My mom told me that every time a woman had a baby, she would grow a new belly button. I told her I didn't believe her because she had three kids and only one navel, and she said, "Are you sure? When's the last time you've seen my belly?" That stopped me in my tracks!

When I was little, I used to believe that once a couple got married, they sat down together and prayed for however many children they wanted and then the wife randomly got pregnant until they had all their babies. Because of this, I wondered how Atheists had babies.

I used to believe that 'girl' sperm were pink and 'boy' sperm were blue, so that if a pink sperm got to the lady's egg first the baby would be a girl etc. This was after a very colourful sex education film at school. I believed this until a worryingly advanced age.

When I was a kid I believed that God made babies on a conveyor belt. And when they were complete, God would poke each baby in the stomach as they were passing by and say, "you're done, you're done." And thats why we all have belly buttons.

When I was really little I used to think that my mom gave birth to my dad and raised him. Then once he grew up they had all of us kids together. I didn't know how they did it though...

told a friend of mine that white mens sperm was white, black mens sperm was brown and oriental mens sperm was a kind of off green yellow colour.... she still believes it to this day.

I used to believe that sex was a recently thought up invention, probably invented only a couple of years before I found out about it. I remember thinking "Phew, that's lucky, my generation will now be able to carry on the human race."

I used to believe that my teenaged sister was telling the truth that my parents found me in the strawberry patch in our back yard. I remember looking at it very respectfully as a 4-year-old and thinking I had to tread carefully so as not to crush the plants, as I hunted for berries to eat on the sly. Strangely enough, it didn't disturb me to have my (jealous) sister telling me I didn't really belong in the family. I liked strawberries so much it seemed that a strawberry baby was much superior to a normally acquired infant. I felt quite satisfied to be me, and it made complete sense to me, because I REALLY liked strawberries.

When I was little, I overheard my mother telling a female relative about her pregnancies. Apparantly, with my little sister her stomach was huge, and with my little brother, well, that pregnancy was just a big pain in the a**. From then on, I was convinced that girls came out of the belly button, and that boys came out of women's butts. I used to always wonder if any baby boys were born into the toilet by mistake, while the pregnant women were taking care of business. Weird.

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.

I use to think if a man and woman made out she would become pregnant and then the baby would see through her belly button what the parents look like and become a morph of both of them..

I thought my neighbor breastfed her baby because they were too poor to afford baby bottles. Maybe they were!

I used to think that babies were made in a factory, and they get put in the hospital so they make it alive, because I noticed a room called Delivery, so I thought you went to the hospital to pick up your order!

As most children, I had trouble understanding where babies came from. My trouble, however, simply came in a misunderstanding of terms. For some reason, "born" sounded like "burned." ("Mommy, where was I burned?") Consequently, I was positive that children appeared from fire.

When my mom was teaching me about sex she said about how the father puts his "seed" in the mother and I pictured like an actual seed like for a plant would come out of his penis and thought it sounded painful

I used to believe that sperm were some kind of aerosol solution and that you could make someone pregnant by standing too close to them at the wrong time. Thank you Catholic School Sex-Ed........

Before I knew anything about sex and reproduction, I used to be amazed when someone looked like their father - I just thought that women got married and then automatically got pregnant - I had no idea that fathers had any part in this at all. I used to think "Gee, what a coincidence that some children just happen to look like the men their mother's are married to".
