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.

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!"

When I was very little, I was allergic to pollen, and since it coated our car every year, my mom explained what it was and how flowers grow. Not long after I learned about how flowers were made, I asked how babies were made, and she explained it in what she must have thought a quite understandable fashion, especially for a 4-year-old. Only problem was, I connected the two, and for years and years I had visions of sperm floating through the like pollen every time a man peed, randomly impregnating any woman that happened to be around.

When I was in year 4 at school we where learning about Egypt and Iíll never forget when another boy told the teacher that in Egypt a baby was born every 26 seconds. I was totally amazed by this and I actually believed that all the women gave birth every 26 seconds. I was more worried about the thought of having to pick so many different names for that many children.

I used 2 think that my mom had 2 eat me 4 me 2 b born. I also thought that babies came from baby powder. It makes sense to a 4 year old. I always thought that if I added water to baby powder i would get a little sister or brother. I believed that until I made a mess of my bed trying to mix baby powder and water. That was when my mother set me straight...

When I was younger I believed that the moment before a person was born, they would appear before a tall desk with a thick book on it. The book was the story of that person's life, and they had to choose to read their life, or live it. The stillborn babies chose to read about it and the babys that were born chose to live their life is my logic. hahaha

Hi. I used to believe that when two people (a man and a woman) after they got married, wished real hard for a baby and if they were lucky, God gave them one! Sad, I know. I had such an innocent view of the world. ] . [, oh well, goodbye!

Before I understood sex, I thought sperm was something a man gave to a woman, who would then put it inside her. I imagined it to look something like a vitamin, that would then grow into a baby.

No one told me, but I assumed that when a woman was pregnant, she had to spend the whole nine months in the hospital. I freaked out when my parents asked me if I wanted a sibling, not wishing to part with my mother for so long. I didn't tell them why I was so upset, otherwise they could have set me straight. I'm an only child :)
