my friend used to think that a miscarriage was when the mom dropped their babies in a grocery store
I used to think that all babies were born in the middle of the night.
When I saw scenes on t.v. where a woman would give birth (not graphic scenes- just hear the woman scream and a doctor would be there and then suddenly the doctor would be holding a baby) I thought the baby actually came out of the woman's stomach, I think one time I asked my mom how the doctor could get the baby out of the woman's stomach. She didn't really answer!
I used to believe, when my mom told me babies came out of mothers' stomachs, that their pregnant tummies lifted open, just like the hood of a car. It made sense to a 5 year old me.
I used to think that when babies were born they came out of the belly button.
when i was younger, i had this body book that explained lots of things, but i only looked at the pictures cuz i never felt like reading it. there was this one part about having babies and it had a drawn picture of a woman having a baby and it looked like the baby was coming out of a slit in her inner thigh. for the longest time, i thought this was how a baby was born until 5th grade when we had sex-ed and i found out that that is not in fact how a baby is born. needless to say, i was a little emberessed...
when i was little i thought that babies came from your belly button until one day when a girl in my class asked me if i knew where babies came from..when i said yea shes like "the...you know..." then i figured it out for sure and asked my mom what happens if you have to pee. stunned that i knew thats how you give birth she just said on the table...i was so confused
I once saw a film where a had came out of a guys shoulder.
I was sure that this is how babies where born, and this belief was reinforced when I was at my friends house, whose mum was a nurse, and she had a strange yellow pointy stick think in a drawer. I still have no idea what the hell it was, but I thought at the time that the yellow pointy stick was used to cut a circle out of whoever was having the babies upper back/shoulder area, and then the baby would be pulled out. I believed this for years, until it slowly dawned on me that there was rather more to it than that...
My Aunt is a family doctor, and once told me about a 29, that's 29 year old woman who came ot her with her first pregnancy.
So my aunt settled her down for a pelvic examination, and the woman was actingas if she was extremely uncomfortable. Finally, my aunt actually started to do the internal, and the woman leapt up, pushed her hand away, proclaimed, 'Not there Doctor!' and burst into tears.
It turned out that she had somehow been under the impression that babies were born through the umbilical cord, and the process of labour was the time when the cord extended out - much like an extendable staircase, or tje emergency slide on an airplane - from the belly button.
When I was in 3rd grade this boy in my class I dont remeber what he was doing i just remember him screaming OH MY GOD I THINK MY WATER BROKE! haha and at that time i knew what it meant i still laugh at it to this day! (im 18 now)
When I was young I saw my Mom's bellybutton and I thought it looked wrinkly. So I asked her why her bellybutton looked that way and she told me (not sure why) that it was from when I was born. So after that I believed baby's were born out of bellybuttons.
For several years, between the ages of about seven and eleven, I believed my sister when she told me my Uncle Bob wasn't born until he was 21. I used to worry over how he lived inside her and about how she gave birth to him.
I never understood when a mother gave birth, how the doctors found out if it was a boy or a girl. They shouted, "It's a boy!" or "It's a girl!" when it came out, I just thought that when the doctor slapped the baby's butt, that was the deciding factor and he would automatically know.
When I was little, like 5 or so, I thought that when a woman was having a baby, every time she went to the bathroom she pushed a little and the baby came out a little, and it took a while like days for it to be born all the way. I don't know what I thought, maybe that she would walk around with a baby hanging out of her or something, but hey, I was 5!!
I used to believe that babies came out of the mom's belly button. I knew they came out of a hole in the body but being small I had no idea where this hole would be other than the belly button. Kinda figured what else was it good for.
When i was 6 or 7 i used to believe the all women gave birth through their mouths
i have a friend that believed that when a baby was born it came out of he mothers big toe!!
Once when I was seven or eight years old, my mom asked me if I knew where (on the body) babies come from. "Yeah," I said, "your butt."
I used to believe that babies were born from eggs (dinosaur eggs) and they would sit on them and keep them warm until they were ready to hatch
I used to think that to have a baby, the doctors had to cut your tummy open. Needless to say, I swore never to get pregnant.
