giving birthShow most recent or highest rated first.
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...
A few years ago, my younger brother and I were playing with eachother when the conversation trurned to babies and he mentioned to me "Babies come out of your bumhole."
When I asked him if he was sure he said, "Well, yea. Where else would they come out."
He has also mentioned this several times at the dinner table and to his AND my friends.
I think he knows the truth now.
He should be ashamed.
up unitl the age of eleven i used to think that all pregnant women had to do was push their belly buttons back in to make the stork bring the baby. when i asked my mother this she laughed at me and said through happy tears "if only"
i used to belive that having a baby means that they would go to the store and buy one and came back with a baby and i would say that i wanted 1 too.
I still laugh about this, but i grew up wit ha dear friend of mine, and when where six, we thought that babies where the result of two adults taking a dump toghether... it was just really funny cuz we so strongly believed it! i was realieaved when i heard it was false...
One day I asked my mom, "Since babies come out of their mom's butt, could a mom have a poop as big as a baby?" I love the fact that I didn't even consider that I could be wrong about where babies come from.
