When you were little did you ever pretend you were pregnant?

I don't ever remember me or my sisters doing this. We did a lot of gender role play like carrying around baby dolls, playing house, talking like we were married...but I don't remember any of us pretending we were pregnant and haven't ever heard of other girls doing ti...but I think its weird that I never did

  • oh yeah me and my girlfrends would wear aprons that tie around the waist. We'd wear one above our boobs and the other at our waists. It looked like maternity clothes!! We never got to the part of pretending to actualy have the baby though.

  • I just don't remember ever doing it! It is so weird to me too because I knew "where babies come from" pretty early and from an early age wanted to be a mother, but apparently I skipped the hard wish I could skip it

  • I never did, and none of my three daughters have so far, but doesn't mean it's a bad thing, probably a gender pretend game maybe most commonly played by girls ages 4-8 that have a pregnant mom.
