When I was little, I told my mom that I wanted to have 5 children and that they would all be boys. She then told me that it wasn't up to me because men determined the gender of the baby. And that was all she said, she didn't explain any of the logic behind it. So for the longest time, I thought that meant that men got to choose if they wanted a boy or a girl. In my mind I worked it out like this: When the woman was only a few months pregnant, the father-to-be would put his hand on her pregnant belly and say whether he wanted a son or daughter and that's what they would have. I guess I figured that involved some kind of magic. I didn't figure out otherwise until I was 10.

Once when I was still in kindergarten, I used to believe that in order for women to have babies, they would have to pray to God and ask for a baby boy. Somehow or another, the baby grows up rapidly into a grown man. Then, somehow or another, the woman will get pregnant after this took place.

As a kid I didn't know anything like "SEX" exsisted. I used believe if a girl falls in love with a boy or they get married,the girl becomes pregnant. Later when I got to know sex exsisted, I believed the guy would just put his thing into girls and lay still and had no idea for how long!

i used to believe that you could determine the gender of you baby by the position your where in during sex.
example:
-women on top = a girl
-man on top = a boy

Silly me ;-)!!!!

When I was little, my brother told me that babies were made by a man peeing inside a woman, therefor, my skin was made from my father's pee. There was nothing more disgusting than thinking you were made of pee. It took me a long time to get over that one!

I always wondered how it was decided if you would come out a boy or girl. When I was younger I believe that whichever parent wanted a kid more, than the baby would come out their sex. I'm a girl, so I obviously thought my mom wanted to have me more than my dad.

When I was a kid, around five or six, I found out that men and women somehow had sex and somehow it involved boy parts and girl parts. (I didn't know any specifics!) When I heard that the man puts his penis in the woman and fertilizes an egg, I thought for sure that my two testicles were two fully formed little human embryos just waiting to get squeezed into a woman and grow into kids.

This explained a lot of things for me, like why you didn't ever want to be kicked in the nuts. I thought it might even kill the little guys. I also thought that since I had two testicles, I could only have two kids. And men like my uncle, who had six kids, must have at some time had more.

Now that I'm a parent, I find it odd that I have two children, just like I always knew I would.

My mom used to tell me never to kiss before you are married. I had read somewhere about a baby being formed by sperm and egg. I also thought that babies lived in the stomach. So, when I was about 7, I pieced it all together. The sperm travels to the egg from the father's mouth into the mother's stomach when they kiss and then the baby grows there. Then, a couple years later I wondered why the stomach acid didn't eat up the baby and wouldn't all the food build up if the baby were blocking the way to the intestine? Then I found porn which straightened a lot out for me. (My parents never gave me the talk and refused to let me take sex ed)

I used to think birth control was where you could choose the sex of your child.

When I was a child, I used to believe babies were born in cabbages. Once my mother brought a cabbage home and I was scared she would cut it and kill the baby, so I used a pen to try to dig a tiny hole in it to see the baby...
No need to say the cabbage was ruined.
I didn't get punished though, for my mother thought it was cute. But she did explain that babies were NOT born in cabbages... I remained doubtfull for a long time.

When my mom was pregnant with one of my little sisters (I was 7), she got me books on baby development and birth because I was so curious about it all. I became quite the expert on how things worked. There was one thing I didn't understand, though:
"Mom, how does the sperm get from the man into the woman?"
"It happens when they're very close together," she said.
For years, I'd see couples sitting close together and try to see sperm flying through the air between them.

When i was about 5 or 4 i used to think that you had to be married to have a baby. And that if you prayed to god you would get pregnant. Than I thought the baby would come out of your mouth! Then a year later i learned the real thing...you know what i mean

When I was around 5 or 6, we were at my great uncle's house and several relatives started talking about my parents' wedding. I told them, "Oh yeah, I was there too." They of course knew this wasn't true, and asked where I was. I said, "I was in my mommy's tummy." I couldn't understand why they were laughing so hard at me. Of course what I had accidentally implied was that my mom was knocked up when they got married - which they also knew wasn't true, since I wasn't born for another 4 years... I still feel embarassed about that one, but I guess at the time I believed all babies were just waiting in their mommy's tummy until the right time to be born.

When I was 7 I broke my arm and went to the hospital for a cast. After the cast was put on
I asked when do I get my baby? Everyone laughed when I asked that and I didn't know why.
You see, I was 4 when my mother cut her finger and it was bleeding and they took her to
the hospital and after a few days when she came home she had my baby brother with her.
So I just new that any time a girl went to the hospital they gave her a baby when she left to
come home.

I used to believe that each girl was born with a seed inside her and that when she got married and was 25 that seed would turn into a baby. And that's where babies came from.
