getting pregnantShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
When I was younger I thought that a man cut a womans belly open and planted a water melon seed, that would later become a baby. And that when the baby was born the belly would completly fall off and in it would be the baby and like an egg it would hatch. I was GREATLY dissapointed when my mom made me stay at grandmas for the hatching of my brother.
when i was a little kid, i thought i had invented the condom. i heard about accidental pregnancies and thought, "hey! why doesn't the boy put a plastic bag over his thing?!" i thought i was a genious!
i really dont know where i thought babies came from...... i think that i thought that you could just say"i want to be pregnant" and POP you had a big belly!
My older sister told me that you got pregnant by a boy peeing in your mouth. I was so grossed out I swore off ever having kids.
My mom told me that in order to get pregnant and give birth to a baby, woman must eat only chocolate exclusively for 9 month... and I used to believe her... Then one day we were playing in the yard and one of the older boys started scientific explanations of the process, I disagreed and we had a fight. Kids around us divided in two camps, half believed to me and half - to him. At the end we all made peace and decided that both ways probably work...
for awhile (thanks to my dad) I believed that a girl got pregnant from touching a doorknob at the same time as a boy from opposite sides, when I started walking around trying to open doorknobs with my elbows, my mom noticed and asked me about it, when I said "I'm trying ot to get pregnant" - she went and found my dad and told him to "fix me". So he told me that you could get pregnant only if you drank from the same cup as a boy - I never even shared a cup with girls - just in case!
As a child I believed that you got pregnant by sitting on the same toliet seat as a man did. That's why my sister and I could never go into our parent's bathroom. One time my mother let me and I was sure that I was pregnant the next day when I had a stomach ache.
I thought nothing was involved in getting pregnant, it was just something that happened every now and then to all women!
That when people kissed at a wedding that's when the women got pregnant
Up until about 7 when my friend Zoe told me how babies were born and made, I had a thought that exactly right after the groom and bride kissed, she would just need to go to the hospital even though she had a flat belly. Then at the hospital a baby just popped out and they had a baby. The woman had no pain whatsoever and she was mom. That was my belief until Zoe trotted along and ruined my belief xD
I used to believe that the only way you could get pregnant was by getting shot since you had the baby in the hospital and there was blood and everything; oh how wrong I was.
I used to think that how babies were made was that when people got married, some magical force knew that they then wanted a baby and gave them one.
When I was in 2nd grade I thought if a boy touched a girls stomach she would get pregnant. So one day i was out side playing and a boy toched my stomach and i cried for days!!
i used to believe that the way u get pregnent is to eat twice or more than your usual eating portion. So i wanted a baby sister and would feed my mom more food each time she ate.
when i was little, i thought that there was a big factory filled with fish tanks full of babies and ladies would come in and say that they wanted babies, so a man would hook a vacuum up from the fish tank to the lady's belly button and it would suck the baby into her belly.
When my friend announced that she was going to have a baby (she already had a boy aged 4) my daughter (aged 7) said, "You mean that you and Leroy (her husband) had sex AGAIN. I did not bother to correct her.
I used to believe that pregnant woman had to hold it until the baby came out because the baby would block the pee!
After quizzing my mum about babies in tummies, I used to think that eggs and sperm got together in the toilet as that was the only place that mummy and daddy's 'bits' ever shared.
When my mom was pregnant with my younger sister, I overheard her telling someone on the phone that she was the "black sheep" in her family.
Imagine my moms embarassment the next time I announced that my mom was pregnant...with a black sheep!
When I was about nine, I saw this Star Trek episode where Troy got pregnant when she was sleeping in her bed and this light came out of the sky and just popped into her body and she kind of moaned when it happened. I was terrified this would happen to me so I always kept the covers tucked in and completely covering my feet. Whenever I woke up suddenly in the middle of the night, I thought maybe it was because the light had somehow got through my covers and I was going to have a baby. It wasn't until I was older that I learned it was actually Jean-Luc Picard that got you pregnant.
