When I was young.. I used to ask where i came from. My mum would tell me "Mum and Dad made you" This made me to believe that my parents got sent a cardboard box full of all my body parts and a set of instructions and they carefully read the instructions and put me together. (kinda like a robot)
I used to believe that you didn't have to have sex to have a baby. I believed that God would just put the baby in your tummy. I also thought babies came would kick the moms belly so hard that it would burst open and the baby would fly out.
I used to believe that if my mom didn't have me, or gave me away to someone else, the next baby that she would have would be me!
I used to believe that men gave birth to baby boys and women only gave birth to girls.
When i was a child , i asked my mom how i came to the world . She said that she and my dad,was so much in love that i just arrived ! So i thought that when my mom and my dad was in love , it just said : POFF! And i was born!
I used to believe that a mans penis was a big sack, and the testicles were little tiny balls about an inch in diameter. The man would open the weiner, and put it in the womans vagina. If they wanted twins, they would put in two balls. Then I asked my parents why they didn't put in two balls, because I wanted a twin. Silly me. They gave me the talk.
Until my freshman year in high school, I honestly thought that a man would put his baby maker in a woman's "pee hole" and the baby would come out her "poo hole".
I belived that rituals in a wedding are all that it takes for a baby to be born. My younger sis and I tried it out by following the rituals - well nothing happened :). My elder sis had believed that there is a tiny baby inside you from the day you were born and it grows gradually so that it will be ready to be born after the wedding.
When I was little, my parents used to tell me the story of where I came from:
They were really poor but wanted another daughter, so they got a big jar and started saving coins to buy one. It took a really long time, but eventually, they took the big jar full of coins to a baby store. They saw all kinds of babies, some with black hair, and some with pretty purple eyes. But while my sister was wandering around, she came across a beautiful little girl with golden locks and freckles, and called my parents over, and they agreed the moment they saw me. I was wrapped in pretty paper and ribbons like a present and brought home that day.
I used to believe that people got married and just wished for a baby. I dont even think anyone told me this, I just thought it up on my own.
When my little sister was born, my mom got me a present "from the baby" so that I would like the baby. I was really excited because the baby knew exactly what I wanted. But then, I asked my mom "Mama, where did the baby get that?" and my mom said "there is a mall inside my belly"
She tells me she told me right after she was just kidding, but somehow I missed the joke and I believed that there was a mall inside my mom's stomach for the longest time.
I had known about sex since I was little, and I knew about pregnancy and having babies, but I never knew that the two were related! So when people would say that someone had been trying to have a baby for a long time, I thought that meant that they sat around and concentrated really hard on getting pregnant.
I told my mom (I must of been around 7 because my brother was just a baby) that us girls have all the babies that they are going to have in our lives already inside of us. When we are ready to have a baby...somehow (this is the part I could not figure out) we would make them grow and the baby would be born.
Well, When I was younger, I went to a Catholic school. The way we learned sex education was to read it from a book. The book said that a woman got pregnant through an opening in her body, but they didn't say where....so I thought that there was a hole in every woman's side where they got pregnant.
When I was five my older sister told me that our mom found her in a cabbage patch and I actully believed her. :)
When I was about 5 I found my mother's book "What to Expect When You're Expecting" and I was fascinated by everything in it. Something got lost in translation, however, because I thought a trimester was a doctor's appointment you had to go to three times when you were pregnant. Well, my neighbor was pregnant, and one day my mother asked if I'd seen her, and I said, "No...maybe she had to go to her trimester today." That gave her a good laugh.
I understood how babies were made at an early age but was hazy on the details. I thought that the first time a woman had sex, the millions of sperm cells would fertilize every egg cell all at once. From then on, each month she would release a fertilized egg at ovulation and become pregnant unless she took birth control pills to prevent implantation. The first man she ever slept with would be the father of all her children. This explained why people made such a huge deal about waiting til marriage.
Forget the stork; I believed that when a baby was about to be born, all the 'fetuses" were lined up on a cloud in heaven, each securely in a car seat. When the mom was about to give birth, God would get the signal and push the baby off of the cloud, and they would land in the mom's belly just in time to...'pop' out.
My parents had me convinced babies came from a special baby store. You just went to the baby store, picked out one from the shelf, and took it home.
And when my sister was born, I told my mom to bring home a girl baby from the baby store, and she did. So when you're four years old, that means the baby store really is a true place.
When I was three or four years old and my mother was pregnant with my kid brother, I kept asking my mom if she was going to give birth to a kitty or a puppy.
While I understood the principle of pregnancy, I was convinced moms gave birth to everything, from birds to horsies.
