When I was three or four years old and my mother was pregnant with my kid brother, I kept asking my mom if she was going to give birth to a kitty or a puppy.

While I understood the principle of pregnancy, I was convinced moms gave birth to everything, from birds to horsies.

During my mother's pregnancy with my youngest brother, they bought a book and talked to me and my two brothers about sex and where the new baby came from. From then on I believed that my parents only had sex four times - once for each kid they had. I thought sex automaticly resulted in kids untill 7th or 8th grade.

At the age of three, I used to believe that doctors and nurses made babies in the hospital and that you could get a baby on a first come, first serve basis. Many were the times when my poor mother had to try and distract me as we played "tug of war," while walking past the local hospital while I begged my mum, "Let's go in and get a baby Mummy! Let's go in and get a baby NOW! I want one NOW" "Tomorrow," she'd always tell me, " Not now. Maybe tomorrow. We'll go tomorrow." Sadly for me, tomorrow never came and I remain ( thirty three years later) an only "child"! Oh well!

I had asked my Mom where babies came from. She responded that a Mom and a Dad made a baby out of an egg. I wasn't able to pry the facts out of her for months; in the mean time I assumed that mom and dad went to an Egg Factory and assembled eggs (which closely represented Mr. Potato Heads) together... Daddy added his pieces, and Mommy added hers...

My daghter got very curious about how babies get in the mommys tummy. She was not satisfied with the safe answers I was providing. So I gave her a slightly technical but edited version of how it startes to grow in the mommy. I told her mommys have very small eggs inside them, and that daddys put a lot of very small sperm inside the mommy that have a race and swim to the egg. Who ever gets there first goes in the egg, and startes growing into a baby. She seemed satisfied with the answer. I asked if she had any questions and she replyed No. about a week later we were going to the store just me and her. She was very quiet and I asked her what she was thinking. She said," Moma does sperms got faces?" I replyed "No honey why?" She then asked me how they know how to get to the egg if they can not see where they are going. I replyed, "They just know." I was trying so hard not to laugh.

When I was four my mother had an ectopic pregnancy. My parents were explaining to me what was going on and they told me that, "The baby is stuck in the tube leading to where the baby is supposed to grow." Well, savvy little 4-year-old that I was, I knew darn well that babies grew in the tummy. I further knew that the esophagus (although I likely didn't know the word) was the tube that lead to the tummy. For years I thought the baby had been lodged in my mother's throat.

i used to believe that the term "sleeping together" really meant that they slept together, as in fell asleep at the same time and that's how women got pregnant, I could never figure out how the whole penis in vagina thing worked while you were snoring away...

I used to believe that your tummy button was the hole where you put a key to open the door to get the babies out.

When I was kid, I don't remember if it's when I saw my uncle's wife pregnant, or when they had their baby (my cousin).. anyway, I asked my uncle's wife where did they get the baby from, she told me that they went to the market and bought it.
So I imagined that there is a special market for selling babies, hahhahaha, I still have the image in my head!!

Long time after, I discovered the real truth!! lol

I used to believe that a baby shower meant that the pregn ant woman would have a special magic shower that dumped presents instead of water! =)

This isn't really a belief, or at least I only believed it for an hour or so, but I'm adding it anyway because mothers may appreciate it. In 8th grade sex ed, the teacher had one of those cross-section pictures, as if you sliced someone right down the middle, and this one was of a pregnant woman at full term. In this cross-section picture, the urethra and rectum appeared to be squashed completely flat, and the bladder was significantly flattened too. So at the end of class I went up to the teacher and asked, "everything isn't really flattened like that, is it? it just looks that way from the way the picture is made?" My teacher -- who had a couple of kids -- laughed and explained that no, everything really is squished like that and that she had to go to the bathroom like every half hour near the end of her pregnancy (an experience I know is shared by many moms). This did not exactly make me want to have kids.

I used to believe that in order for a woman to have a baby, she had to take one that was already born and swallow it. Then she would go to a doctor a few days later and he would cut it out of her stomach. I never understood how a woman could swallow something so big.

After watching a sex-ed film in elementary school, I thought the way to get a girl pregnant was to pee in her.

I thougt that 9 months was the time most people needed to get everything they needed for a baby and if you were organized earlier you could have your baby earlier

I believed that when a baby was born, he could remember his prior life and his time in Heaven in detail but he couldn't tell anyone about it due to lack of communication skills. As he learned to speak the language of his parents, he gradually forgot all of the previous information that would've answered all of the secrets of life.

I never knew about the sex making babies thing, so I thought a woman just became randomly pregnent. When I was 6, everytime I pooed i checked the toilet to see if a baby came out!

I use to believe that babies came out of a mothers butt. Thus, I thought African Americans came to be when the nurse refused to wash off the baby.
