I used to believe that Test Tube Babies were babies that were born with problems, and they had to run Tests to make sure the babies tube was working properly.

I used to think that when a women gave birth that you would sit up on a tabele, life up your shirt, and the doctors would cut a circle in your stomach and then the baby would climb out of her stomach, then the doctor would simply just place the peice of the moms belly back on and it would be back to normal.

I used to think that babies actually grew in your stomach and i always wondered why they didn't get digested and pooed out. I believed this until i was about 8 years old.

When I found out that only women can have babies, I used to think that a baby could just come out any time I went to the bathroom. Whenever I sat down, I would think, "I hope this isn't the time the baby comes."

When I was little, a friend of my parents gave birth to twins, and although I already knew (sort of) about sex and pregnancy I didn't understand why she would give birth to 2 children at a time. Another kid explained to me that the longer you have sex, the more children you'll get. This kept me worried for years, as no one had ever told me after how many minutes I'd have to stop having sex to get only one child, and I envisioned myself getting much too many children at a time... Until finally I found out that reality was actually a bit different... phew!

I used to believe that babies came out of my belly button and i was always really facinated by how such a big thing as a baby can come out from a little button hole

I really used to believe that a C-section was another name for natural birth. My mom had a C-section for me and another for my brother and she used to show us the small scar and tell "you came out of here, the doc cut my belly and I had you first and then your brother".

I believed this until I was 14, when (at school) they showed a video of a natural birth. I was totally scared and couldn't imagine how can a baby the size of a watermellon could come out of that small hole. I called my mom begging her to go home and throwed up for days.

Still scared of natural births!

when i was born i was a difficult birth and i came out rear first. one day when i was old enough to wonder about such things, i asked my mother about my birth, she told me that the doctors had to pull me out with forceps. for years after that i wejt round telling everyone i had been given FALSE HIPS :)

i used to think that when a baby was ready to be born, the doctor pulled it out through the mother's bellybutton. kind of like how a clown pulled tied-together scarves out of their pocket or sleeve.

I used to think that babies came through your stomachs. Like a hole would just open up in your belly and out comes the baby.

When we were little, my sister always wondered how women had babies. I would just tell her that they came out of mommy, just like she did.

A few weeks ago, she finally admitted to thinking that a mommy un-velcroed her stomach and just pulled the baby out once her belly button had popped out. (That was the sign of the baby being ready to come out.)

Now that she's older, she finally knows the difference. haha.

When I was about 6 or 7, I still had a vague idea that babies came from their mommy's tummy, but I had no clue as to how they got there in the first place, or how they got out. Then I saw a TV program that showed footage of a cat giving birth. I went to my Mom and proudly announced that I now knew how babies are born. Curious (and nervous), she asked me how. I proudly announced with a big smile that "the mother POOPS them out!" Well, she laughed so hard she almost s--t a brick herself, and when she finally calmed down, she carefully and gently explained the concept of there being more than one orifice in the female body....

Until I was 11 or 12, I would look at our neighborhood granny, and then at her adult son - perhaps he was in his thirties then - and I would wonder how she was able to give birth to such a big baby! It never occurred to me that he was born tiny, and grew up to be a big man!

I used to think that when a baby was born and the doctor slapped the baby, he was doing that to stop all the nurses in the room from chit chating so that he could make an announcement about the baby's gender . You know like an MC 'tings' a wineglass at a wedding or party so that people stop talking for him give a toast.

I used to think that babies came out of the same hole poop did. On occasion when poop hurt coming out I figured it was okay because I was just practicing for the baby.

When my mother was expecting my brother, I was confused when she packed baby clothes into her hospital suitcase. She said they were to bring the baby home in them. I asked her why she didn't bring him home in the clothes he was born in.

As a young boy, I had a "vague" concept of the female anatomy, but I knew that babies had to come out somewhere. I originally guessed this was in the chest area, but after I learned after bikinis, rib cages, and where it actually is, I corrected myself. This frequently made me wonder what the big deal was with female legs since I thought "But there's nothing down there!"
