I once asked a friend if test-tube babies had bellybuttons or not.

I was eighteen years old.

When I was about 5, I believed that if you put your arm around your friend's shoulders, you'd have a one-armed baby when you grow up. I spent hours praying to God everytime I forgot and put my arm around my friends. I used to throw fits when people interrupted me because it meant I had to start my prayer all over again - I got interrupted a lot. I'm 24 now and my family members still use the story as a trump card to win any and all arguments with me.

that when a woman wanted a baby she had to press her tummy button every day to make her tummy get bigger as the baby grew then when she thought the baby was ready she pushed her belly button really hard and the baby just appeared in her arms

when i was a kid, one of the elders used to tell that i was born due to reproduction . I used to feel so bad. i used to see that elder guy in a bad sense. Actually i didn't know how was i born. I had some kind of feeling that i just came in this earth. Now when i remember those days i feel like laughing. Still we don't say to kids the actual reason abt. how they are in this world. We just say they are the gift of god. Later they gonna know theirself.

I come from India, where talking about sex is considered highly taboo. In my school, there was nothing called sex or health education. So when I moved to an American school in the 6th grade, I was shocked to hear the other kids (who were quite half-knowledgable) talking about periods and sex, which I had never heard of or even wondered about before. Being an only child, I didn't even have to face the question of where do babies come from. Tired of being teased by my peers, I went to the library and took out a book for kids, which showed the biological process of the sperm meeting the egg and the cycle of ovulation. I still didn't get the sex part, and thought that when things got hot between a couple, the sperm (which I assumed to be the tiniest-- as mentioned in the book-- little invisible dust particles) jumped from the man and into the woman's body to impregnate her!! I had no clue about the vaginal hole either!!

when i was 6 - 9 i asked my mom "mom, where do babies come from?". parents like hiding secrets from you so they told me that......when parents kiss a tiny egg comes from the boy and goes in the girls mouth. then the egg hatches and becomes a baby.i believed this for a couple of years but then i started wondering " why do people make out all the time and never have a baby?" .... everything got straightened out after i took puberty class

I was always told that a baby comes from people sleeping together. When our pet dog became pregant I was really afraid that the puppies would be born with my face. After all I "slept" (as in ..zzzz) with our dog many times.

When I was about six I overheard my dad telling my brother about sex. I just remember standing there with my hand on my stomach, thinking, "I have *eggs* in there? Can I break them if I jump? Do I have to lay them? How do they come out?"

When I was little i asked my mom "where do babies come from?", they can come out, but how do they get in.. she said "well.. daddy and I hug a lot and then a baby will grow out of an egg" I started to think but i thought it was a bit weird to hug and then make an egg.. out of wood I imagined.. and then put it into her belly through the bellybutton.. I believed it for quite a while

when i was young and far from the concept of babies, i arrived at my own conclusion and even explained to my mom -" in my opinion there must be something in the wedding neckband(in hindu culture we use the neckband instead of the ring) which actually causes the woman to bear babies. otherwise why on earth would woman become pregnant only after they are born ".
my mom just laughed diminishing my enthusiasm to publish my findings!

When i was 3 i used to believe that when a person wanted a baby they would goon this website called "Make-a-baby" you would write in all the details ( gender, eye colour, hair colour, personality etc.) then they would deliver it to you. I asked my mum why men didn't go on www.make-a-baby.com she said men couldn't be bothered to go through all the questions. Then i found out why men couldn't have babies, nice.
