giving birthShow most recent or highest rated first.
I used to think when babies were born they climbed out of the mother's stomach in some way (possibly out of the navel) because my mother had told us about the Caesarean section and that we came out that way.
This theory, however, was crushed by my best friend when we were going to start school. She also told me how babies were made. x.x' I remember being disgusted.
I used to believe that pregnant women had beach balls under their shirts, and that when the baby was born, they had a special needle that they'd use to pop the mom's belly so the baby could come out, and when they were born the doctor could decide if they were going to be a boy or girl. I wanted 24 kids... one for each hour of the day. :) Now I know better.
i used to believe that babies came out of birth marks
I used to think babies where born naked because their mothers were too lazy to eat clothes for them to wear
When I was little, I thought that, when women went in to have a baby, a giant magnet would come down and pull the baby out of her stomach
when i was little i thought that for babies to be born , that when the pregnant women the nurses unknotted their bellybuttons with a metal stick and just took the baby out ! , i was rather weird ? x
I found out about sex when I was 12, but I remained unclear on the actual birth process until I was 17 or 18. I believed the baby would come out the mom's butt. I was always terrified by this since I thought a 9 month pregnant mother might go to poop but accidentally plop the baby into the toilet.
I once believed that moms had babies out of their belly buttons, and that was why my brother had an outie and I had an inny.
When I was 5 I thought that baby boys came from men and baby girls came from women...
When I was very young, I would think that the only way a baby could possibly be born, was by ripping it's way out of the belly button.
At some point I knew babies came out of mommies bellies, but I thought they came bursting directly out. I asked my mom, "what happens to the split after the baby is born?" And she said, "well, the muscles just kind of close back up I guess." And I thought, naw, how can that be, there's a tear down their bellies!
(I was born in mid sixties, before C sections were so popular.)
When I was a child I used to believe that the babys come from storks
when i was young, i thought that when a baby was born, god calls us on the phone and informs usto come and pick him up!
I used to think that when pregnant women were ready to give birth the baby would come out of her belly button. I was shocked and horrified when my older cousin shook her head, and said "they come out of your…." then she covered her mouth and pointed down towards the "real location." For a very long time after that I made sure to tell anyone I could that I was never going to have babies!
I used to believe that if a woman wanted to breastfeed that she had to get shots in her nipples to make the milk start coming out.
When I was about 4, I thought that babies were born by climbing a ladder from the Moms stomach, up her throat and to her mouth and once they came out of her mouth they would then grow to normal baby size. To me it was the only logical way a baby could get out from the Moms tummy since there weren't any other openings for them to use.
Me and my Mom still laugh about it to this day and try to figure out how I ever thought up such a thing.
when I was little, a friend of my mom's had a baby shower and she was invited to come. I thought it meant she was so big that the women had to help bathe her before she had the baby, I decided I'd NEVER want a baby shower.
I used to believe that when I was in the womb, there were little drawers built into my mom's tummy where I stored all my clothes before I was actually born. And just before she gave birth, I took everything off and left it in the drawers inside her. I was also convinced I was able to see out of the womb through my mom's bellybutton.
I used to think that when they said "push" in a delivery room, it meant that the mother was holding a button. Robo-Baby haha.
When I was about six or so, I asked my aunt where babies came from. She told me storks brought them to mothers in the hospital. I asked why the women at the hospital screamed and she told me the storks were man-eating and were trying to eat the mothers after the long flight. I believed her for the longest time...
