giving birthShow most recent or highest rated first.
for a long time i used to believe that birth could be given from both the anus amd the vagina and that it was just chance whichever one the baby came out from.
I used to belive that grown ups had babies by kissing eachother and leaving saliva in the female's mouth, the lady would swallow and have the baby in her stomach. When she was 9 months pregnant and the baby was developed, she'd up-chuck and puke the baby out.
I belived it until I was in primary 3, when we had our first sex ed. class xD
When I was pregant with my 3rd son (about 7 months along) I told his 3 yrd old brother we were going to see a picture of the baby (ultrasound). He very seriously looked at me and asked how many toys the baby had in there to play with.
My eldest child was born when I was 19 and very niave. Just before my due date one of the nurses at the OB office told me that after birth most women experience bleeding similar to that of a menstrual cycle and she recommended that I make sure I was prepared with the appropriate supplies at home. After that visit I stopped by the market for TAMPONS! A few days later it seemed pretty obvious tht wasn't what she meant.
When I was about 5, I believed that women gave birth to girls, and men gave birth to boys. I am now a teenager, and relise how it all happens.
When I was a kid I use to think that the color of the blanket (Blue or pink) that the doctor wrapped the baby in determined the sex.
when I was little and asked my Mom how the baby got out of a lady's tummy, she told me that ladies have a "special hole" for the baby to come out of. I thought that the " special hole" was your belly button!
A few years later, my little sister saw my Dad's belly button and thought that he was pregnant!-she must have used the same logic!
when i was in year 4 (age 9) i knew EVERYTHING about sex (or so i thought.) anyway, my friend and i were talking about giving birth, and she was really worried that when the baby came out it would be covered in...poo, coz she thought it came out of your bum! i tried to explain that there was another hole, the VAGINA, where the baby came out, but she insisted that there were only two holes, and it came out of your BUTT. bless..
Seems that many people had my same belief, but it used to really fill me with fear. I too believed that mothers pooped their babies out, but they did so while sitting on the toilet. I always used to worry about the babies drowning in the water and wondered how the mothers were fast enough to clean themselves and also save their babies.
I have a twin brother and when i was 2 or 3 I was in the waiting room with my mom and a lady came out with a new baby boy. I looked up at my mom and asked "Where is the other one?" I was devastated when she told me babies don't come in pairs! I felt sorry that the baby wouldn't have anyone to play with.
When i was little i believed that when u were giving birth, they would cut your stomach open and the baby would come out. Then they would glue you back together
When I was four my mom was pregnant with my brother. I asked how the baby would get out of her belly. She was going to have a C-section, so she said the doctors would open her belly like a zipper and take the baby out. She also explained that other babies came out of their mommy's "bottom". So, for years, I thought babies were pooped out.
I USED TO BELIVE THAT YOUR MUM WOULD GO IN HSPITAL WITH A FAT BELLY AND DOCTERS WOULD JUMP ON HER TILL THE BABY POPED OUT OF HER BELLY.
I used to believe that a storke would deliever babies but when I actually was old enough to see the really way a baby was born... I was feeling a bit stupid.
My cousin use to believe that babies came out of your belly buttom
When my son was 5 my sister had just had her first child. I have always been open with him about things in an age appropriate manner. Well he wanted to know how my nephew had gotten out of my sister. He loved animals so he had seen shows with animal live births but the concept of a human birth was hard to understand. I tried to say there was an opening that got bigger and that is how the baby got out. He didn't understand so I said it was like a door. He thought I meant an actual door like to his room. That confused him all the more. So I told him it was like a hole that would get bigger and the baby came out that way. This satisfied him & so ended our conversation. So a few weeks later his pre-school class was making construction paper butterflies out of heart shapes & pipe cleaners. They were glueing the pointed part of the heart together for the body, the pipe cleaner for the antenna the hump part of the heart was the wings of the butterfly. Well my son was glueing the bumps together and that was leaving an opening. So his teacher, who is pregnant & due any day, is pointing this out to him, that his butterfly will have a hole in it. He looks at her and calmly says "Well, that's where the babies come out". I worked in the same pre-school & she came & got me immediately to tell me. We laughed so hard we had tears in our eyes & it very nearly sent her into labor. I guess that's what I get for being honset with my kid :)
when i was younger i used to belive that babies used to come out like poop then when u flushed it down the toilet and then the doctor would come and bring it to you
My mom told me when I was about 6 that a woman had cravings when she was pregnant. I thought that if she got what she had a craving for, then she would go into labor. I thought this until I was about 8, and one day I really wanted some potato chips, and I got some out of the pantry and ate them. Shortly after I realized what I had done, and ran to my mom saying that I didn't waant to have a baby!
I used to believe that babies came out of womens belly buttons
At a young age, I was under the belief that having sex had something to do with kissing after you were married, that there was some magical type of kiss you could perform to make babies.
I also believed that if you positioned yourself right, you could possibly have a child without the opposite gender's involvement. This, in my mind, explained same sex couples, The Immaculate Conception, and Anakin Skywalker's mother (In Episode One, I clearly remember one of the jedi asking her, "Who is the father?" and her reply of "There isn't one." I took this extemely literally).
