High school field trip to the zoo. Whale with a HUGE erection. Crystal kept screaming "look, look, it's having a baby". We were all to embarassed to explain it to her. It was pretty funny.

I don't think so.

I used to believe that when a mum was pregant she would press her belly button and the baby would pop out of it. But she could only do this when her belly had grown.

I used to believe that all pregnant women gave birth to their babies on Labor Day, which was why it was called what it was.

By the time I was going to deliver my first baby, I knew better, of course, but as it happened, I did go into labor on Labor Day.

I used to believe that giving birth was much easier than it apparently is. Like, I recall joking with a friend when I was about five that if his mom had pushed too hard when she was on the toilet that he would have popped out.

I used to believe that pregnant women could sit down on the toilet and accidentally give birth, and it scared me because the baby would likely drown in the water, but also because if it happened to me, I wouldn't want to have to reach into the poopy water for my baby.

My 6 year old little sister once told me that she thought babies came out of their mother's mouth. She even opened her mouth to show me. She was absolutely baffled when I told her that babies did not, in fact, come out of mouths.

I had a friend explain to me in the first grade that when a mom gives birth it is actually a surgery that removes the baby from the mommy by cutting off the mommy's head and pulling the baby out of her neck. And then her head is glued back together. Did I mention my friend is an only child?

When I was 3 years old, I gave my mom a crystal-like thing when she was in hospital and prepared to give birth. I told her that if she brings the 'lucky stone' with her when she was giving birth she will born a baby girl because i wanted a sister so much. But she gave birth to a baby boy instead and i was angry because she didn't bring my stone with her.

Already having known how babies are born, my older brother once told me when I was about 9 that the doctor would have to put his penis in me (vaginally) if I was pregnant, because otherwise, the baby would not be able to fit through.

I must have overheard my mother talking about how babies come from your vagina, because I proudly informed my kindergarten class about how babies come from "China".

When my daughter was about 3 or 4 we watched a labor and delivery show on tv. As she watched the woman scream and push she asked why she was trying to use the bathroom on the table..After stiffling a laugh I explained that the woman was not using the bathroom but pushing out a baby. My daughter gasped and "oh my god she ate a baby!"

Until I was five or six, I thought that you gave birth from a birthmark. I always wondered how it was possible that I came out of my mother's ankle.

Before i even knew about the three-hole-system, i used to think that a mother would give birth to her child through her butt-hole. because of this, i thought you couldnt poop while you were pregnant and you would have to hold your poo until you had your baby. i didnt want to become pregnant because of this.

my mother was frustrated with me asking how babies were made until she finally sat me down and tried to explain it. She said that when a man and a woman love each other very much and have been married for a long time they go to bed, take off all of their clothes and then ....make love.... then nine months later a baby comes out. (the obvious questions that surrounded what "make love" meant seemed unimportant at the time.) What I could not figure out is HOW the baby came out. My mom told me that when it was time the woman "just knew" and she would push. I asked her if it was like going number two and she said yes. I was satisfied with that answer and she was relieved. But for the next several years I would check the toilet every time she or I had gone to see if there would be a baby in the bowl.

For a long time, I thought that the word "premie" meant a baby born without hair. (I think this was because the Premie Cabbage Patch doll my neighbor had was bald).

Until I reached 13, and sex-ed class explained how it really worked; I believed that somehow babies came out of their mommies belly button. I just couldn't figure out how it opened up.

I always was under the impression as long as i could remember that the only way to deliver babies was from the buttonhole cause that was the only hole in the female's body i had presumed.
