I used to believe that when a pregnant lady's water broke, i pictured her doing something normal, like shopping in a grocery store, and then a flood would come from under her dress and we would all be ankle-deep in water, so whenever i saw a pregnant lady, i tried to run away from "the flood."
Until I was five, I used to think that women gave birth to baby girls and men gave birth to baby boys
When I was pregnant with my son my 3 yr old daughter would put her ear to my stomach and say she could hear the baby saying "Open the door, open the door"! I have to tell her this when she grows up.
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.
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 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.
When I was 5 I thought that baby boys came from men and baby girls came from women...
I used to think babies where born naked because their mothers were too lazy to eat clothes for them to wear
When I was younger, I used to believe that when babies were born, the doctors would untie the moms belly button, take the baby out, and tie her belly button back up.
When babies were born, I used to believe that the only way to tell if it was a boy or girl was to look at the ears. The girls had holes in their ears, the boys didn't.
I used to think when I was a little kid that babies came out of the bellybutton as spaghetti and the doctors would have to put the baby together like a puzzle.
High school field trip to the zoo. Whale with a HUGE erection. Crystal kept screaming "look, look, it's having a baby". We were all to embarassed to explain it to her. It was pretty funny.
When i was four my mum got pregnant with my little brother. I asked her where the baby would come out. She told me the baby would pop out her belly button.
From the on i presumed that her belly button would fly out and the baby would dribble out as a jelly type thing and become a baby. I got so scared that she wouldnt be able to find her belly button again i used to walk around with a sieve in front of her and a cushion to catch the baby on.
Everyone thought it was amusing so never bothered correcting me.
When I was younger, the only baby shower I attended occurred after the baby was born. So, I thought a "baby shower" was when they were going to give the baby an actual shower!
I used to believe that babies came out of one of a woman's knee-caps. When she wanted a baby, she would move the knee-cap, and one would pop out, kind of like a Pez dispenser.
OK, my husband thought that babies are born from a birth canal, which is separate from where babies are actually born, but never knew exactly where the birth canal was! I had to be the one to explain it to him at 30 years of age!
When I was little, I used to think that all babies were born boys and the doctors decided who would be girls (then would chop off their weiners). I was wrong (for the most part...).
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 was 3 when my younger sister was born. My mother had a ceserean (sp?) and showed me the scar/stitches from it. Naturally, this led me to believe that when a baby was ready to be born, it pushed it's way out of it's mother's stomach, ripping her skin on the way, and that's why it hurt so much. I believed this until I was about 10 and learned how babies are really born... probably almost as painful though ;)
When I was in 3rd grade this boy in my class I dont remeber what he was doing i just remember him screaming OH MY GOD I THINK MY WATER BROKE! haha and at that time i knew what it meant i still laugh at it to this day! (im 18 now)
