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 grew up in a family with 11 kids and i was the oldest and also the only girl so when i was 5 and already had 3 other brothers with 1 more on the way i asked my mom why do i have so many brothers she said cause i was lucky so the next day i told my friend haha I'm lucker then you and we both belived that for about 5 more years
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.
I used to believe that a Test-Tube Baby was a baby that had to undergo so many tests, that they had to keep it in a germ-free tube. I got several odd looks when I overheard 2 people at the airport discussing this subject, when I yelled out "I was a Test-Tube Baby- and I don't think it's funny to have to study babies!!!!" Needless to say, I've just decided to never weigh in on the subject again..... by the way, I am NOT a Test-Tube baby
I was told by a friend that after a woman had a boy she couldn't have any more kids, and since her youngest sibling was a boy and I only had a younger brother, I believed it.
When I was about 6-7 I asked my mum how I was made. She told me that she planted an apple pip in her belly button and waited for the tree to grow. For the nine month she had to lie flat on her back so the tree could grow. Once it produced fruit (babies) she had to choose the best one from the tree (me!). Apparently I used to squeak alot so she nicknamed me squeaky pip from her pip tree. Years later she had my sister and made my sister beleive that when she was inside my mums stomach she could see the world through her belly button.... just wierd.
When my mum was explaining how babies are fed through the belly button, I somehow got confused and for way too long believed that a pregnant woman spoon fed a baby through her own belly button.
i used to believe that you fell from the sky to your moms lap when you were about to be born. im so weird.
When I was really little and didn't understand babies,I thought that you bought them at the hospital for free.When my mum went had a baby,I had a lot to learn...
I used to think that if you wanted a baby, you would press your belly button, an in 9 months, (I knew that bit), out would pop a baby, .. no wonder I couldn't figure out why you had to go to hospital??
I was born at Easter and when I asked where I came from , was told I was found in an Easter egg bought for my sister Carol, wearing a silver paper nappy! I believed that for years, and still wish it were true. It`s better than being found under a cabbage!
When i was about 5 years old, my mother would go to the doctors frequently b/c she was sick. My mother said she had to go to the doctor because it was a "woman" thing and i would understand later. But i came to a conclusion that everyone was born with a penis and In order to make girls, doctors would have to chop off the male's penis so the the baby could come out b/c the hole is bigger. i guess i was wrong...
