after months my abdomen hadn't grown that I wasn't pregnant.
When I was around 5 years old, I heard from several friends that if you ate a watermelon seed you would get pregnant. I ate a lot of watermelon seeds that summer...I loved babies and couldn't wait to be a mom!
When I was little I asked my mum how some eggs have chicks in and some don't. She told me that a girl hen just had to see a boy hen and the eggs would have chicks in. I believed that until I was 14!
I used to believe that if you were having a baby and wanted it to have curly hair you would simply just get a perm while being pregnant.
When I got my period for the first time, I went to school,proud of becoming a woman, and told my best friend all about it. she simply said "you better be careful you can get pregnant now" I was so nieve... I was scared that I would just get pregnant at any moment. i believed that until i found out about sex.
Well this is quite embarrassing but right up to the age of 16 i thought twins were concieved by having sexual intercourse again when ur already pregnant
When I was 5 years old, I really wanted a baby brother. My aunt told me that if my mom swallowed a pumpkin seed, she would have a girl. If she swallowed a watermelon seed, she would have a boy. So, I avoided eating both, and made my mom swallow a watermelon seed, which she "did". Nine months later, I had a baby brother. I really believed in it until we learned how it really happened.
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 thought when your parents have you they choose if you are a boy or girl (or at least the mother chooses but I figured she and the father would discuss it a lot before she made her choice)
When I was younger, my father was a very overweight man. I had watched my mother's belly grow as she was pregnant with my brother, and then decrease again once he was born. This of course, lead me to ask, "Daddy, when are you having your baby?" Later on I found out each one of us kids asked that very same question.
When I was a little kid, I used to believe babies were made by God up in heaven, then once the baby had been matched with the perfect family, a ray of sunshine would put the baby in the mother's tummy. I used to believe this because my mom told me that this was how I was made.
When I was about five my dad and I were on our way back from the lake. My mom was not around. I asked my dad out of nowhere where babies came from. He was really quiet, and then he asked me if I wanted to wait and talk to mommy about it. I told him no, we had a long car ride he could tell me, I didnt want to wait for mommy. He thought for a minute, and then told me that when a mommy and a daddy loved eachother they would hug and when thier bellies bounced together it made a baby.
For years I was terrified that if I hugged anyone of the opposite sex, I would get pregnant!
I only found out otherwise when I was on a playdate and my friend hugged her daddy. I screamed out, "Dont let your bellies touch, you will get pregnant!"
Thanks, Dad.... See why it is important to tell kids the truth?
When i was young my dad covered my eyes when we passed a gaint billboard which was advertising something. It showed a man with his nose pressed in between a woman's brests. As a result for years afterwards I used to think this was the rude thing parents did in order to make babies!
