giving birthShow most recent or highest rated first.
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.
I used to believe that babies came out of your belly button. What else could they possibly be for?
when i was 5, i believed babies were brought by a woman on a motorbike with a sidecar. my cousin was adopted and i was at my aunts house when he was brought to her house and the woman who brought him drove a motorbike with a sidecar. that put an end to my belief in the stork
When I was about 8, my aunt became pregnant. My mom told me at this time, that babies came out of a womans vagina. (Kind of young I think, but, I digress). After seeing my Aunts baby for the first time, I thought about how big it was. I told my mom that I didnt think a baby would fit out of mine when I got older. She assured me that it would. However, she didnt know that I was unaware of the actual "hole" if you will, I thought that all that went to my vagina was my clitoris, and until I was about 12, I thought that when I got older, my baby would come out of it.
I used to believe that you were made of poop because your mom would poop you out in the toilet. It made sense because I didn't know where my poop came from either
A girl I knew in elementary school convinced me that if you were fat enough, you could have a baby through your arm. I never quite understood how it would work, but I believed her.
