When I was little, I noticed that some couples would have their first kid a year after they were married. This led me to believe... you get the picture. One day, my resource room teacher and I were having a conversation. Her and her boyfriend were engaged and I said "a married couple always have their first baby a year after their married." She just laughed and said how cute I was.

When my little sister was about 4 years old, my mom was explaining pregnancy to her. My mom told her about the baby growing inside the mother, how it starts as an egg and grows into a person and then she mentioned that it grew in a sac filled with water. My little sister got a horrified look on her face and my mom, obviously worried, asked her "What's wrong?" and my sister said, "but aren't there sharks and fishes in there?"

I used to beleive that humans were not from storks or anything else I thought that parents wrote a letter to the president and asked permission to have a kid and if granted they would flush the toilet and out came a baby, but when they took a crap and flushed the babys in the pipeswould eat it.

When I was younger I thought that when a woman was pregnant she would feed her baby through her belly button!

When I was 4, my mom was pregnant with my little sister. At first I told them that they couldn't have the baby--I was the baby of the family afterall, and I wasn't about to be replaced! But I ended up really wanting to have a little sister, and got really protective of her when she was still inside my mom. As my mom was nearing the end of her pregnancy and was really showing (this was probably in the last 4 weeks before she had her), I insisted on going to into the bathroom with my mom every time that she needed to use the toilet. I was really afraid that if she wasn't careful, the baby would fall out and she would flush the toilet and not realize that she had lost the baby! So every time she was done, I made her let me check the toilet to make sure the baby wasn't in there before she could flush! (All in all, I really can't believe my mom put up with me!)

When my brother was about 3 years old, about the same time my mother was pregnant with me, he announced to my mother that when he grew he was going to 'grow a baby in his tummy just like her'. She was heartbroken having to explain to him that only girls can do that.

My mum's version of the birds and the bees was: "The guy puts his juice into the girl." So for years I had this picture of my dad pouring orange juice - not apple, which was yucky - into my mum's mouth. I imagined different flavours of juice would produce different kind of kids.

I used to think that, depending on which trimester, or which stage of pregnancy you gave birth in, you gave birth to animals, and that that's where animals came from. (It went mice, cats, dogs, humans. I had no idea about elephants and stuff like that.

When I was little I used to believe that if the mom wanted to give something to her unborn baby, she could just eat it. So if she wanted to give the baby a stuffed animal to play with, she would just swallow it whole.

I thought that only the mother made the child, the father was an "extra" in this area

I knew enough about the body to know that when a woman was pregnant, that the baby was in "her belly"...and I worried all the time about that poor baby sitting in there getting chewed up food dropped onto it's head all the time!

I thought that babies were made from the pee of a man and a woman. I was always so upset when my brother wouldn't flush the toilet, I was afraid that if I peed on his pee that would make a baby and I would have to flush the baby down the toilet.

When I was pregnant, I was sitting one day having a nice cup of tea. My 3-year-old daughter came and stood by me and said, "You should't drink that!" Startled, I asked, "Why not?" "When it goes down, it'll burn the baby's head!" she said.

When I was very little, my older sister told me over and over again that my parents had found me in a huge tree stump that was a little distance from our house. I didn't like that idea too much because I visited the stump quite often & all I could see there was wood rot and bugs. It made my skin crawl to think that I was once in there too somehow... but the big question then was what form was I in at that time? My conclusion was that I must've started off as a small red bug that somehow got transformed after my family spotted me and took me home! Sharing that story with my children through the years (all 50 of them... years, of course) has always given us a great chuckle.

I'm not sure if this is the right section,
but when i was a kid, my friend told me he is so smart because his mom swallowed a dictionary when she was pregnant. And he read the book in her stomach.
I got mad at my mom for not doing that, and i think it's her fault that i'm so stupid. Hehe
