When i got to the age of wondering where babies come from my parent told me that my mum had an egg. i had this vision that there was this big warehouse with mountains of egg box cartons with one egg in them. There was one's where you could decide the gender or there was the luck dip aisles.

I used to think that if a woman wanted a baby, all she had to do was take a special pill: pink for girls, blue for boys. After careful thought, I decided that the father's role was to provide moral support.

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.

when we were little, my cousin and i determined that parents only had sex one time and the number of babies they had depended on the length of time they had sex. therefore, we determined, my parents had sex longer than her parents, because my parents had 3 children and hers only 2.

i took my friend and her four year old daughter to my first ultrasound. we explained to miss 4 that we were going to see the baby and she was absolutely terrified because she thought they were going to cut my tummy open!

When I wasabout 4 or 5 years old my family and i were at a church event. my mom was talking to a pregnant woman, and i asked why her belly was so big. she then rubbed her belly and said my baby is in here. From that point on I thought she was a horrible woman because she ate her baby. Now that I have kids of my own I realize how silly I was.

I thougt that 9 months was the time most people needed to get everything they needed for a baby and if you were organized earlier you could have your baby earlier

I used to think that eggs were at first located in the nose of the father. I don't know how I thought they got inside the mother, but once they did, I thought the parents chose which one to have as a child.

I was told that people were made in Tescos in Dorking.

I suppose that my mother told me that part of a baby comes from "daddy's" testicles, so anyway, I believed that the whole testicle was somehow ejaculated through the man's penis and became the babies brain! I remember asking my mother if I would only be able to have 2 children or if they could put another one in!

I used to believe that my parents would pray to God if they wanted a baby, and the next day, he or she would be born. I think I was 12 before I realized this wasn't how babies were born. :)

When my wife was pregnant, my little niece told her to eat plenty of sugar and candy. When she asked her "why?", my niece said that she wanted us to have a girl because girls are made of sweets.

When I was three, my uncle remarked about my belly that it looked like I was having kittens. I actually thought I was pregnant with cats.

I used to believe that the Daddy used to wee inside the Mummy to make a baby and the more wee-wee he did inside her meant you were taller when you growed up.

I used to believe that the neonate ward
in an hospital was a super-specialized
sort of store for babies . . . you went
to the hospital, the same way you went
to the butcher or bakery, and pointed
out the one you wanted; then, they sent
you home with your new kid. This belief
was reinforced by the fact that my mom
had a no-show pregnancy when I was 5.
We've got a picture of her at ~8 months,
in a bathin suit; and, all you'd say was
that she had a little beer belly.

Everyone always says that my sister takes after my mom, and I take after my dad. So my parents used to tell me that my mom had my sister, and my dad had me! It made perfect sense, too, because it seemed like he was still carrying some weight from the pregnancy!

I used to think that when a girl was born, there was already a baby inside her. As she grew, so did the baby, and when she was ready (meaning married) it would be born.

For some reason when I was a very young child, I was under the impression that sperm were located in the feet.

I don't recall how I thought sex occurred at the time. Luckily.
