top belief!

When I was little, I thought that babies came from melons--cantelope, honeydew, watermelons. I thought this was why women squeezed melons at the market; the women who wanted babies would pick the firm melons, while the women who didn't would pick the soft, squishy ones. I also believed that the melons with the babies in them came from pregnant women--hence the round stomach--and that somewhere there was a farm where women birthed melons to be sold at grocery stores.

Me and my brother would play "House" when we were little. First we'd have to give birth to the babies. I used to believe that babies just grew inside you when you reached a certain age and that they grew in your stomach. When your stomach was so full of baby that you couldn't eat anything, you pooped the baby out.

When I was little and I asked my mom to explain where babys came from she compared the pain of birth to pooping a watermelon. For a long time I thought that babies were born through the anus. I got realy confused when I saw an episode of a sitcom when a woman was lying on her back to give birth, I thought it would smother the baby!

When I was little I believed that when you were ready to give birth your stomach would just open up and the baby would fall out. Then when the baby came out your stomach would go back to normal. Then when I was in safeway with my mom one day I saw a book on giving birth and i flipped it open and there was picture of a baby crowning! I was so disgusted and ran and told my mom what I saw. She asked me how I thought it happend, and I told her. She couldn't stop laughing.

When i was young (bout) 3 my mom was pregnant with my sencond brother and she was in the kitchen getting somthing out of the hotpress and she turned to me and asked "Do you want another brother?" and i replied "I dont want a black one" My mother looked back at me in disbelieve and said that there was nothin wrong with coloured babies. Imagine my imbarsassment when she told me years later!

ATTENTION! No racism intended, I was only 3 years old and i am not racist!

I used to believe that when someone was giving birth, the baby came out of the belly button. I was wondering how the baby got through a small belly button.

I was convinced when i was about 6 that all women were born with babys in them, and that over time these tiny things would slowly grow until one day when you were all grown up and tall it would be ready.

I can remeber shopping in town one christmas with my mother, she was expecting a baby, and i turned to her and said 'I hope my baby comes out at the same time yours does'.. she was in histerics laughing, she still reminds me of it. Heatherjane x

I thought that babies were born through the anus. The only thing I thought about while having a painful poop was how much it was going to hurt to get a baby out of there!

While coaching a youth hockey program over the summer, an argument broke out among a group of 6 year olds on where babies came from. One child, among with a few of his friends believed that kissing is what got people pregnant. Meanwhile the other child was arguing that having a baby was random and that the woman pooped out the baby and the "type of baby it was depended on what the mother ate that day"

i couldnt help but laugh

I used to believe EVERYTHING, even inanimate objects were born. So one time I asked my Dad "How old is your truck?" *puzzled face* "Well how long ago was it born? And where are it's parents?"

One day, when I was about 4 or 5, I asked my mom if giving birth was painful. She replied, "Not really." I was astounded at this because, at the time, I believed the doctor would take a knife right then and there and slice you right open and pull out the baby! How could it not hurt!?!?!

Sounds like a C-section, but not how I pictured it.

When I was about 8 or 9 I used to believe that when a woman gave birth her stomach would rip open and the doctors would have to sew them back together.

i used to believe that when you had a baby it came from your anus and everytime you pooped the hole would get bigger so a baby could fit out of it later on

My parents were always honest with my sister and I about where babies came from, so I knew about sex and reproduction. My sister and I were both c-section babies, though, and I thought that was how babies were born. My best friend told me about natural childbirth, and I was completely horrified! I couldn't understand why ANYONE would do that!
