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.

When I was very young I used to think 'human beings' were 'human beans'. (This goes back long before I could read so I was judging by the sound of what people were saying.) So this meant I thought that people grew from the ground like a runner bean.

When I was 5 my parents got divored. When my dad and new stepmother - who weren't married yet - told me my stepmother was going to have a baby and it would be a new brother or sister I told them that it wouldn't be my brother or sister because it was 'hers' and not my mom's baby. They told me it would be my sibling because it was my dad's kid and I said "Boys can't have babies!' In my mind a boy became a dad just because he was married to the lady who had a baby. I knew nothing of sex and because no one was willing to explain how girls got pregnant it took me a while to accept my half brother as really my brother and not just some kid to play with.

I used to believe that a man only had six sperms (I somehow got confused when my mom was telling me the facts of life) and I couldn't quite figure out how come my aunt and uncle had seven kids.

I used to belive that your parents went to heaven and told god what type of child you wanted. I'm ten and I know what really happens (shudder)

Me and my brothers used to call sex 'urruh' because of the noise my mum and dad used to make.. we were fasinated on what was happening and why it looked so fun. I understood the part on how the baby was concieved but i used to think that the baby got out the mums body by the belly button/the doctor sliced the tummy open. Or something like that.

I used to believe that babies where flat-packed from MFI until I was set straight on the matter by a very imageful video.

My first grader's were having a discussion about animals that lay eggs. One child asked, "Do people lay eggs?" Another child responded, "NO! People lay babies!"
