giving birthShow most recent or highest rated first.
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?"
I used to believe all babies came out as girls and later on in life some of those girls turned into boys
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 wee, I used to think that Mums gave birth to boys (because i was a boy) and Dads gave birth to girls
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!
When I was little, I was SO puzzled about how babies were born. I then made the theory that women gave birth through their mouths.
...I never wanted to have children after that [EVER.] I kept thinking I would die because I couldn't breathe. Then when I found out how it actually happens, I screamed and, still, didn't ever want to have children.
When I was about 8 years old, I used to watch a few TV programs from time to time. One of them was "Please Don't Eat The Daisies", which was a short lived sitcom about a family with four boys (two of them twins), similar in style to the Brady Bunch that came out a few years later. In "Daisies", the mother was kind of bubble headed, a bit wacky/silly. Somehow I had the idea that when a mother had a lot of kids, it mentally drained her, to the point where if she had too many she'd become really stupid. So I cautioned my mother not to have any more children (I was the oldest of 2). She asked me why and I said "because I wouldn't want you to become stupid." Well, I explained my crazy notion and she laughed, telling me it wasn't true. Even still, I secretly believed it might be true until I was a few years older and I asked a few "careful" questions of my elementary school science teacher, to later learn how silly the idea really was. ;-)
My Mom used to talk about the child that she lost before I was born, so everytime we went out I was really close to them just in case.
When I was about 7 or so and I had just learnt about masturbation I though that the good feeling that came from that was what giving birth felt like, and women screamed and moaned because of the nice feeling.
My husband used to believe that Labor Day was the day of the year when all the pregnant women had their babies.
I thought babies came out of the motherís bellybutton.
I used to believe that before my siblings and I were born, we all lived one on top of another in my mom's belly, and instead of coming out as babies, we came out as old as we were at the time that I thought this. So, my sister wouldíve come out a 15-year old, my brothers 14 and 5, and me 4. I wondered, too, how we all fit in there, because we were much bigger than my momís tummy!
