When I was a kid my best friend at the time confided in me that she was afraid her mom was pregnant. When I ask her why she thought that, she told me that her mom didn't wear underwear. When I didn't understand she looked at me like I was stupid and said, "don't you know pregnant women can't wear underwear?" Of course within 9 mos. we both realized she was wrong since her mom never did have a baby...lol

I used to think that if you had sex while you were pregnant that you would have twins, triplets, etc...based on the amount of times you had sex.

When I was 6, I asked my mom where babies came from. Not thinking I was ready for the "talk", she calmy told me that a mommy and daddy go to K-Mart and put a baby on layaway. In 9 months, they go and pick it up. No explanation on why mommies get so big. (I was 6, she was under pressure!) They straightened it out for me a year later when my sister was born, but to this day, the customer service desk in the back of K-Mart freaks me out.

My mom told me that a mad man used to give babies to moms and dads who were sad....hensforth when the idea of sex crossed my mind I nearly died thinking that a crazy pedophile looked after me before I was born

I used to belive that white men's semen was white
and black men's semen was black, My "logic" was that it would explain black people having black babies and white people having white babies.

when i was about 5 or 6, i remember the commercials in between sesame street about now pregnant women shouldnt drink. i was really confused because everyone needed to drink, so i asked my mom why pregnant women cant drink, and she said because its not good for the baby. so then i proceeded to ask, "not even water?" so now i know better that they were talkin about alcoholic drinks!

top belief!

I wsa in the library one day when I was 9 and really bored. So, I found this kiddie book that said "Where Babies Come From". Since I had been pestering my mom to tell me, I figured I'd just read it and know. It was a story about this boy arguing with this girl to how mommies and daddies made babies. Well, further on, the boy's parents explain it to him, and I was completely digusted! I was scared that I would get in trouble for reading it, so I found a bean bag chair, unzipped it and stuffed the book in the middle of it. I dont' think the library ever found that book, and I never looked @ my parents the same.

I was in grade 10, when, in front of the whole class, while we had just "finished" the chapters on Mitosis / Meisis and Zygotes ... I asked my biology teacher, "I understood it mam, but where does this zygote really form? In the female body I presume, then how does she get MALE hormones inside?"


Surprisingly, all my friends (it was a girls school) knew about how it works, I got a stunned silence and stupid giggling after my question - sufficient to let me know I've asked a stupid questions. I got a fresh perspective in the recess that followed.

Needless to say, the teacher always believed I asked the question on pupose to embarass her and treated me accordingly.

I have NEVER asked someone "where do babies come from?" But I saw the news that this % of people are having sex. What does this sex mean? Nobody told me =(... I really thought that "sex" (that I herd in the TV) is the gender of someone...But, when I got older I realized that sex and where babies come from is connected.... And I was really shocked as in shocked! that the girl and the boy.........needed to do "that" to have a baby...............O_o

i used to believe that sex was how you make babies. but the weird thing is i thought you had to roll around in a field naked with another person and your bodies would morph into a small baby, which would be named by mixing the two people snames together, and that your parents were just virgins who were taking care of you until they had sex. and when people died it was just that they had sex and turned into a baby.

I used to believe that getting pregnant was like inflating a beachball. The Husband inserts his member into the Wife, and while pumps, pumps, and pumps some more, her belly slowly rises. This continues for as long as necessary. They might pause for a break, with them rubbing the belly going, "You reckon that's big enough?". The Wife then carries around a full-size belly for 9 months, to give the baby enough room and time to develop.

I was adopted, and always knew that meant I was "chosen" by my parents. Whenever we went to the grocery store, I would put a banana sticker on my forhead and ask "is this how much I cost" It eventually came to me having several stickers on my head at each visit.

I used to think that babies came from a baby store and that when my mother had to go the hospital when she had my little brother I thought that she and my dad were going to the baby store to pick one out. I believed this until about age 4.
