I used to believe that the sex of the baby was determined by the length of the pregnancy at birth.
My mother once said, when I was about 5, that if I was born eirlier, I would have been a girl. Much later I found that she said that because she had a miscarriage of a female fetus before me. :(
Up until the age of 9 or 10 i used to believe that babies came out of womans belly buttons, which is very logical considering all the visual clues you get. Needless to say i was disgusted whan i found out how babies really are born.
My mum always told us that when my brother was born he was "born in a black bag". I still don't really know what that means, I guess it was some membrane or something, but I'm pretty sure it wasn't a bin-liner which is how I always imagined it as a child. I always wondered how they got the bin-liner in there in the first place and then how my brother knew to climb inside it when he was only an unborn baby.
When I was yonger I used to believe a baby was carreid by a bird.
i used to believe this till I got proper education that babies come out of the mother by operating on her stomach.I also asked her once that"mom aren't there any stitch marks on your belly" &she burst out laughing.
When very young I asked my mother "If a baby is in a womans tummy, does it come out of her mouth?" She said "no the other end". After a short pause I asked "Well how do you get your feet back on then?"
I once beleived that when you were having a baby, you HAD to scream alot, and if you didn't no baby for you!
(this was fortunetly cleard up after a couple months)
When I was a child, i used to belive that a baby comes out from mom's navel not vagina, until I studied biology in school
when i was little and not as smart as i am now, I was under the impression there were two types of birth. Those which you had through your stomach (near enough right on this one) and the other through slicing open the crook in your arm............i havent a clue how i dreamt up that one.
When i was little i used to think a woman's tummy would deflate like a balloon when the baby was taken out.
When my little brother was little (about 5) he asked my dad where babies came from. Dad told him that they come out of the mother through the birth canal. Later on that day dad told my brother to tell my mother what he had learned about babies that day. He said that daddy told him that babies come from the "baby corral".
When I was a little kid, I don't know why, but I thought when a woman had a baby, she would lay on her stomach and it came out of her butt. And when she was having a baby, the baby would trigger something in her neck muscle and she would be able to twist it around and see the baby coming out. Wierd huh?
For some reason I believed that when a woman was about to have a baby that somehow, and I didn't know how, that the doctor's put a zipper on the mom's belly and then would unzip her and take the baby out.
A very obvious one, I used to believe that when pregnant women, like my mother at the time (I was three), had their babies, they had to push their belly button and then the baby would come out. I am now 16 and my mother is pregnant again, thankfully I no longer believe this.
when i was little i asked my mom how the doctor's knew if a baby was a boy or a girl. my mom told me they had a "special gift" because they were doctors.
When i was younger, i used to think that babies came out of the belly button. and i would always wonder why men couldnt have children
Until I was about five years old, I thought that babies were born wearing clothes.
i used 2 believe babies were born through your belly button
When I was about six or seven I was just starting to learn about having babies, having sex, etc. When I asked if it hurt, my mom said that it was like going number 2. I remember being terrified of going number 2. in the bathroom because I always thought a baby was going to come out.
When I was little girl, I overhead family members discussing childbirth - how long the labour was, how much pain the woman had, etc. - and I thought I had figured out why the woman had pain: the baby was biting its way out through her body. OUCH!!
