When my Dad told me that babies came from an egg, I thought they would come from ANY egg. So I used to sit on chicken eggs waiting for them to "hatch". All I got was yolk on my butt!

As a kid I believed that the baby either had to originally be in the mom or the dad, and I believed that my mom just wouldn't tell me which one because it was a big secret. I decided that it was the sperm that was to become the baby because it could already move, and mom wouldn't admit to that because she was jealous that dad had the baby first.

My Younger brother wanted to know where babies came from, so he asked my Mom...He was around 5 or 6 and Mom wasn't ready to explain this to him yet...SO, She told him that she bought him at K -Mart on "Blue Light Special"!
For years he really believed this, Especially since the other 3 of us would threaten to take him back for a refund because Mom kept his receipt, just incase she wasn't happy with her purchase!

(yea, I know we were pretty rotten)
Sorry "Pooh Bear"! Love ya kiddo!

When I was little my mum told me that she had bought me from the baby shop. My teachers told me that babies grew inside their mummy's tummys, and somehow, I managed to believe both. I never quite connected the two and thought 'hang on, one of them's got to be wrong...'

When i was little i thought babys just happened as soon as you got married (that there was no act to begin with). One day me and my mom where walking past some sort of Birth Control Stand. i asked her what it was and she said it was so you stop making babys.
I told her she should get some so i dont get a little brother or something.
LOL. she truned pink after that (and i did'nt know why for years).

This is pretty weird. Brace yourself! I'm a boy, and when i was little, I thought that girls privates were just like a tiny little hole in the front of the pubic area (right about where the penis is) that they peed out of. Anyway, I thought that when they peed, it had no pressure behind it, so it would just like dribble down the front and fall down which is why they had to pee sitting down. I thought that when you had sex, you just put your pee-pee in the girl and then peed in her (GROSS!!!!!!!!) and it would shoot up into her bladder and mix with her pee. I thought there was something about boy pee and girl pee mixing that made a baby (I thought girls pee was pink by the way). I wondered why there weren't thousands of little babies growing in the sewers. I figured the government must put a special chemical in the sewers to keep the boy pee and the girl pee from mixing. Thank God we had an anatomy book lying around that I read when I was 12 and it corrected a lot of things for me, otherwise, I'd probably be pretty warped these days. :P

Until she was about 12 my sister belived that she would be able to chose the sex of her baby. Her idea was that it went: Man on top-its a boy, Woman on top-its a girl. It was only when I asked her what she expected to give birth to after doggie style that she finally noticed that her plan wasnt quite so fool proof!

i remember when i was younger (it was the time were peer pressure was high on having a boyfriend- and i did not have one) there was a month when i didn't have my periods n i was panicing because i couldn't understand why. So i made a conclusion that made sence to me that because i didn't have a boyfrind my body seced it a stated producing sperms that got me pregnant as a punishment to not having a boyfrind.

I believed that girls were born as boys, and boys were born as girls, and you changed when you were still a baby.

I used to believe that boys had boy babies, and girls had girl babies.

That was when I was 3-7. I'm 15 now.

I thought you had to be married to get pregnant.. as in I thought it wasn't physically possible to get pregnant unless you were married.

My mother made a story on how my sister came into our family. She said that there are babies all line up in a hospital. She went and picked the the most beautiful one. I asked her what of the babies not picked by anyone. She replied that they become doctors. (I never asked where the babies came from in the first place!)

I used to believe that if a pregnant woman had a bump out the front she would have only one child. Twins meant bumps out both sides. Side bumps and a front bump was going to be triplets. Quads would have been very uncomfortable with bumps in four directions. More than 4 bumps (babies) I couldn't even begin to think about.

When I was little I thought the way a baby got in you was that the guys thingy went into the girls belly button and that made her pregnant because he pushed her button. Needless to say I was scared when i started school and everyone tried to put their fingers in your belly button. I thought their thingy was their finger!!!!! And you could get pregnant.

When I was little, I thought that after you got married, your babies were shipped to you in boxes with airholes.

I always thought if someone wanted a black baby they ate a watermelon seed and if someone wanted a white baby they ate a cantelope seed. If someone had twins that meant they accidentally swollowed more than one seed. I was ALWAYS very, very careful when eating either of these melons.

when I was tiny I thought that before I was in my mum's tummy I was a twinkle in my dad's eye for a few years.

I used to believe that girls were born from mothers and boys were born from fathers.

We are just two sisters: so that confirmed why we were both born from my mother.

After all, it doesn't seem such a bad idea....

When I was in elementary school, and we were somewhat learning about sex, I became perplexed because I didn't know what would happen if a man peed while having sex. I asked all my friends and we came to the conclusion that a "pee baby" would be produced. Our drawings revealed that a pee baby resembled a normal baby, only made out of water balloons filled with pee.
